GOOD TIME OLDIES

Our DJ's bring you the golden era of pop, rock, and soul: hit music of the '60s and '70s.

  • BRUCE PALMER

    IN THE MORNING

    6am-2pm EST
    Listen to Bruce Palmer in the mornings from 5a-1p on 97.5 GTO! Bruce has over 30 years in the radio business starting in suburban Philadelphia. Now with a personal music collection of more than 60,000 tunes, a garage packed with a dozen antique cars, and loving radio more than ever, he’s living the dream. When Bruce’s not on the air, he’s probably playing with his dogs & cats, sitting back to take in a baseball game, spending time with his wife and two daughters, or most likely, out in the garage under a hood. You see, he really is radio’s original “car guy.”

  • CHEREE CARTER

    AFTERNOON/EVENINGS

    2pm-10pm EST
    Cheree started her radio career in the sunshine state of Florida 15 years ago. Since then she has graced the airwaves coast-to-coast and in between. Cheree also has enjoyed figure skating on-and-off competitively all her life, and she owns two horses that she rides & shows in competitions in English Pleasure and jumping. She’s a die-hard NFL fan, one of the biggest animal enthusiasts, and loves all kinds of music. Cheree’s also known as “Super Aunt” with two nieces that are simply beautiful inside-and-out.

  • RIC GIBSON

    OVERNIGHTS

    10pm-6am EST
    Ric has been in radio for 38 years. He started his music “education” by singing do-wop on the street corners of Brooklyn in the early 60’s. He furthered his “education” as he worked for one of the largest record stores in New York City witnessing one of the greatest eras in music, the 60’s. He later started his own band and got signed to Mercury records. These days he’s married and has one son who seems to be taking up where Ric left off as a music major and multi-instrumentalist. Ric also owns a recording business where, at times, he and his son frequently hang out and jam. Aside from radio and music, Ric and his wife also trained in the art of Shaolin-Kempo Karate. Both are martial arts instructors and they both hold the rank of Black Belt.

    Marquette, MI  –  February 25, 2017  –  We had a great time out at the Crossroads this afternoon for the 2017 Antique &  Vintage Snowmobile Show! There’s been a lot going on the last few days for the event, including yesterday’s ride! We had Jerry and Nancy holding down the fort at today’s spectator show, and the two of them got to chat with a number of people from the show.

    The Antique & Vintage Snowmobile Show started at 11 am. The turn out for participants was even better than last year, with over 30 classic snowmobiles on display. Check out the live audio below to listen to Jerry’s interview with club president Tim. He also caught up with Sherri, talking about the free registration and event rides taking place throughout the day.

    It was a day full of fun for the entire family, with kids joining in for the Mini Sled Fun Run and Sawdust Pile Treasure Hunt. Some of the snowmobile owners joined in for the Loud Pipes Snowmobile Contest and of course, there was the Epic Mannequin Contest. Sled owners participated in this contest in hopes of winning 1st, 2nd or 3rd place for the most wild mannequin set up. There were also 50/50 raffles and of course the 1977 Panther Sled Raffle.
