When Dakota LeAnn Summers is not out riding her new scooter then she is either spending time in hair-and-makeup or she's on the air from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Frog Country 101.5FM. With recording artists regularly stopping by to chat, and a bevy of interactive show features, she connects with her audience. Dakota has done radio in Denver, Atlanta, Indianapolis and Vegas. When she's not smashing aluminum cans against her forehead, Dakota likes to get out hiking with her back lab and greyhound. Dakota likes her Spam fried and her favorite drinking song is "Rhinestone Cowboy". We can't all be perfect…
