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.
Favorite concerts you've attended?
Brian Setzer's Holiday show, Hall And Oates at Summerfest, and Muse come to mind. I also am up for any outdoor concerts/festivals.
Favorite 105.5 Triple M artists?
Ellie Goulding, Van Morrison, and Stevie Ray Vaughn to name a few. My tastes are kind of all over the place!
CD, mp3 or vinyl?
Vinyl. Hands down.
Favorite thing to do in Madison?
Exploring! This city is so eclectic and ever-changing, it's easy to venture out on any given day and find something amazing!

#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.
The same guy who sang "Good Morning Starshine" had a number 2 hit with the song "Jean" in 1969. The song came from a movie called The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie about a headstrong teacher in a private school.
The song really has nothing to do with any...
LeBlanc and Carr were Lenny LeBlanc and Pete Carr, two Muscle Shoals studio musicians who hit the top 40 in 1978 with their hit "Falling." It made it up to #13 on the charts and was perfect for clumsy teenage slow dancing!
Musically, these guys were...
Before Friday, my only experience with a haunted house, commercial or otherwise, was at the Recreation Department in Stevens Point when I was a teenager, and as I remember I was FREAKED out.
So I was a little nervous when Jonathan and I were asked to...
A lot of people seemed to have fond memories of this questionable song from 1986. "Who's Johnny" was the first solo hit for the guy named El DeBarge, and it went to number 3 on the charts.
Some of you might remember it from the movie "Short...
The new list of nomines for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is out, and finally they give a nod to Stevie Ray Vaughan.
The Rock Hall has passed Stevie by for the more than ten years that he's been eligible, causing me and other blues fans much...
I had the opportunity to go see "Once" at Overture Hall last night, and I guess the two word summary of my review could be "weirdly awesome."
The story isn't too complicated, which is good because I sometimes had a hard time understanding the...
It seems Kitty was all alone in the Canadian wilderness with her love for the 1978 hit "I Will Still Love You" by Stonebolt.
It only made it up to #29, so it seems a lot of folks didn't have the fond memories of the song that she did. With amazing...
