On Deck - Monday, July 12, 2021

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Monday, July 12, 2021. Our top story is about how a burglary last week at a downtown Peoria gun store has heightened police concerns about the number of illegal firearms on the streets and increasing gun violence in the city. You'll also hear how a six-year-old boy is capturing the hearts of many in Peoria by doing the unexpected: working at a South Peoria road construction site. The workers on Western Avenue have taken King Brownlee under their wing after the youth expressed interest in their trade.

Daniel joined WCBU with eight years of experience in public radio, primarily in operations and engineering. He is also an accomplished DJ, with over 20 years of experience at night clubs and special events including the world-renowned John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, the U.S. State Department, the White House, and the 2013 Commander in Chief Inaugural Ball.
