I grew up on a small farm near Leota, Minnesota in the Southwest part of Minnesota. I began my radio career at KWYR in Winner, then on to KKAA in Aberdeen, KV91 in Volga/Brookings, a variety of stations in Rapid City and for the last more than a few years in Sioux Falls. I reached the top of the radio food chain that is KXRB in 2007 and haven't been kicked off yet! Join me weekdays from 3-6PM for our three hour afternoon energy drink 'The McDaniel Mess'. Prizes, fun and of course the greatest country music ever recorded! I have 2 kids and 5 Grandchildren. And yes, they all still like me fine.
