My name is Ben Davis. I am the "Ben" portion of the "Ben & Patty Show". Patty lets me do radio with her because sometimes 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!
