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.

Have Political Campaigns Become Nothing More Than Character Assassinations?

Well, today is Election Day for the 2014 mid-term election, the polls are closed and I could not be happier to see it go for one simple reason...the negative attack ads that go on between candidates anymore that having nothing to do with the issues or solutions to the problems. It's all about tearing down the other's integrity and character.
