Dave Benson

Been doing this a long time. At KFR since '87. Had an awful lot of fun through the years here. This is one special radio station. Also, since coming to Kalamazoo, both my sons were born here, and are living here now. Michael works for the schools, and David is a freshman at Western. The love of my life is Kathy. She's my best friend and the hottest woman alive.
