Dance Revolution

4163847179_800bf69d01_oSchool dances used to be some of the most-anticipated events of the year. But it seems they’re becoming a thing of the past. Many schools have started canceling dances due to lack of attendance. According to one school administrator in New York, students don’t go to dances anymore because they’d rather stay home and interact with one another via text, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat. Plus, while teens of the early 2000s were limited to the family computer if they wanted to chat with their friends online, these days most kids have their own laptops and smartphones, which means they can do so from the privacy of their rooms. School officials say that while dances used to be a prime opportunity for kids to socialize, technology has changed all that.   Fortunately- or unfortunately, depending on how popular you are- most schools still at least hold an annual prom.

Brent Lee

QMIX Afternoon Guy, Brent Lee, grew up near Greensburg -- where he started working on the radio at age 14. Growing up as an only child may have been lonely at times, but it led him to be the creative, fun guy we all enjoy on the radio! Brent graduated from North Decatur High School and Ball State University. His first summer during college, Brent actually filled-in as the QMIX Afternoon Guy all summer, when there was a full-time opening on our staff. Little did he know he would return to that job many years later. Brent has worked in radio all over Indiana (and a bit in Illinois too), claiming to never have had a real job. And he’s has been back at QMIX since 2011. We hope he’ll be here for a long time to come! Some of Brent’s favorite things are IndyCar, movies and good food!
