Although she swears she is not a morning person, Kitty has been helping you wake up for nearly two decades on 105.5 Triple M. Putting to good use everything she learned in journalism classes at UW-Stevens Point, Kitty likes to delve into the important issues, like stuff spilled on the highway and rampaging animal stories.
#1 most asked question by fans is...What time do you have to get up every morning? (Around 4 or 4:30)
Three songs that sound great together... Bluebird by the Buffalo Springfield, Blue by the Jayhawks, For You Blue, by the Beatles
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... Beer, preferably a local microbrew that's not overly hoppy.
Favorite restaurant in Madison...It's a tie between Sprecher's and Old Chicago. It probably has a lot to do with the beer selection.
I'm famous for...my ability to recite the entire "Calgon, ancient Chinese secret" commercial from memory.
#1 question most asked by fans: Wait...I have fans? Are you Jonathan Suttin? or What happened?
Three songs that sound great together: Well, when I DJ...I've learned that if you play the "Chicken Dance," "Hokey Pokey," and "Beer Barrel Polka" at a wedding in Wisconsin, almost everybody gets up to dance (everybody else is too busy drinking).
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer: Mixer -- Old Fashions!
Favorite restaurant: Regionally? Probably Freshii's or the Green Vine (in Baraboo), although back in NY I loved Tim Horton's
I'm famous for: I have one of the documented cases of "Foot in Mouth" disease. Doctors said that I wouldn't make sense past the age of 5. The fact that I work in radio is a miracle really...everyday is a challenge. :)
#1 most asked question by fans is... Oh, so that’s what you look like? But, when fans say that, does it mean it’s a good or a bad thing they’re asking me?
Three songs that sound great together...You mean all three songs played at the very same time? Probably not, so how about, Stephen Stills, Love the One You’re With. Eleanor Rigby, The Beatles. And, The Moody Blues, Nights in White Satin.
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... All of the above!
Favorite restaurant in Madison...Years ago, it was: THE ABBEY. That bring back any memories, a restaurant in an old church as I never lost my religion because the food was sooo good. Now: La Baguette here on the west side of Madison, right by Triple M. I like it because it is simple and nice and the food reminds me of when I lived in all places, France.
I'm famous for...being famous by not doing anything famous.
#1 most asked question by fans is… What times are you normally on? Whoa! How do you do it? You must have to drink a lot of coffee to stay up all night.
Three songs that sound great together... Eleanor, Put Your Boots On – Franz Ferdinant, Fairies Wears Boots – Black Sabbath, and These Boots Are Made for Walkin’.
At the bar: beer, wine or mixer?... Yes please.
Favorite restaurant in Madison... Madison restaurants….! So many that are incredible. I’d have to say right now, Brasserie V on Monroe Street.
I'm famous for... Hand stands, my stainless steel .22 semi-automatic and making raspberry jam.
Early Mornings 12a-5a
#1 most asked question by fans is... Can you get me tickets?
Three songs that sound great together... This is totally unfair to ask a music person. Even more unfair to ask a radio person. May as well ask which three children are my favorite - but to be fair, I have three children, so that works out all right.
At the bar; beer, wine or mixer?... I usually order something that makes the bartender scramble for their mixology books. I like to experiment.
Favorite restaurant... I love to cook. My husband is a bona fide Southern born cook and our son is a culinary student. I'm going with "Our Home!"
Sergio Mendes was a Brazilian bandleader who had some hits in the 1960's, and came back with a vengeance in 1983. "Never Gonna Let You Go" made it to number 4 on the pop chart and was #1 for three weeks on the adult contemporary chart.
Not a lot...

Fall is here along with cooler crisper temperatures....but we tried to rekindle some of the summer glow with "Rub it in" by Billy "Crash" Craddock.
It was a number one country song and number 16 pop song back in 1974.
At first some...

Some people seemed quite surprised that the song "Jungle Love" by Morris Day and the Time made it onto the World's Worst iPod.

I'm pretty sure the website change.org wasn't created for things like this. There's a petition to ask the National Football League to have the Grateful Dead play the Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
Now I get their reasoning--the Dead...
