Chris Carson

Longtime music fan, I didn't catch the radio bug till college up at Winona State University in Minnesota. After that, well as they say, the rest is history. Once radio gets in your system, there's nothing else you can think of doing. And I'm glad that road has landed me here in Cedar Rapids. I'm not a born Cedar Rapidian, but am a Chicago burbs implant. First radio gig was doing mornings on Soft Rock KREZ in Cape Girardeau, MO, so being back on the format is a welcome home. Since that start though, I've become a father of 2 (9 yr old daughter Mikayla and 5yr old son Nathan), and husband to an amazing wife, Lauren, for 12 years (my HS sweetheart). We also have a cat, although we're dog people at heart. Besides here and Cape Girardeau, I've also in small town Illinois, and have been on almost all formats, including Country, Classic Rock, "Oldies", and Pop stations, but like I said before, being on KDAT is like a return to my roots. I love being a part of closing out your workday and getting you home to relax and unwind.

Throwback Thursday: “Zoey 101″ Ruled Your World

Sometime between January of 2005 and May of 2008, there was one show that made everything else in the world go away.  It was your show.  A complete guilty pleasure that at first you didn't want to admit, but then you realized EVERYONE was watching it, so all was good... until the December 2007 announcement that would change everything.  Forget that for a moment, and lets go back.
