4pm – 8pm on AM 800
I was born and raised on the South side of Chicago, where I grew up a Cubs fan among all the White Sox fans. For years, I waited…..and waited…finally in 2016 it happened! I guess I’m good for another 108 years now. I knew that radio was in my blood from the time I was 12. I got my first job at a radio station in Chicago at age 15. Since then I’ve worked in some great cities, playing Country music. Chicago, Baltimore, Las Vegas, Dallas and now right here. When I’m not on the air you can usually find me hanging with the animals in my life. My girlfriend and I have two dogs and a cat named Heisen. (all rescue animals). Yes, we are big fans of the show Breaking Bad. Another thing we enjoy is brewery tours. Every place we travel, we try to hit the local breweries. Size doesn’t matter. From the big guys in St. Louis, Milwaukee and Boston, to the craft breweries from Dallas to Niagara Falls Canada. Everyone has a great time on brewery tours! Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to have met so many great Country music artists. They have all had some great stories to tell. Now, I’m lucky to play them all for you every day.
Overnights Midnight-5am on AM 800
I caught the radio bug at a young age. As a teenager, I got to work at my high school radio station. FYI, I’m slightly taller than Kenny Chesney and about a foot shorter than Trace Adkins. In 1984 I married my high school sweetheart. I have 3 daughters, 3 sons-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. When I'm not on the air playing my favorite music (country) or hanging out with my family, I enjoy working outside. I love getting on my tractor and mowing. It is like therapy to me! I am also actively involved in my church, and serve on the board of an inner city community center.
Mornings 7-9am on AM 800
Rick has always been a morning person so this job is perfect for him. In fact, he credits it with keeping his marriage together. His wife says if he was at the breakfast table everyday she’d been out of there long ago. His daughters will second that. The boy does like to talk! He started waking people up on the radio years ago when he realized that he didn’t have to sweat. And now ‘Morgan in the Morning’ enjoys misbehaving with his listeners on a daily basis. “The free coffee and internet ain’t bad either," he says.
9am - 2pm on AM 800
I’ve been playing radio for nearly thirty years. I say that every time I write about my career choice because I think it matters. I love what I do. I like being in my studio with the music playing, knowing others working for a living are counting on me to play their favorite tunes. We get through the day together. If I weren’t in radio, I’d be working with animals. Which, to be honest with you, is a lot like working in radio. I’m a Netflix junkie but I also love to watch the old westerns, even the ones in black and white. I can easily spend a Saturday watching Laramie, Have Gun Will Travel, The Rifleman and more. I also love the Marvel and DC Comic Shows. I appreciate when you listen and I’ll take you whenever I can get you. Always remember that when it comes to the day to day, music always
makes it better.

Country Archives Weekdays 9:33am
A fixture at WDUX since 1980, the Captain started as a Disc Jockey at a time when DJs actually spun records. He has since moved into the front office writing and producing commercials, but continues to enjoy his time on the radio hosting Swap Shop and sharing interesting tidbits on the Country Archives.
7pm -12am on AM 800
I grew up listening to WLS in Chicago and knew from a young age I wanted to be on the radio. I took a detour when I joined the Army and served in the 1st Infantry Division and after basic training and AIT, I spent my entire tour overseas. Contrary to what you may hear, I did not drive a tank for the Salvation Army. I love country music, it has been my life for the past fifteen years. On my IPAD, I listen to Led Zeppelin, Waylon, Johnny Cash, Elvis, Deep Purple, Donna Summer, The Who, Willie Nelson, Toby Keith, and K C and the Sunshine Band. Don't hate me because I love Disco music! Movies I have on my IPAD include Die Hard, Independence Day, Die Harder, The Big Red One (imagine that), Die Hard with a Vengeance, The Avengers, A good Day to Die Hard.... well... you get the idea.
