"Mike brings his personality into the music he plays, he will chat with you between sets and then you hear the story he is telling in the tunes he picks out. He takes you on a ride and it is not easy to park the car and get out. I learn something every time I listen to his show." Quinn Mathews, Former WYCE Station Manager "MikeontheMic is an advocate of everything WYCE, because he loves music with a passion. I expect to hear bubbling bass lines, soulful guitar, rocking drums, and powerful voices. In short though....what Mike brings to the listeners of WYCE is TRANSCENDENCE." AJ Paschka, Former WYCE Station Manager "When Mike's on the Mic, the music will be just a bit off center. He finds a way to lead you just beyond your range in an accessible manner. Obviously dedicated to the format and Community Radio." Lee, WYCE Volunteer Programmer "The World would be a better place if everyone was dancing. Also Playing Radio is great fun!" MikeontheMic, WYCE Volunteer Programmer

Love Michigan Blood Drive (click for more info)

As summer gets busy, the community blood supply often experiences a summer-slump.  While fewer people donate, the need for blood remains constant.

That's why Michigan Blood and several Michigan businesses are working hard this summer to make sure blood is available for patients in Michigan hospitals who need it.  They are asking donors to show how much they love their communities by donating blood during the annual Love Michigan blood drives.

The Grand Rapids Area Donor Center is located at 1036 Fuller Ave NE and will be ready for your donation of blood today through Saturday July 5th beginning at 8 am!

More information is available at m i blood dot org
