Ben Davis

My name is Ben Davis.  I am the "Ben" portion of the "Ben & Patty Show".  Patty lets me do radio with her because some times I bring snacks and I can lift fairly heavy stuff.  My interests include golf, camping, bacon, and the female anatomy.   I have a beautiful wife and 2 great kids.  Lot’s of times they will even go out into public with me…as long as I pick up the tab.  Oh and did I mention that I can cook too!?  If I cook good stuff I’ve found that nice people will hang out with me.  Valuable information.  I can’t promise that I will cook you good stuff but I sure wish you’d hang out with me…and Patty…week day mornings from 6am to 10am on the MIX 97.3!
