I have been in radio since 1982. Lots of formats, lots of stations. Through the years, I was lucky enough to have worked at over 20 different radio stations in 15 different cities and 5 different states. It has been a fun ride and I hope it doesn't end anytime soon. US 103.1 is a great radio station to "work" at. "Work" is a relative term. It's not really work, its playing the music I listen to on my own. I'm also the guy lucky enough to fill in for Carl, Jeremy and Amie when they take well deserved time off
Paper or plastic? Other than bagging groceries at the A&P in town or milking cows on Daddy and Mother’s dairy farm, I’ve only ever worked “on-air” in radio. After high school, I read the obituary report on the Lapeer radio station (yep, same frequency) and was a Mortarman in the 4rth Infantry Division in the Central Highlands of Vietnam. Bringing free-form radio back to Detroit in creating and hosting "The Rif Rock Café” and being “Your Afternoon Coffey Break” were high-points of my radio career in the Motor City.
I was born and raised in Flint, attending Holy Redeemer High School, Mott Community College, and I have degree in Liberal Arts from the University of Michigan-Flint. I'm also a veteran of the United States Air Force, serving from 1968-1972, and an avid racquetball player that enjoys his workouts at Hurley Health & Fitness Center. I joined Cars 108 and work in multiple roles as Operations Manager and Program Director. I assumed the Program Director role for WQUS (US1031) in 2012.
You can always catch Amie Burke listening to music. Always! Some say she has headphones glued to her ears at all times. She grew up in a house where Fleetwood Mac was always followed by Pink Floyd and Guns n' Roses. Amie is a graduate from Davison High School (Go CARDS!), Mott Community College (Go Bears!), and Central Michigan University (Fire Up CHIPS!). She currently lives in Columbiaville in Lapeer County and loves to venture down M-24 into Lapeer to have fun at community events
