On The Air
Mike Couchman – Morning Show
Mike Couchman has lived in 18 different places so far. That’s not even including his Witness Protection cover story. The journey got really fun when Mike successfully ran away from home in 4th grade; he tasted freedom for all of four hours before his Grandfather found him in the garage. Mike packed a portable TV and Oatmeal Cream Pies for his trip. Because, really, what else does a 9-year-old boy need to survive on his own? These days, Mike stays close to his home with his wife, Jennifer, and their three boys (Hezekiah, Ephraim, and Ezra). Plus their dog, Rose Tyler (named after a Doctor Who character. Doctor Who is a British TV show you’re not nerdy enough to love). Mike devoted his life to Jesus Christ while skipping school in 6th grade, again shortly after graduating high school, and many other times since then. When Mike isn’t yearning to be your DJ, he makes remixes, reads, and craves unity among all of God’s people. Follow Mike on Twitter and Facebook.

Brant Hansen – Afternoons
Brant Hansen is a toast-obsessed nerd who spends his free time looking inappropriately intense. He can’t help it. He’s also a husband and dad, and he’s won multiple awards for his radio hosting skills and is typing all of this himself, and putting it in third-person in hopes that it seems more impressive that way, almost like he’s so important that other people type his “about” page. But he’s not. Brant is a Christian with a distaste for religion. He’s under the impression there was no religion in Eden, and there won’t be any in Heaven, either. Thank God. Politically, he’s pro-life, pro-science, and is allergic to political elitism, which means he’s waaay out of step with the reigning American monoculture. Contact Brant here.
Kanada DeBurr – Late Nights
Kanada is the one you’ve mistaken for for one of the kids. She loves (in no particular order) the Cosby show, laughing until her stomach hurts, and spending time with her family.
