Greg 'Wheels' Moore is the Co-Host of "The Green Zone" for Rawlco Radio, but we submit his nickname should be switched to "Lil Tuna." Greg's journey from Vegas Knights Superfan, adventure having, bon vivant wasn't a straight line, it involved that hard-to-quantify quality of human connection, spanning across countries and decades.

Many radio personalities choose nicknames or have nicknames chosen for them. Regina radio has had many over the years, Buzz, Ballsy, Woody, Crash, Mars, and so on.

Years ago, a mid-market radio station in LaCrosse Wisconsin was home to a DJ named Wayne Danielson. Wayne was getting started in the radio world, and his producers and bosses told him he needed to choose a nickname. Looking at his lunch that day, he said "We're having such a hard time deciding, but lets not pick something stupid like "Tuna."

Wayne's boss turned to him and said "That's it! Big Tuna!"

Wayne hated it. It stuck, and for a time, he was known as Big Tuna, on Wisconsin radio.

Years later, Greg Moore made friends with some folks at a local craft brewery in his home town of Regina, Saskatchewan. They invited him to talk to them about branding, social media, marketing and to share all the things he'd learned.

At the same time, Greg was working with his friend Justin, and they are big hockey fans, and they were on a mission to convince the entire province of Saskatchewan to adopt the Vegas Golden Knights as the hockey team of the province. (Plenty of Saskatchewan-born players and Canadians already played for the Golden Knights, it kind of just made sense.)

Greg and Justin were working hard to get the attention of the Vegas Golden Knights organization, and as most things in life tend to be, success comes down to who you know.

Greg figured out that Wayne Danielson, formerly "Big Tuna," and now "Big D," was working with the Vegas Golden Knights. One of Greg's friends from the craft brewery just so happened to be married to a Wisconsin girl who worked with Wayne at the Wisconsin radio station years before. This is not to diminish Greg or Justin's charm and ability to make friends with anyone, but we'd like to believe it was her "Tell Wayne I say 'hello!' helped break the ice with Wayne, and he in-turn, helped open doors for Justin and Greg to pull off all their Vegas Knights adventures.

So in tribute to Wayne, we submit, Greg's radio nickname be switched to, 'Lil Tuna.'
