Mike J DJ Profile

A music obsessive since my youth spent spinning Hall & Oates records and watching WKRP in Cincinnati, my show reflects a lifetime immersed in sounds both new and old; close to home and around the world.

"Music is everything to me short of breathing. Music also has a role to lift you up - not to be escapist but to take you out of misery." - Allen Toussaint
