When Mike took a radio job in high school on a dare, he went from paper boy to radio announcer and hasn’t been the same since. After slogging through the greatest hits of Montovani, Zeppelin, and Conway Twitty for an old school boss who had a real deal Errol Flynn radio mustache and a Dr. Grabow pipe, Mike decided being on the air was not in the cards. So he takes a few years detour into tending bar and playing guitar in a few bands BUT, because he needs a real job, goes back into broadcasting. No more DJ shifts though. This time he goes in for radio and TV production and that’s when the fun begins. Writing, voicing, and producing in a little room full of sound effects and tape machines rocked it for Mike! His work got noticed and the market size went up a few times and he even got some awards for what seemed to him like playing make believe all the time! Mike’s neighbors haven’t decided what to do about the man next door who often talks to himself out loud, and always seems to be waiting on the mail.
