"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
