The Mike Harvey Show
Saturday 6pm-12am

SharkiesAt the age of 10, Mike Harvey’s passion was RADIO. Filing records at his local station and building his first “illegal” radio station in his bedroom (the neighbors’ complaints shut him down in just a few days) was just the beginning of Mike’s career! Anxious to hear more “rock & roll music,” Mike built his own receiver by stringing a “spider web” of copper antenna wire throughout the neighborhood roofs and tree-tops. It worked! And his ingenuity allowed Mike to receive music from distant rock & roll stations throughout the country where now-famous disk jockeys influenced him.

On his 16th birthday, Mike received his Radio Operator’s License, and that same day, applied to the local radio station for a disk-jockey job…. and became “The Teen Time” DJ after school…. for a whopping $20/week!

Those days and that salary are gone, of course….but Mike’s forte remains his on-air delivery and content.  3WZ is proud to include The Mike Harvey Saturday Night All-Request Party in its all-star weekend lineup.  The show airs LIVE Saturday night from 6-midnight, and includes requests.

Absolutey 80’s with Nina Blackwood
Sunday 6-9pm

Her voice and face are instantly recognizable as the iconic representative of rock and roll at a time when music was fun, and changed the world. As MTV’s very first VJ, NINA BLACKWOOD became the symbol of all things hip and culturally on-point for a whole generation who looked to her as the final word on rock knowledge and history.

After five wildly successful years as the face of MTV, NINA signed an unprecedented dual show contract with Paramount Television, anchoring both her own weekly “Rock Report” on Entertainment Tonight, and co-hosting TV’s award winning show “Solid Gold.” Her popularity led to appearances on Britain’s top TV network the BBC, as well as European and American network television and film appearances including “Live Aid,” “The British Phonograph Awards,” “The Monteux Rock Festival” and “Farm Aid.”

In 1999, NINA’s nationally syndicated radio program “Absolutely80s” went on the air, kicking off major new interest in both the music and lifestyle of the ‘80s. The hit show is still distributed by United Stations Radio Networks.
