Jon Prell

I have been at WKDQ for 13 years and have loved every minute of it. My career started in Southern California and I arrived in Evansville in 1994. I have three children that keep me very busy and the rare opportunity to go out and not have a six foot mouse serving your table is a rare and welcome treat. I love motorcycles and classic country and even host the WKDQ Country Classics show every Saturday from 6-10am. If I can I can ever play a song for you, let me know at wkdq.com.

If your family is like mine, you love your pizza. The question we always ask is which size pizza is the best value..should we get two mediums, two smalls, or a medium and a large? It's a real dilemma in our house and we usually answer that question by determining how hungry everyone is.
