Big Dave’s Big Thoughts

Good News! Apparently you CAN eat expired food!

We’ve all been there: you’re looking through a cabinet and you find a can of something delicious. “HELL YES! Fajita Chunky Soup,” you exclaim with childlike joy. Your joy is quickly turned to despair when you check the date and note that it expired somewhere around the time you were standing in the corner of that 7th grade Valentine’s Day dance, and you’re afraid the smell that would come out of that open can is rivaled only by that of an open grave, so you chuck it and head to Jimmy Johns. Ok, so maybe that’s just my life story, […]

Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

On Saturday, I teamed up with Roseanne and a host of others to form the WKXA “Cancer Kickin’ Cruisers” team at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure in Findlay. With over 3500 registered participants and thousands more out to watch, this year’s walk was even bigger than last year, which is a BIG statement. One of the things I loved is how much the folks who live along the route supported it with balloon, signs, heck, several of them even had BANDS playing!

Wet Nose Wednesday – Lilly

This week’s Wet Nose Wednesday Pet of the Week is Lilly, and she’s a sweetheart. She’s been at the Hancock County Humane Society for just about a year, and is definitely ready for her forever home. Lilly might seem a little intimidating at first, but she really is a great dog who just needs a chance!

10 Commandments of Grocery Shopping

              It’s often a full-body workout that you must get fully mentally prepared for before diving in… it’s the grocery run. I don’t know about you, but despite what I always think is a pretty well stout plan, I end up walking into the store on Sunday afternoon when it’s totally full of the slowest people, and my list isn’t anywhere near the right order. To make it easier for everyone, I found (ok, I stole it) thanks to Amy Heugel from   1. Thou shalt not leave your cart in an empty […]

Little Big Town in Toledo

Holy. Smokes. Like Karen says at the end, this isn’t something that happens every day. Little Big Town’s show at the Toledo Zoo Amphitheater last weekend featured some BLAZING stuff from Chris and Morgan Stapleton on guest vocals for “Elvira.” It’s not my video, I stole it from youtuber Kathleen Miller, but I can tell you that I was about 3 feet away from her for this, and the audio is just about as good as it gets. In the world of music you have “singin’” and you have “SANGin’.” This is the second one.  

About Me


WHERE ARE YOU FROM: Born in Findlay, but spent most of my early years in McComb, so I guess I kind of claim them both as my hometown.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE COUNTRY ARTIST? Little Big Town. They sound so very good live, and there’s a lot of material that came out before they hit it big with “Pontoon” that I really like. I still love “Boondocks” of course, but “Good As Gone” is great, “The Reason Why” is awesome, “Kiss Goodbye” is pretty powerful stuff. They also have an unbelievable story of sticking to it despite all kinds of setbacks, from record label shenanigans to the unexpected death of a spouse, it’s not been an easy road for these 4!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE COUNRY SONG: It does change. For a long time it was “Sounds So Good” by Ashton Shepherd because it was just a perfect summer song. Hard to be in a bad mood with that one coming through the speakers. Lately I’m afraid I’m falling for Kacey Musgraves. There is a lot of music out today that seems sort of… robotic. It seems like all you have to do is mention a tailgate, some moonlight, a little booze, and some form of blue jeans (cutoff or otherwise) and you’ve got yourself a hit. Kacey isn’t always what you’d call uplifting, but at least she is believable!

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTE: “I am having a very bad day. I just got out of jail this morning, already I have been shot at, I was on a bus that flipped over 17 times, somebody tried to stab me in the bathroom, and somebody blew up my Porsche.” – Eddie Murphy in “Another 48 Hours.”

WHY DO THEY CALL YOU “BIG DAVE”: One reason is because I’m really tall. I stand 6’ 8” which makes people exclaim: “Wow, you’re really tall!” when they first meet me. “Tall Dave” however, doesn’t sound very cool! It works out because here at WKXA there are at least 4 of us named Dave, and we have to tell each other apart somehow!
