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!
It's Bike to Work Week. Have you been riding? The weather has been pretty good and should be pleasant for the rest of the week! I've been commuting by bike for years so if you have any questions feel free to reach out to me at Mark@107mus.com
You are encouraged to leave the car at home and bike to work. It saves gas, helps the environment, is healthy for you and above all it's fun!
The Ride of Silence of Silence is tomorrow!
This world-wide event honors those who have been injured or killed while riding a bike. It also promotes the Share the Road message to motorists. Join Mark Dixon, May 15th at 6:30 pm down at Heritage Landing in Muskegon. The route is only 7 miles and riders will be going at an easy 10-12 mph pace.
So if you can't commute to work but would still like to get out and ride, please bring your bikes and don't forget your helmets! Tell your friends and we'll see ya there tomorrow!
