  • Iowa, Italian Food, Blake and Luke!

    What a last week or two I've had. It's been filled with tears, laughter, music, family and delicious food. I had vacation scheduled for a few months to go to Burlington, Iowa for Steamboat Days. I have two sisters who live there, one Sicilian brother-in-law (for real, from Sicily), a niece and a nephew and this year Blake Shelton AND Luke Bryan would be there so I didn't want to miss it.

  • An update on our friend and coworker Dane Daniel

    This has been a tough, tough week here at KFDI. One thing I have always appreciated about KFDI is that I have always felt like I'm part of a family. My coworkers aren't just people I work with - they are all people I care very much about and I feel like we're all part of a family here. And when one person needs help, people here step up and do what they have to do.

  • Here you go Kenny Chesney Fans - it's his new video!

    Girls in skimpy bikinis and Kenny playing piano AND Kenny without his cowboy hat! It's all in his brand-spanking new video for "Come Over". Check it out!

  • Update on our friend and coworker, Dane Daniel

    You've heard Dane's voice on the air here on KFDI for years. He's our number one go-to guy when it comes to filling in a shift. As you might imagine, filling in can be a challenge as everyone's shows are a little different and Dane always fills in and makes it seem so effortless...and let me tell you, it's not.

  • Kellie Pickler at River Festival!

    Don't miss the KFDI Coleman Country Concert this Sunday night at the West Bank Stage. This year it's very different as it's a ticketed show...which means you need a ticket to get in! You can get them for $15 at all select-a-seat ticket outlets (and I'm assuming they'll be selling them at the gate too). David Nail hits the stage at 6:30 and Kellie goes on at 8:00.

  • Now THIS is a great proposal!

    Alright, I will admit it...this makes me cry! It makes me cry because I think it's so sweet and thoughtful. When you think about all of the planning that went into it as well as rehearsal AND he had so many friends and family members be part of the proposal - well, it just touches my heart. When you watch this, try to watch it in full screen because you can really see her reaction as the video goes along. So sweet. I think these two will have many happy years together. And after seeing this I think I'd like to meet them!

  • Has anyone seen this dog????

    First off, I don't know what I would do if Buddy was missing. I just couldn't imagine. Have you seen this girl???

  • KFDI Listeners Punk'd by Easton Corbin!

    First off: it wasn't my idea to take Easton Corbin out in the crowd waiting to get in to our Listener Appreciation Show - it was HIS idea!!!!

  • Need to exercise more??? Walk your dog!!!!!!

    If there is one thing I am good at - it's walking my dog. I think I love it as much as Buddy does. It's a great way for both of us to not only get exercise but it's a great time for me to clear my head AND a great time to work with Buddy on his training. (That's something we're always working on!) Dan Dillon sent me this article and I think it's very well written. And with the temperatures starting to heat up, please watch your dog carefully when you're walking in warmer temperatures. A heat stroke is VERY serious for you and for your dog. It's scary too, it happened to my dog years ago and it was only about 80 degrees that day - but it was very humid. Make sure they have plenty to drink too!

  • How you can help Wichitans AND their four-legged family members affected by the storms...

    So many people were affected by the recent storms and they have a long road ahead of them. Many of their pets are in need of temporary shelter along with food and kitty litter. Can you help them out by donating??? Here is the information from the Kansas Humane Society:

  • Miranda's performance of "The House That Built Me" Saturday night...

    I will have to say that being at Intrust Bank Arena while during a tornado warning was going on was something I certainly had nevered experienced. Usually you experience something like that with your family in a basement or someplace you've taken shelter but being someplace with thousands of other people was so surreal. I was impressed how calm everyone was. I was very lucky to be with a couple of my record guys who work with Miranda, Chris and Jerrod's labels so they took me back stage to watch the radar - I later realized we were in Jerrod Niemann's dressing room.

  • Have you seen this video???? It's so sweet!

    Have you watched this about Caine and his do-it-yourself video? It really touched my heart. They've raised a lot of money too to help put this incredible boy through college. It's about ten minutes long - but it's definitely worth taking ten minutes to watch it. It makes you feel like there are lots of good people in this world!

  • Dog-N-Jog for a good cause!!!

    Coming up Saturday, April 21st, don't miss Dog-N-Jog! Get out and enjoy a run with your dog AND help out the Kansas Humane Society.

  • Who knew Chris Young could breakdance????

    I sure didn't - but then we all have our secrets, don't we? Check his dancing skills out!

  • Soldiers + dogs = me crying...

    Everytime I see one of these videos with soldiers coming home and seeing their dogs, I always get all choked up. I like this video I saw from The Today Show because they talk to the couple and you can tell just how much they love their dog:

  • Check out Dustin Lynch!

    We are so excited to have Dustin Lynch on our Listener Appreciation Show line up. As the music director, I have the pleasure of meeting lots of new artists and when we saw Dustin on his bus I remember my boss, Beverlee, and I walking back into our building talking about how great he'd be on the Listener Appreciation Show! AND IT HAPPENED! I can't wait for you to see him too. He's a terrific songwriter. All the tickets are free, but you do need one so make sure to get one and join us April 28th at Charles Koch Arena.

  • Jon Pardi - one of the best Conference Room Concerts in a long time!

    One thing is for sure - you will never hear me complain about my job. I love music and one of my favorite parts of my job is hearing new music and meeting new artists. That's why I love having artists come by to perform for us. Recently, Jon Pardi stopped in and he blew me away. He's a great songwriter and (in my humble opinion) has everything in place to really make it in this business. Check out his Conference Room performance

  • Edens Edge and the Kansas Humane Society!!!

    I have to tell you - Edens Edge was absolutely fantastic last week at the Humane Society. If you ever get a chance to go see them, please do. You'll love them. Hannah has (I think) one of the best voices in country music today. And then add in Dean and Cherrill and they will blow you away too. The playing is exceptional, the harmonies are exceptional the chemistry between the three is fantastic.

  • Check out Carrie's new video!

    I know there are one zillion Carrie Underwood fans in Wichita. I might be overstating just a little - a half a zillion at least. Here's her brand new video for "Good Girl"!

  • This is almost a cute overload!!!!!!!!

    I'm beginning to think I like these two girls more than I like Ellen!!!! Ellen has really made them stars that's for sure. If you haven't heard of Sophia Rose and Gracie...watch this! They are quite good at interviewing and I could learn a thing or two from them. I mean, I've never even thought to ask someone if they get hungry when singing!!!
