Dake Aiken

Written by Biggie

Dave Aiken was born in the wilds of Appalachia on a hot summer night. His Daddy had just got done making the shine for the day and was looking to relax a little when suddenly Dave's Mom gave out a wild yell from the kitchen and there on the floor lay a baby Dave. See, Dave's Mom didn't know she was pregnant - she thought she had just eaten some bad wild boar a few months before and was still suffering the consequences.  Dave had a fairly normal childhood for a mountain boy. He spent his days swimming in creeks, skipping rocks, and scamming the tourists by selling them fake Indian moccasins that his Nana made. When Dave was 16 the family got their first radio and it became his first real love. When Dave was 18 he announced to his family that he had gotten into the college of his choice - The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. His family immediately disowned him and said they didn't have any place for fancy learnin' boys in the family. So Dave bravely hitchhiked down the mountain and all the way to Greensboro where he started his College career. Dave had many firsts in college - he lost his virginity, he didn't have to kill his own dinner, indoor plumbing, etc. But the biggest thing to happen was Dave watched his first television. Just like a few years before, Dave's life was changed. He knew he wanted to be inside that moving picture box... The only problem was Dave was short and portly and there was no chance in hell he would ever be a Hollywood star, so he decided the only way to be in the moving picture box was to become a TV Weatherman. Sure, it wasn't the most glamorous job, but Dave didn't care - he just wanted to be inside the TV. He changed his college major to meteorology and graduated with honors just a few years later. After college Dave immediately got a job as a weatherman right in Greensboro, NC where he went to college! He worked there for several years until the lawsuit.... And legally that's all I can say about that. BUT because of that lawsuit, Dave got to make a career change into his first love... Radio!  Sure, the pay isn't as good and the quality of ladies who want to sleep with you is poor, buuuut he got to play whatever music he wanted. What a great gig! Dave has been working in radio for several years now and will probably do this till he dies...Now here are a few other fun facts about Dave... He loves Jimmy Buffet (there is a pending restraining order); he joined the 2 Guys Named Chris Show after saving Chris Kelly's life in a near fatal chicken bone choking episode; if you ask him his opinion of something he will never ever ever give it to you; he loves football more than he loves anything else; he likes beer and women and.. well... beer and women; he once punched a belligerent coked-up Ed McMahon in the face; he can do more with a hot dog and a corn tortilla than Guy Fieri can do with a whole kitchen full of food; he will recite lines from "Jaws" with you for hours; and finally, he has slept with your mother.
