Penrod 11pm to 5am Mon-Fri

Sometimes it’s hard to talk with this silver spoon in my mouth, oh I’m sorry that’s a hot wing. I really like hot wings. If I am not on the radio I enjoy fishing, fishing, and oh yeah, fishing. I enjoy going to concerts and comedy clubs. I have been known to sing with “the band” and do some stand-up. I enjoy long buffets and all-you-can-eat joints. Yes, I have a weird sense of humor and enjoy joking about everything including myself. If I can’t laugh at myself then there must be duct-tape on my face.
