Mike has been Music Director at KLMJ in Hampton Iowa since 1988. Originally from a small Iowa town of Jolley, he feels right at home in the community of Hampton. Over the years, Mike has enjoyed getting to know his listeners and having the chance to meet and interview the various country artists. His biggest thrill has been to meet the legends he grew up listening to. In addition, getting to know the new upcoming artists. There is a lot of great country music out there that people don't get to hear very often and Mike enjoys introducing his listeners to their music. Growing up, music was always a part of Mike's life. In fact, he remembers listening to the Opry on the radio Friday and Saturday night and never imagined going to the Opry and seeing those legends perform. He has realized that dream and many more through his job. At home, Mike spends time with the love of his life Janet along with their cats Toby and Tinker as well as a Yorkie named Bentley, who keeps everyone in the house going. Mike can be heard mornings on KLMJ with all the hits. Send Mike an email. He would love to hear from you.
