Broadcasting from Fort Wayne, Indiana
Besides TWOB, MikeD enjoys magic (as in Lance Burton, not The Gathering) and does occasional magic shows. He works as a wine expert for a local liquor store, and is a member in the local Linux User’s Group. Other than that, he has ‘retired’ from the ‘work a day world’.
Mike got his ‘broadcast’ start playing tunes on the local collage campus ‘closed circuit’ network in the early 70s. He got serious in 1985 when he took a position as a host for a jazz and blues show on the local public radio station, WBNI/WBOI. He had a ball at Northeast Indiana Public Radio, ‘www.nipr.fm’for more than 20 years.
But his real love is the blues. Mike first ‘discovered’ the blues when he heard Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee playing at a small local coffee house in 1973. There was no turning back, he was a serious blues fan from then on.
While Mike was still doing his show on WBOI, there just wasn’t as much ‘blues time’ on his show as he would like. So when the opportunity to do a blues only show for a blues only station, he was all over that. And now MikeD Live is here on TWOB. Stop by and listen to Mike playing his blues heart out for all of our TWOB blues fans on Sundays from 5:00pm until 9:00pm Eastern Time.
