DJ Profile: Metal Mike

What's the name of your show? Anything Goes

What's your show about and when does it air? Anything Goes is on Saturday from 9pm until Midnight. We play Rock( Hard, soft or pop), Metal, Country, Oldies, Soul, Jazz, Folk, R&B, Standards, Classics, the Blues, and even some comedy. On this show, Anything Goes!

Is there a story behind your on-air name?  I started at WKUF in 2008 with a show called the The Butcher Shop Radio Show, which was a metal show, so I called myself Metal Mike. The name stuck, especially after I became co-producer of FlintRockFest, which was Flint's largest metal festival.

How long has your show been on the air? Since early 2010

What do you like to do in your spare time? I am an avid amateur radio operator --callsign KD8DES-- and have an operating multiple-band amateur station in my home. I love working DX (distant stations around the planet), as well as participating in Skywarn and other local ham radio activities. I love to fish, hunt, and camp, and enjoy all kinds of outdoor sports. I am a dedicated fan of the Detroit Lions, Detroit Tigers, Detroit Red Wings, and U of M Athletics. At home, of course, I spend much of time listening to music, and my tastes vary greatly.

If you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island and could choose only 10 songs, what would they be?

  1. Grateful Dead "Uncle John's Band"
  2. REO Speedwagon "Keep Pushin' On"
  3. Led Zeppelin "O'er the Hills and Far Away"
  4. Harry Chapin "Taxi"
  5. Batdorf and Rodney "My Surprise"
  6. Robin Trower "Bridge of Sighs"
  7. QueensRyche "Silent Lucidity"
  8. The Outlaws "Green Grass and High Tides"
  9. Joe Walsh "Rocky Mountain Way"
  10. Rush "2112"

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences? A few years ago, legendary bassist Rudy Sarzo was a guest on my show, After the interview, he promised us tickets for DTE Theater to see Blue Oyster Cult, the band with which he was playing at the time.We had front-row stage-side seats! When the show ended, Security escorted us (my former show partner Robbin and I) back stage, where we got to meet bandmate Donald Roeser (Buck Dharma) and hang out with Rudy til the wee hours of the morning. Great night!

Tell us something about yourself that people might find surprising. As a child, I took violin lessons.

In the movie "WKUF: The Untold Story", who would you cast as yourself? Jeff Bridges
