I've been in Bozeman for five years now, and I love it! I'm lucky to live in a great town, in a great state, with such a loving and giving group of listeners who we affectionately call the XL Nation. We cannot thank you enough for voting “Dave & Ally in the Morning” your favorite morning show in the Bozeman's Choice Awards, and also making us your favorite radio Djs in the Best of Bozeman Awards on BoZone.com. Away from radio I'm an avid history buff. I often give tours of the Little Bighorn Battlefield and other historical sites. I also like to write and my most recent book "Crazy Horse: Where My Dead Lie Buried," is now available on Amazon. I'd love to hear from you about the book, the show, or anything else that strikes your fancy. You can reach out to me at Dave@XLCountry.com.
