Hi, I'm Dave Marsh-Program Director and host of "The Ride" home weekday afternoons 3-7p on 104.5 WFMB.
Here's just a little bit about me. I grew up in a tiny little town in Central Wisconsin. Got my degree in Broadcast Journalism at UW-River Falls and have been doing radio in some way shape or form since 1977. I've lived in a variety of locations including Colorado Springs, Lincoln, NE and near Madison, WI. I love radio as a career and the contact we have with the artists. Hobbies include: Fishing, motorcycles (when I can borrow one), outdoor activities, gardening, landscaping and yard work. Musical choices: Everything from George Strait to Pink Floyd. Love most kinds of music. TV: 24, Fringe, House, SciFi-Star Trek and a steady diet of NatGeo, History, Discovery and Science Channels Sports: Packers, Brewers, Bucks--but I have a healthy respect for the Cardinals
I love hearing from our wayward listeners on line at wfmb.com. Shoot me an email and let me know where you are.
