Hi, It's Dave and Brandon here, keeping you informed, entertained and singing in your car every weekday afternoon from 3-7!
Hey, it's Dave Cruise. After an unsuccessful attempt at being a professional underwear model, I started my radio career in the cornfields of Iowa and dairy pastures of Wisconsin before moving East 10 years ago. I don't have any wives or kids (that I know of), but I do have a crazy dog named Indy. (He is NOT the dog pictured above, please don't tell him I'm cheating on him). I love working here at WDSD, after all, it's always nice to work for a place that's easy to spell :)
At the Stand Up to Cancer telethon on Friday, September 7, Taylor Swift performed a song dedicated to Ronan Thompson. Ronan Thompson was a toddler who was diagnosed with stage-four neuroblastoma, a cancerous tumor. He died of the condition in 2011. Maya Thompson, his mother, blogged throughout this difficult journey. One section in particular was called "How to Live Like a Rockstar." This caught the eye of Taylor Swift who then wrote a song entitled "Ronan." Thompson continues in her blog writing about the phone call from Taylor Swift. To Ronan she says, "She talked about how from reading this blog and following our story has inspired her and how amazing she thinks I am and all I am doing, to bring awareness to childhood cancer." Also, "How do you even find the words to thank somebody for something like this? I was a blubbering mess telling her how much this meant to me as she was helping me keep your memory alive and helping me to do amazing things. How if I had to pick my dream person to be tied to your name, it would be her because she is full of so much pure goodness, just like you." Maya Thompson said of Taylor's performance on September 7th "It's really amazing," "It was very emotional, a lot of tears."
