Hello Iowa!

My name is Gabe Glidden, no relation to the paint company sadly, and I can't wait to get started hanging out with you mornings on K92.3. I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and I know more than I'd like to admit about the misery of cheering for those sports teams. I have worked radio broadcasting for the past 8 years, all of that time spent in southeastern Minnesota. I'm taking on this new adventure at Townsquare Media with a new fiance and we plan to get married in September of 2023. We even just purchased our first house!

Before the age of 10, I can remember being interested in radio. How it worked and how to get started. My dad, older brother, and I would drive home from our hunting trips and listen to talk radio for hours. I'd love to hear people call into the station and listen to the broadcasters joke around with each other. It just seemed like such a fun job and thankfully I've been able to make a career out of it. I graduated from Brown College with a degree in Radio Broadcasting in 2012, and haven't looked back since. 

I started playing guitar around 11 years old, which drew me to artists like Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, and Vince Gill. One thing they all have in common is they're incredible guitar players. I can't believe none of them have asked me to play backup in their bands yet... The first-ever concert I attended was a Keith Urban show and I became mesmerized by live music. The noise, the crowd singing along, all of it blew me away.

This will be my first time living out of my home state but I can already tell Casey's pizza will be heavily included in my diet. I can't wait to get to know you and hopefully show you my assorted collection of flannel shirts. I know it's kind of a weird obsession but I can't wait to tell you about it.

LEGO City Home

This home is over 100 years old and has some real fun on the inside. What goofy thing would you put in your home?

Small Town Iowa: Bily Clocks Museum in Spillville - Photo Gallery

No photo can do "justice" to show the true beauty of these historic clocks. You have to see them in person to fully appreciate the intricacy of each piece, along with their working and moving parts. Plus, the relaxing sounds of the chimes going off or music playing. Before you make the trip to Spillville to see them for yourself, let's take a virtual trip and see the highlights of Frank and Joseph Bily's work. (Photos taken by permission)
