Name: Dave Kreitler (nominated by his wife Kathy)
From: Sainte Genevieve, MO
Works at: Dave is the busy front-end-loader pushing up all the trucker’s loads of coal at Mississippi Lime Company. Dave's son, Zach, ran a front-end-loader at Mississippi Lime Company just like his dad, until his death in 2012. Dave works alone in the cab and rocks out to KSHE 95 every minute!
Dave has been listening to KSHE since 1967 because of his older brother, Pea Wee. Pea Wee is such devoted rocker that he has not cut his hair or shaved since the breakup of Led Zeppelin out of respect to John Bonham.
Dave loves every one of the KSHE DJs. He always says there is no other REAL ROCK radio station! Dave is always telling his wife about the rock artists and what the DJs were talking about.
Dave has been married to his wife Kathy for 29 years. Their 30-year anniversary is this September. They have a 25-year-old daughter Cassie who is currently in Italy traveling the world as an au pair. Dave’s wife Kathy says he is a wonderful father.
Dave and his childhood friend, Radical Randy, enjoy renovating Dave’s 1965 Chevy shortbed stepside pickup. The truck was given to Dave by his 24 year old son just 2 weeks before he died of cancer. It was intended to be a father son project. Dave and his son, Zach, shared everything including their love of KSHE 95, Rock-N-Roll, Chevy trucks and AC/DC! Dave is excited to bring the finished truck to this year’s KSHE 95 Car & Bike Show!
KSHE songs that get Dave through the day:
Ozzy Osbourne – See You on the Other Side & Crazy Train
AC/DC – Back in Black & Highway to Hell
Pink Floyd – Wish You Were Here
Led Zeppelin – Immigrant Song
Black Sabbath – Iron Man
