Kicks Morning Crew

Monday thru Saturday 5:00am to 10:00am

Start every work day off with the Kicks Morning Crew for a positive boost of energy and laughs.

SEAN LAMB was born and raised in Cambridge City, and grew up listening to Kicks 96 every morning on his route to school. His love for the local community and country music makes him a perfect fit for our Brewer Broadcasting team. Sean brings a sincerity to the airwaves that quickly makes you feel like you're listening to a long time friend. When Sean isn't on air as part of the Kicks Morning Crew, you can find him performing around the Midwest with his band.

DAVE PATRICK is a Greensburg native who's made country radio stops in Illinois, Missouri, and most recently Lafayette, IN. Dave is happily divorced and has no kids, but he does have a 14-year-old "puggle" - that's part pug, part beagle, all stomach - named Bonzi (pronounced Bonzee). When he's not in the studio, Dave loves live music, golf, and gadgets. Be sure to wake up with the NEW Kicks 96 Morning Crew, Sean & Dave!

Are You Ready for Some...Footgolf???

Has Dave found a new hobby? Maybe!   Over the weekend, Dave and his friend Heath played footgolf in Muncie. What exactly is footgolf? Golf you play with your feet. Obviously. Duh.   Okay, footgolf is golf that you play with just a soccer ball. Yes, that means the hole needs to be larger, but otherwise the game is played the same.  ...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #15/#16

I ate my pain this week.   I had an MRI on my bad shoulder a week ago Monday, and they needed to inject dye into the shoulder to get the best imaging. It was necessary, but that didn't make it any more comfortable. So between that and the stress of the results, I ate really poorly all week, and the scale noticed.   Not much else to say about...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #14

I think I'm referring to this week as "preparing for the worst".   I'm not expecting anything terrible to happen. I just know I didn't eat so well this week, and fell back into a couple bad habits (soda, late night eating, etc.), so I may be down a pound or so this week, but I better step up the exercise this weekend to balance things out. ...

Man Bowls Perfect Game with Dad's Ashes?

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #12 & #13

Slow and steady wins the race. It's a marathon, not a sprint.   Those two sayings don't mean I've started running. That won't happen. But they serve as good reminders to me that weight loss is gradual, not immediate. And it's weeks like this that I need those reminders the most.   My focus this week is portion control. Living...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #11

A friend of mine who works out religiously recently told me "if you're not losing (weight), you're gaining." Allow me to retort.    If you're not losing weight, you're gaining, or you're maintaining.  Making your weight a win/loss issue is one of the worst things you could do, in my opinion.   ...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #8, #9, and maybe #10?

Hey! Thought I forgot? Well, I kinda did.   This is what happens when you hurt your back and don't do much of anything for a couple weeks. Luckily, I behaved enough to not put weight back on, but obviously I didn't lose much either. All things considered, I'll take that as a win.   Back on the bike this week.   ...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #7

This week has been a big ol' pile of "fail", and I'll own it and start over.   I've had way too much fast food this week, and the scale had no problem letting me know that I've backtracked by 4 pounds. Nothing I can do about that but keep myself accountable here and on-air, and get back to work.   So, we start again, ju...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #6

Okay, okay, I know I skipped a week. That's life, isn't it?   The chaos of snow days, or snow week I guess, caught up with me and I didn't stay on top of my blog, or my eating/exercise habits. Luckily, I haven't paid for it on the scale just yet. In fact, I'm actually down a smidge from my last weigh-in!   Since I clearly sti...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #5

A week of no real change is better than a week of weight gain!   I maintained my weight from last week. I'll take that compared to putting pounds back on. Having said that, it is definitely time to get more serious about exercise. That's the thing on my list that I routinely put off, and if I'm going to start seeing results, I need to move exercise higher on...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #4

…and I'm (mostly) back on track!   After a week that I called a "minor setback", I'm slowly headed back in the right direction on my weight-loss journey.   The biggest change for me so far is my last meal of the day happens no later than 4pm. Getting up at 3:30am to do the morning show means going to bed (or trying to) f...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #3

Let's call this a minor setback.   My sleep schedule was all haywire this week thanks to some work stuff and a sick dog (the less detail there, the better) and I think that contributed to not only no weight loss this week, but a small gain.   I'm still working on my eating habits - portion control, endless snacking - and I feel like I...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #2

Week #2 brings a few behavior modifications to work on at work.   Since I wake up at 3:15 in the morning, I eat breakfast before 5am. And then the snacking starts. So first, I need to pick something a little healthier for breakfast. I'm going with either egg whites or oatmeal mixed with nonfat yogurt. And if I'm gonna snack, I've got some granola bars. Hopef...

Dave's Weight-Loss Blog #1

Ok, it's been about a week since I decided I'm gonna lose weight. Update time.   When I decided to make this whole thing public, I started out at 260.6 lbs.   My first step was to decide to start eating better. Maybe not healthier, but smaller portions. And for the most part, I've been behaving...except for all the stress-eating I di...
