Weeknights 7PM-10PM; Saturdays 3PM-6PM
Hi! I’m Kevin Davis! I got my start in the radio business in the Nashville, Tennessee area back in 1985. I eventually worked my way up to Program Director in 1992. I zig zagged across the U.S. map a few times managing various secular radio stations before I eventually settled in Gainesville in 2002 to be Program Director of a Classic Rock station. Along the way, God opened the door for me to become involved in ministry. In 2004, I began serving as bass guitarist in the worship band at Ocala’s “Church @ The Springs”. In August 2013, I came on board with The Pulse as Program Director.
1. Tell us about your family?
My wife Christy is a super hero. We married in 2008; I’m not sure how I survived all those years without her! The Lord led us to a pathway of adoption. Both adopted at birth, Addison came into our lives in 2011; Alexia in 2013.
2. Any hobbies?
The 3-B’s: Baseball, beach and bass guitar. I’m a longtime fan of baseball. I’ve scratched off one item from my bucket list: to be a Major League Baseball stadium PA Announcer. For spring training 2011, I worked for the Detroit Tigers in that capacity during all of their ‘home’ games in Lakeland. Always in search of the perfect beach sunset, my wife and I have traveled to several Caribbean Islands; we’ve been to Aruba 4 times! And of course being a music lover, I thoroughly enjoy playing and collecting bass guitars. One of my biggest thrills is playing one of my 5 string basses on stage at church (with their massive subwoofers) in the worship band. I guess I can now add a 4th “B” in there: my Babies. Now that I have 2 beautiful baby girls, all of my hobbies have pretty much gladly taken a backset seat to spending time with my precious daughters.
3. Any pets?
Sweet Pea, our adorable Pug!
4. Favorite foods?
BBQ, Mexican and when I’m in a hurry, peanut butter on the end of a spoon will simply do.
5. Favorite bible verse?
In the mid-2000’s when God was working through me by shifting my focus from the pursuit of worldly matters (such as money and career) to matters that glorified Him, this verse socked me right in the jaw: “What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.”- Philippians 3:8. The story of Paul is a miracle of Grace. Paul sets aside all stubbornness and truly surrenders to The Lord. Christ uses him to be a world changer.
6. What artist makes you turn it up?
Tie between The Afters and Newsboys.
