Thank you so much for stopping by my page for a visit! For those of you new to WMUS, I'll give you a little bit of insight into who Mark Dixon is. For those of you who have been around for some time, you pretty much know everything about me. My life is pretty much an open book.
I've come by my career in broadcasting honestly, having grown up in Kalamazoo as a son of a radio disc jockey. My father was a DJ at WKZO and was the long time "voice" of TV Channel 3 (WKZO, currently WWMT). Years later, my career in radio began in 1978 in the small town of Ottawa, Ohio. From there I had a short stint in Lima, Ohio. Since 1988 my family has called WMUS and West Michigan home.
My interests are bicycling, deer and turkey hunting, bowling, golf, and computers (I've become quite a geek late in life.). I also enjoyed coaching my son in soccer when he went to Fruitport
You probably know that I'm not shy about bragging and talking about my grandkids, Katelyn and Brendan on the air either!
Ever since I've gotten into cycling I've been wanting to ride in the ODRAM which stands for One Day Ride Across Michigan. It starts in Montague and wraps up in Bay City. That's nearly 150 miles in one day! There were two things stopping me. 1) I didn't have a bike that could handle it and 2) It was always held on Moose Fest Saturday. Oh Bother!
Well last September I got a new Trek road bike so that solves one problem. And the best thing...I just found out that they moved it to the week before Moose Fest! YES!!!!!
It sounds like my Wednesday riding buddies want to do it with me. Nothing like having great company on a ride like that. Do we sound crazy or are you interested too? Check out their link and who knows maybe we'll see on the road on August 10th this year!
