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!
The news of Mindy McCready's passing has sent ripples through the country community touching a lot of people. Prayers are being said for her two young boys.
I can't but help reflect on a great memory of Mindy. Back when Pam, Gene and I did the morning show we had the opportunity to interview Mindy when she was in her prime. While talking to her we asked where she was and she said she was calling us from bed. We then went on to ask about her fiance Dean Cain. Low and behold, he was right there in bed with her. What ensued was a hilarious interview that got the three of us a CMA nomination for top morning show.
Mindy...thanks for the great memory!
Rest in Peace
