My name is Dave Spencer. I am a native of Owensboro, Kentucky. I've been in radio, all tolled, 34 years. I've been at WBKR 32 of them. Folklore has it that I stood in a field one day and they built the place around me. Lol. It's been a real pleasure watching not only country music but also the radio business, itself, evolve. Personally, I'm a huge college hoops fan, but I just miss sports in general. I need some baseball, right? I have a list of favorite movies and TV shows, both past and present, that's as long as my arms end-to-end and then yours, too. I like road trip travelling and spaghetti. More to come...
