Hey there, thanks for stopping by to learn a little bit more about me. As you probably know, I’m Jake Michaels, your morning show host on Oldiez 93 WBZD. Born and raised in Williamsport, I began my radio career in 1993 on Rock 99.3 / 103.7 WZXR FM hosting the overnight program. It was a position I loved as the bosses were always a sleep when I was on the air and therefore I was less apt to get into trouble... LOL! After moves around various time slots on WZXR, I eventually landed as the morning show host on OldieZ 93 WBZD. For someone like me that just absolutely loves music, I couldn’t possibly have a better job.
On my morning show you’ll hear news, have a chance to win some prizes and have a few laughs as well, but the most important thing is the music. I love to share the good times and great oldiez. While some stations are all about talk… blah, blah, blah… we’re all about the music and keeping you movin’ and groovin’ through the day.
You’ll also find me on the radio on Sunday mornings as the host of the “Oldiez 93 Beatles Brunch.” It’s two hours of the most fab music in the Susquehanna Valley. I’ve been a Beatles fan since I was about 12 when I first discovered their music and it has been with me ever since.
I must admit that I also enjoy a nice glass of wine. There are some wonderful wineries right here in the Susquehanna Valley that the love of my life and I like to visit. We also enjoy traveling to Seneca Lake to visit the numerous wineries that surround that area. I’m an enormous Pittsburgh Steelers fan and even have my man cave decked out with yellow and black walls and lots of Steelers memorabilia. That photo to the left was taken out in Pittsburgh while tailgating for a Steelers game. Yes, my honey with me was a Steelers fan before I came along, I didn't have to encourage her... Ha!
I'm the father of one daughter who currently resides in Tennessee with her husband and their son. Yes, I am a grandfather... or as I prefer to be called "Pop." So that’s just a little about me… thank you for stopping by and thank you for listening!
THE FINAL MONTH TO SIGN UP!!!
