My name is Dave Spencer. I've been in radio, all tolled, 35 years this summer. It's been fascinating watching the business evolve. And in terms of technology, few industries have evolved more regularly than media. I love getting out on the road--even for small drives in the country. I like exploring. I like letting good music put me to sleep at night. I like spaghetti and, for pure decadence, biscuits and gravy. My favorite things. I like Ozark, bodies of water, and college basketball. And not necessarily in that order. I also really like a guy named Tom. Peace.
