The Mikie Show

Series produced by Michael Carroll

Series image

The Mikie Show is a half hour radio variety show. We're here to raise your spirits. If you have no spirits, a glass of iced tea will do. It's fun and funny. Sometimes subtle. There's a little theater. Let's not forget corny—but it's the good kind of corny. There are guest interviews. There's a quiz and we always have some news. There's also a cast of, well, characters. So much really how can you resist? Thanks for tuning in!

Our listeners are very enthusiastic. "Love" is a word we hear a lot. Even more “…I’ve never heard anything quite like it. I just left my present space for a half hour and had so much fun!” But my favorite: “I’m totally addicted!”
So much really how can you resist? Thanks for tuning in!
