Live & Local As Heck!

Dave Gunderson  "A-Hole"

A Utah man am I. Born and raised in Salt Lake, I graduated from Cottonwood High School and attended the University of Utah with my focus in Broadcast Journalism. I’ve always had a love for music and the gift of gab, which led me to a 30 year career in radio and TV doing on-air, sales, marketing and promotions throughout Utah.  Round one with KSOP was in 1990 for 5 years and round two started in 2010 doing Afternoon Drive eventually leading to what is now “Dave and Deb” in the Morning in 2011. I love country music, the outdoors, sports and my family. I’m married with 4 kids and living the dream.


Deb Turpin "Sturdy Girl" Born and raised in Kaysville and graduated from Davis High School...go Darts! I attended Weber State University and the University of Utah where I studied French, Business, Police Science, IT and Psychology...haha...yeah I know. Then I thought about becoming a veterinarian, until I remembered the math skills required for that. I grew up listening to KSOP and music has always been my go-to in life. With some obvious trouble focusing on one college major, I asked myself what my dream job would be? Radio! There weren't really any openings here, but I came in several days in a row & begged. I started working as the landscaper and promo gopher. I became the Music Director in 1991 and have added the responsibilities of Program Director in 2009 and Morning Show Co-Host in 2011. I love my family, my friends, my dogs, FOOD!, Netflix, documentaries, movies, country music (really, most music) and cowboy boots. I have way too many. It's a privilege to bring new music to Utah radio and have fun on the air every day.
