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.

What I Remember About 9/11, And How That Day Changed Me

After I was asked to give a summary of what September 11th, 2001 was like for me, I thought I'd share my thoughts and be done with it. But that wasn't the case at all. That day is - as for many of you - one I will never forget, and a day that brought out emotions in me that I will take with me forever. It also gave me a different way of looking at life. I've shared a couple of these stories before, but this is the first time I've told several of these accounts.
