Hey, I’m Tom Drake. I’ve been working in radio since 2010 in the Dubuque Market where I’ve been keeping people company in the afternoons and taking care of the production department. I went to college at Wartburg where I played Soccer and had a scholarship to sing. In fact, I spent the early part of my 20’s doing the rock band thing and got to open for some pretty awesome bands along the way (Caroline's Spine, Saving Abel, Sevendust, Buckcherry, and many others). I’ve slowed down in that regard, but life can still get pretty crazy most days, and I love it. I have a beautiful wife at home and 3 kids. We stay pretty active with hiking, swimming, and the kid’s different sports, but we love movie and pizza nights every Friday! I’m an avid soccer fan (Glory, Glory Man United), but I love my Denver Broncos and White Sox just as much!
