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.

Is This Mountain Dew Ad the Most Racist Commercial Ever?

I came across this story from ABC News. It's about a television commercial for Mountain Dew, and it's being called by critics as 'the most racist commercial ever'. Before I watched the video, my first thought was whoever gave it such a title must be overreacting. I'm certain that Pepsico (the makers of Mountain Dew) has people who look closely at the commercials they put on the air, and would pull the plug on such an ad.

In a fundraiser coming up May 18th at Trent ISD, 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Dr. Hannah Kinney at Boston Children's Hospital. Dr. Kinney's research is helping lead the way in finding a reason and a cure for SIDS.

Iron Man 3 Has No Chance of Living Up to Its Hype, According to Dave

My son Nathan has been excited about Iron Man 3 for weeks. He's been watching the previous two movies over and over again on DVD in preparation. He stops everything he's doing to closely study the trailer for the new superhero movie. Needless to say, he's going to see the Robert Downey, Jr. flick on opening weekend. But, with all the hype and all the exposure this movie is getting, will it live up to its billing? I'd doubt it.

Dave Explains His Appreciation of Secondhand Shirts

As the sixth of seven kids in my family, I rarely wore new clothes. In fact, I can only remember ever having a few new items of clothing every school year, and the rest were "hand-me-downs" passed on to me from my older brothers (and sisters, I'm sure). I'm not complaining, but growing up, I always dreamed of the day I would have a closet full of brand new clothes. But now as an adult, I've come to appreciate going shopping at a thrift store and finding a great shirt for next to nothing.
