EVERYONE asks us.....We met in 1996 in Baton Rouge, La., where Big D was hosting a morning show and Bubba was hosting afternoons. We immediately hit it off, both on and off the air, and ended up pairing up to co-host a show together at the ripe old ages of 24! Big D: I started in radio when I was 14 years old at a 1000-watt Christian radio station in Cookeville, Tenn.
