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.

Wade Bowen “The Given” CD Review

It's hard to think of an accomplishment Wade Bowen has not achieved on the Texas music scene. He's won the awards, sells out his shows, plays all the big festivals, and has recorded a "Live at Billy Bob's Texas" CD. It's been a road of steady progress since the beginning. Like with any musician, this requires some luck, but credit Bowen's work ethic, talent, and the fact that he is a really good guy for most of his career success.

Now, with the release of "The Given", Bowen has made the next logical step in growing his music and signed with Nashville label BNA.

Greg Bates hit it big with his song "Did It For the Girl" when he was only 24 years old.

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.
