Off Air With Tony Tone: When duty calls

Last Friday morning, the Muscatine Fire Department were guests with my co-worker, Morning Joel, for his Moving Forward segment on KWPC AM 860 FM 95.1. We have a great relationship with both the fire and police department, so any opportunity we get to have folks from there on the air, we take. That morning, Joel was joined by a few guys who arrived to the radio station in one of the MFD’s ambulances. I was sitting in my studio across the hall listening to their conversation when a call came in, and two of the firefighters had to hustle...

The first mow is the greenest

Hello, spring weather! Aside from a few April showers, it would appear, friends, that spring has officially arrived here in Muscatine! That’s exciting news for many reasons, specifically the front and back yard at my house. As of this writing, I have not yet mowed the grass at my house.

Off Air With Tony Tone: To my friend, Hayden

I have learned so much about friendship over the past few years since moving to Muscatine. I know it gets said a lot, but the people in this community are good. With the job that I have, I get to experience this firsthand on a semi-regular basis. We support each other in times of need and are there to lend a hand. On March 24, I had to drop something off for Cory and Kendra Daufeldt at their home here in Muscatine. Upon arriving I was greeted by their son, Hayden, who was sitting on the couch. It may...
