Dave Does It!

From ballroom dancing to roofing to trophy fishing, Kentucky Life host Dave Shuffett has tackled just about anything for the "Dave Does It!" segments of the program. Here's a sampling of the 16 segments that have aired since 2009.

Ballroom Dancing: Ballroom dancing is all the rage, and Dave travels to Covington for lessons at the Baker Hunt Art and Cultural Center.

Roofing: Armed with shingles and the knowledge that a house is only as good as its roof, Dave gets his on-the-job training from Ray Nolan Roofing in Louisville.

Trophy Fishing: What does it take to land a trophy fish? Dave's guide is Bobby Gentry, who teaches Dave a casting technique called "the Float-n-Fly."
