(Right side in picture) Mike grew up in East Pointe, Michigan outside of Detroit. He has fond memories of playing drums throughout his school years and his love of music comes from his father, as he recalls his Dad playing records and dancing with his mother in their living room.
Mike’s interest in radio began when he was a teenager. He would attend live radio remotes in the Detroit area and dreamed about becoming a Rock and Roll DJ.
About 20 years ago Mike’s dream came true when he began radio broadcasting as a guest DJ on several live radio shows in Detroit and had the opportunity to be a part of David Washington’s Twenty Grand Revue on WPON. It was on David’s show where Keith’s and Mike’s paths crossed. Keith was a regular call in correspondent from the UK.
From there Keith and Mike developed a friendship and co-founded the UK USA Soul Connection, now the UK USA Rock n Soul Connection a syndicated international radio show that airs on the internet and FM stations all over the world.
In addition, Mike continues as a guest DJ on the Elvis and Buddy Holly tribute shows on live radio in Detroit with his good friend and long time DJ Jimmy James.
