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  –  October 8, 2016 – Great Lakes Radio’s Joe Duckworth was live at the Marquette City Fire Department’s Fire Prevention Day Saturday morning to broadcast all the fun stuff going on!

    It was a day for the kids at Harlow Park in Marquette, as they were able to see more than $10 million worth of fire fighting equipment, get their faces painted, and a whole bunch of other fun activities!

    Smoky the Bear and Sparky the Fire Dog were also there to hang out with the kids and help teach them about fire safety. Ambitious youngsters even got to climb in and around the fire equipment!

    They even had lots to do for adults! The city fire department provided bonds, and they were on hand to test and distribute fire and smoke detectors. It all ended with a roll-out of the fire equipment that the kids loved!

    Listen to the live audio below:

  • PIONEER DAYS PARADE IS A BIG HIT IN NEGAUNEE!

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: WQXO


    Negaunee, MI July 9, 2016 — Today,  Iron Street in Negaunee was packed with people enjoying the Pioneer Days Parade! There were no shortages of floats, marching groups and exciting sounds in this event. Today was my first Pioneer Days Parade, and now I can’t wait for next year. All of the pride and hard work shown by all of the groups, as well as the excitement and smiles seen from the crowd, made this parade a great addition to the Pioneer Days celebration!

    We at Great Lakes Radio were also very glad to be a part of all the excitement! Walt and Mike from the Sunny Morning Show started our line up in the flashy Sunny.fm van and behind them was Joe Duckworth manning the WRUP van. Following behind the WRUP van was Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show with Todd Noordyk as co-captain in a camouflage Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette. Completing our crew was Eric Scott and Lane Dawson in the 103 FXD box truck!

    One of my favorite floats was the MCMCF Wizard of Oz Rainbow Float. The Negaunee High

    MCMCF Wizard of Oz Rainbow Float

    MCMCF Wizard of Oz Rainbow Float

    School Class Reunion floats were other parade favorites.

    There was also a picnic at Teal Lake following the parade!

    The cost of the Pioneer Days celebration is pretty high, and the Negaunee Irontown Association can always use more help and support to make the Pioneer Days celebration just as great as, if not better than, it has been all these years. If you would like to lend a helping hand or donate to the Pioneer Days or the Fireworks on Teal Lake for next year, take a look at this information:

  • EVERYONE CAME OUT TO THE MARQUETTE FOURTH OF JULY PARADE

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Uncategorized, WQXO


    Marquette, MIJuly 4, 2016 — The street was packed with people who joined in the Fourth of July parade celebration. The groups were bright, friendly and some even showed off a lot of exciting sounds! This year, Sunny.fm, 103FXD and WRUP were well represented for Great Lakes Radio. Todd Noordyk, our leader here at Great Lakes Radio Inc., was heading up our vehicles with Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show. Adam was driving a stylish Kawasaki Mule from Zambon’s in Marquette with  Miss Pre-Teen Great Lakes State and Miss Pre-Teen Upper Midwest in a boat behind excitedly passing out candy with smiles and waves.

    Eric Tasson was manning the 103 FXD truck with Lane Dawson as his co-pilot. Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds was behind them hauling our newest giveaway prize, the Steamin’ Summer Sauna. Bill Tibor was next in the WRUP van with Mike and Walt from the Sunny Morning Show saving the day and completing our line-up in the Sunny.fm van with flashing lights.

    The Children's Museum had such a cute float at the parade

    There was a all-around great showing of floats and groups on this warm and wonderful Independence Day. The Marquette High School Class of 1971 float especially eye-catching with their VW Van structure and ’70s throwback decorations. Another parade favorite was the veteran and military groups who were well represented and respected throughout the parade.

    It’s a wonderful sunny day for celebrating  The United States of America’s independence. Let us know how you celebrated your holiday or any of your favorite attractions from the parade!
