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!
