Dave Wheaton

I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as quick as I could. I'm originally from Battle Creek, Michigan (home of Tony the Tiger). I've got two kids who take up most of my time out of the office, but when I get "me time", I'm either taking in some live music or a sporting event. Since relocating, I also fell in love with the Texas music scene. I've been lucky enough to be nominated for DJ of the Year 4 straight years by the Academy of Texas Music, and was the 2009 recipient of the Academy's Palmwood Award. I'm a huge sports fan, and my loyalties are with the Michigan Wolverines, Chicago White Sox and (sorry) the Pittsburgh Steelers.

‘Oz the Great and Powerful’ Reviewed By Nathan, My 13-Year Old Son

My 13-year old son, Nathan, has become quite a fan of movies lately. And as is the case with most teenagers, he has an opinion about pretty much everything. So I figured we could combine his appreciation for cinema and hearing himself speak, and have him review the movies he goes to see.

Dave is Caught on Video Attempting to Play Guitar

A while ago, I wrote a blog about New Year's Resolution ideas. As the start of 2013 came and went, I came to the realization that, while I offered some suggestions that I believe are pretty good, I hadn't actually chosen one of my own. So, I decided to put a resolution that I've been holding on to for years to task: learning to play a m

Watch This Skydiver Fall 8,000 Feet Without a Parachute — and Survive

I'm not a skydiver, and I doubt I ever will be. But people who do parachute from thousands of feet up in the sky have my respect. It's scary stuff. You hear about skydivers falling to earth without a parachute to meet with terrible injuries or death. But this 51-year old dentist not only managed to survive his freefall to earth, he walked away with no more than a few bruises! Chalk it up to clean living, I suppose.

Dave Discovers that Rocker John Mellencamp Was a Country Music Artist 3 Decades Ahead of His Time

I was recently taking a cyber-stroll down memory lane, watching some of my favorite music videos on YouTube. I don't tend to dwell on how old I am too often, but when I do, I always seem to make interesting discoveries as the past relates to present day. This time, I discovered that rock singer John Mellencamp's 30-year old songs would make for great country music today.

This year's event will benefit the Ben Richey Boy's Ranch.
