Mike is a Modesto boy who began his radio career at KOSO in Patterson, CA. in 1974. He was 17 years old. At that time Mike said he was playing “elevator music.” That didn’t last long because Mike had the urge to ROCK and in 1974 at the age of 18 Mike was hired by Larry Maher at KFIV, Modesto, CA. And from there Mike was on his way. He worked numerous stations in California and across the nation.
Here are a few of the stations Mike has worked for: KXOA, KHYL Magic 101, Cool 101, KROY, KSEG, KSFM, KNDE in Sacramento, CA; KBEE, KFIV in Modesto, CA; KOSO in Patterson, CA; KXXR in Kansas City, MO; KLUC in Las Vegas, NV and KOWL in South Lake Tahoe, CA.
Mike’s last air shift was in 2007 at Magic 101 in Sacramento. He is now employed as an Information Technology Specialist for California’s Office Systems Integration.
