Congrats on 50 years, Mitch! From Robert Feder's column this morning...
Monday marks a milestone for Mitch Michaels, afternoon personality on Alpha Media west suburban classic hits WERV 95.9-FM. It’ll be the 50th anniversary of his first broadcast on Chicago radio — as evening host on the former WGLD. “The station was on the floor of an old folks’ home — the Oak Park Arms Hotel in Oak Park — which I always thought was an unusual place for a rock station,” he once recalled. “There was a fire escape in the program director’s office and the door out faced east. I’d go out there for smoke breaks and just look at the Chicago skyline at night, knowing that’s where I really needed to be.” Michaels went on to a stellar career, including stops at WXRT, WDAI, WKQX, WLUP and WCKG. In 2017 he released his memoir, Doin’ the Cruise: Memories From A Lifetime in Radio and Rock & Roll, published by Eckhartz Press.

Top 5 for me
Young Frankenstein escaped OTD in 1974. Gene Wilder said this was his favourite film of his own, but who's got time to watch it during the Christmas rush? Don't worry, I've condensed the whole thing into 2 minutes for you pic.twitter.com/HrmQHgGFfP— The Sting (@TSting18) December 15, 2021
