Products of a Deranged Imagination
Craig Montana was born and raised in Somerville, Texas. He studied Communication at Blinn College to become a DJ and showed up on KTEX/KWHI’s doorstep in 2002 and pestered them until they gave him a job.
He has always loved music and wanted to be a radio DJ ever since high school. You could say it was the first thing he wanted to do, if you don’t count wanting to be and astronaut or bull rider as a kid. He now works as the Program Director for KWHI and is an on-air personality.
He spends majority of his free time wrangling his two kids and hoping he is doing right by them, but when he isn’t doing that, he tries to get out and discover new beers. One time he was floating the Frio, hit some slick rocks, and fell out of his tube seven times. However, much to the amusement and amazement of the people sitting on the bank, he never spilt his beer once.
