You hear them in the morning on your way to work, now get to know the guys behind the microphone, and find out if they're just as weird as they seem.

Big D started in radio at the age of 14 years old at a 1000-watt Christian radio station in Cookeville, Tenn. By the age of 17, he hosted his first talk show, which led him to doing mornings on an oldies station in the same city.

He fell in love with the country lifestyle at the age of 19 hosting a country morning show in Montana

He met his wife Kathy in Billings. and together they have two sons, Zak and Gunner.

Something that you may be surprised to learn; In high school he was an Exchange Student, and spent time in Russia...before the wall fell....when it was still Communist! Talk about crazy! Seeing that, and the way that the poor people of Russia lived and suffered under that regime really helps solidify his love for the Good 'Ol USA.

He is also an Instrument Rated Private Airplane Pilot, and a big aviation buff, you can usually find him tinkering around his hangar messing with the plane when he's not on the radio.

Bubba was also 14 when he got started in radio in his hometown of Houma Louisiana. He is a self described nomad and used radio to travel the world and worked at stations in places such as Guam and Tokyo.

Bubba met his wife Stacey in Baton Rouge and they have three children, Olivia, Ava, and Frank.

He is also a huge Frank Sinatra fan and a self professed "car-nerd" who uses free time to drive anything he can get behind the wheel of. And, just like Big D...he is also a Private Airplane Pilot.
