5:00amMonday

Starting Armchair Quarterback for the Minnesota Vikings Tony brings the party, complete with tortilla chips and salsa. Wait til you hear the Dad jokes. They might not be all that good, but there will be a lot of them. Tony grew up right here in beautiful Bluff Country. Tony hails from Houston, Mn... so naturally, he's a a die-hard Vikings, Gophers and Houston Hurricanes fan! He's also a bit of a TV junkie and movie buff making him a vast wasteland of useless pop culture references. Just ask him!

6:00pmMonday

Hey, it’s Phil Tripper, your friendly neighborhood nighttime guy. I was born and raised just across the river from the studios in La Crescent, MN. Some of my first memories of radio were the throwback sounds of The Eagle KQEG and Keith and Sam in the morning on Z93. My first deep dives into country music probably came from lazy afternoons watching CMT in the 90s and backwoods bonfire parties in the wilds of southeast Minnesota as a teenager. You’ve got Tripper questions, I’ve got Tripper answers: Favorite food: Pizza…all of it. Anytime, anywhere, any style Favorite game: Trivial Pursuit – mix n match editions style with house rules Favorite movie: There Will Be Blood. Daniel Day-Lewis is the Michael Jordan of actors Beatles or Stones?: Beatles all day Waylon or Willie?: Waylon Scotch or Bourbon? Bourbon. ‘Murica! Best Season? Fall. For the light jacket styles and the candles Funniest Person on the Planet? Larry David as long as he is alive. Spirit Animal: Probably Marc Maron Worst Interview: That time I accidentally harassed Lauren Alaina about a flubbed National Anthem performance. Sorry Lauren! Best Concert Memory: Too many…but kissing a stranger at a LaCrosse Center Motley Crue concert in 2005 felt appropriate for the vibe. When in Rome, ya know? Hobbies: Collecting Vinyl records and figuring out how I’ll eat because I spent all my money on records. Also Bourbon. Hidden talent: Talking on the radio. Get it… the talent is still “hidden” Dog or cat: I’ve entered the realm of Cat Dad. Eddi and Greg are my cat bros. (they are actual blood brothers) Guilty pleasure: Ken Burns documentaries on PBS and Antiques Road show If your life had narration, who would be the voice: Macho Man Randy Savage... OOooohh YEEEEAaaaahhh! Hot Take? Comic book universe movies are ruining everything. Also, everyone likes Bro Country after 5 Busch Lattes

Tom is no stranger to Coulee Region radio, but KQ98 is special because his first radio job was also a country station. Well, country and sometimes polkas. He doesn’t miss the polkas. He has a habit of adopting unwanted things with paws or wheels, including a classic car and vintage motorcycle that are constant sources of skinned knuckles.
