It’s so great to be back home in Missouri! I’m a Missouri girl, born and bred. I grew up on a cattle farm, and went to school at Missouri State University. (Back then, we called it SMS). I have two fur-babies. Tink is my Great Dane, and Elwood is my Doberman. I’m the youngest in a large farm family, and my mom still refers to me as her “baby”. Ha! I enjoy riding my bike on all the beautiful greenways in Springfield. The Katy Trail rocks! My dogs love Cruse Dog Park! I love the friendly folks of southwest Missouri. There are no better people. I hope you’ll join me every weekday morning. Thank you for listening!
After attending Evangel University, I have definitely found a home here in SW Missouri. My wife is a very gifted mental health therapist, and I like to think of myself as her most gifted client. We were married on Christmas Eve, 2011, and with every day that goes by, I realize just how amazing a Christmas gift she truly was. We do not have any kids (yet) but we do have a tiny little mutt named, Sophie, who you’ll probably stumble upon if you ever walk the path around the lake at Nathaniel Green Park. Most weekends you’ll find us either grocery shopping, golfing or at our church. And of course, every weekday morning, I hope you’ll join Cheryl and I for a friendly wake up call, on 105.9 KGBX.

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn't become widely known until 3 years later. This is a speech that left me with a sea of emotions.
At first, I thought "this is lame." About two minutes in, I knew that David Foster Wallace was talking to ME. "Hey Cheryl, YOU, the one always looking at your watch, with no patience for anything."
Six minutes in, I was in tears, partially out of guilt and partially out of recognition, wonder and understanding.
At the end, I felt wiser and grateful. I immediately Googled David Foster Wallace. Who is he? Why haven't I heard of him? It was then that I shed even more tears, finding out that the man who must have inspired thousands and thousands of people once this video went viral, never knew because he committed suicide long before his words became a Youtube sensation.
Now, it's your turn to watch. I'd love to know if you thought it was lame, or if it touched you in some way. -- Cheryl Kaye
