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.

5 Things That I Believe Will Be Gone In 20 Years

When I was born, society hadn't even dreamed about how important computers would be in our everyday lives. But in less than twenty years, they have become something that most of us can't live without. At the same time, there are several things that have disappeared from existence in that same time frame. For instance, VHS tapes. How about toys in cereal boxes? And when is the last time you made a collect call? These are just a few examples. This makes me think and wonder what part of our everyday lives will no longer be around in 20 years. I've compiled a list of my Top 5. Let me know if you disagree, or if I missed any.

Dave Turns April 15th From “Tax Day” To “National Procrastinator’s Day”

As Americans, April 15th has been embedded in our minds as the dreaded "Tax Day", where everybody who owes the I.R.S. had better pay up, or else! I want to change the way we view this day, so instead of going through the motions of being forced to pay my hard-earned money to Uncle Sam, I am going to celebrate "Procrastinator's Day"!

Dave Chooses to Look at Paying Taxes as a Good Thing

For several years now, I've found reasons to use a motto loosely borrowed from comedian Bill Hicks. The basic intention of this brief saying helps me find a fresh perspective on life's situations that may seem negative at first glance. The motto? "It's all in how you look at it.". Tax season reminds me of this saying.

Whataburger’s New Jalapeno Cheddar Biscuit Gets a Taste Test From Dave, Shay and Chaz

I know a lot of people who flip out every time McDonald's brings back the McRib. I've got friends who can't get through a week without a trip to Sonic for their addictive tots. For me, I'm always searching for something different. And that's what I hoped to find when I heard about a brand new breakfast sandwich at Whataburger.

Autism Awareness Card Gives an Eye-Opening Experience

I was shopping with my son at the Mall of Abilene a while back. Near the main entrance, we saw a small, maybe 5 year old boy, having what appeared to be an epic meltdown. With a mom holding the boy by the hand, the child screaming and trying his best to wiggle away to freedom. We’ve all witnessed this situation, right?

Dave Meets John – Abilene Subway Employee and Classical Guitarist

I was out with my son, enjoying a sandwich at Subway at the end of their Saturday lunch rush. As we were polishing off our $5 footlong and getting ready to hit the road, I couldn't help but notice a small orange amp at one of the tables behind me. So, we stuck around to find out what the heck was going on.

Dave Puts Shay’s iPhone Speaker Made From a Toilet Paper Roll to a Product Challenge

I saw Shay's video about how to make an iPhone speaker out of a roll of toilet paper, and how you can amplify your music with a couple of scores from an X-ACTO knife. I'm a conspiracy theorist by nature, so I decided to put Shay's toilet paper speaker to the test.
