Mike Rovin

Music and entertainment is in my DNA. My sister and I used to stand on a crate and sing along to whatever music our parents played in the house. When I was a bit older, my best friend and I used to record fake radio shows into our tape recorder. I've also played the drums since I was 3 years old and have been a several different bands. I love to be on the radio talking about my crazy life, my 2 awesome kids Roxy and Everett and my silly little puppy named Elvis. Tune in and share your stories with me. I love to hear all about what's going on in your crazy day to day!
