This is a very young Mike, circa 1961, on the air at small town station WATH in Athens Ohio. Mike started in college radio at WOUB while a student at Ohio University. Whenever a student would leave WOUB for the town’s commercial station, the old radio professors would claim it to be the downfall of a student, the shattering of a promising career. Imagine leaving classical music for a life of Rock and Roll. And commercials! After a few years at WATH Mike got a new name, contact lenses, a better haircut, and a job at The New WCOL.
