Luke Matthews

Luke Matthews is a life-long resident of Central Iowa, Luke currently lives in Ankeny with his wife, Susan and their cats, Basil and Sydney.  When Luke isn’t on the air, he keeps busy maintaining the MORE 104 website and social media channels.  After work, it’s a safe bet that Luke is catching live music somewhere in the Midwest!  A self-proclaimed “concert junkie,” Luke travels all over to see his favorite artists like Kelly Clarkson, Dave Matthews Band, John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Sara Bareilles, and many more.

If he’s not taking in live music, Luke is likely enjoying sports!  He’s a die-hard Iowa State Cyclone, a huge Green Bay Packers fan and also loves his Chicago White Sox.  He even occasionally gets back to his alma mater, Valley High School to catch the Tigers play.

Luke’s favorite places in Central Iowa are Jack Trice Stadium on game days, the Iowa Events Center, Jordan Creek Town Center, Court Avenue and the East Village.  Luke tries to visit as many local restaurants as he can and says he loves Ankeny’s Leaning Tower of Pizza, Django, Sam & Gabe’s and Fong’s among others.

Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band was a paean to LSD because of the initials in the title, but it was actually based on a drawing that John Lennon's young son Julian brought home from school. He told his father the drawing was of Lucy in the sky with diamonds. Lucy Vodden, now living in Surrey just outside of London _ drifted apart after schoolyard days, but they have gotten back in touch as Lennon has tried to help Vodden cope with Lupus, a life-threatening disease.
