104.5 KDAT shares the 4th floor of the Plaza 425 building in downtown Cedar Rapids with our Townsquare Media sister stations 98.1 KHAK, i1071 and 94.1 KRNA.

I've been a fixture, happily, for 16 years here at KDAT. With all these stations in one place, it's not uncommon for any of us to pull double duty. Last weekend, I branched out and spent a little time with another member of the family. I went on the air Sunday morning on KRNA from 7-11 am, right before my long but fun Sunday shift at KDAT. It was pretty exciting.

I love many genres of music, a key for attempting to succeed in a radio career. With four stations in our group there's a lot to choose from, including the recently resurrected classic rock format at KRNA, of which I am also a big fan. It was fun trying out a different style on the air, stretching my radio chops and playing some good old fashioned classic rock for a few hours. That format even includes the "edgier" side of some of the artists you can hear on KDAT, like REO Speedwagon, Heart, Journey and more, so give it a try.

If my boss on both stations, Mike Ferris, likes how it went, you'll hopefully be hearing me in both places more often.
