Mike Taylor is one of two on-air personalities who worked at all three versions of WOXY. He spent two stints at 97X in Oxford, Ohio, and stayed with the station as it became the online-only woxy.com, which set up shop in downtown Cincinnati and later moved to Austin, Texas. Dave and Damian chat with him about his radio experiences over the years, the great live performances that took place on woxy.com, his alma mater, and, inexplicably, Rick Astley.
He's the intern who became the Breakfast Club co-host for 8 years. He's a Dirty Mayor and he has the hard cider to prove it. He's the original University of Dayton "Rudy Flyer" mascot... the Aye Team captain... and a pitchman for mesh and meat snacks. It must be the one, the only, the Rictile!
Abe Froman may be the Sausage King of Chicago (per Ferris Bueller) but he can't hold a candle to Julie Maxwell, who co-hosted the 97X "Breakfast Club" morning show for many years, and also served as the station's promotions manager. If you ever scored concert tickets, prizes or station swag, Julie probably had a hand in it. Dave and Damian chat with her about Outdoor Underwear Festivals, Sinead O'Connor box cutters and her favorite co-host.
Dave and Damian chat with the legendary Steve Baker, who worked at 97X for 20 years in a variety of roles: news reporter, Breakfast Club host, station manager, play-by-play announcer for Miami University football and basketball, singer of jingles and National Anthems, etc. Steve's voice also stars in the movie Rainman ("97X... BAM!... the future of rock and roll!")
Dave ("The Dick Clark of Modern Rock") and Damian ("The Dick Sargent of Modern Rock") chat about the Modern Rock 500 and artists/bands that stopped by the station. And you'll find out why a Bel Canto moment lasts 60 minutes.
