Funkin' From The Bassment
Hey there everyone, I am Mike Kelsey, otherwise known as MLK!
Life for me has always revolved around music. It first started in High School as a clerk in a record store – I was the guy that could tell you the Artist and Song from just a few lyrics. Thanks to my gift of having a great ear for music – I became a Buyer for an Independent Music Distribution company. I then moved on to become an Account Executive for a Major Record Label. I currently work as a Voice Over Artist, as well as the Regional Sales Manager for a Radio Station in Washington, DC. I am a Husband, Father, Music Enthusiast and Musician (drummer and bassist).
For me, music is emotion. It’s making the listener travel back to a different time in their lives. Whether the journey is good or bad, happy or sad – my goal is to take the listener to a place where they will, in the words of the late great Mr James Brown, say…”Owwwww!” For (12) years, that’s what I, as Producer of The Time Tunnel radio show on WHUR-FM in Washington, DC., brought to listeners each and every week and that’s what I plan to bring to Channel Radio! Since its inception and for the past (12) years, The Time Tunnel has been one of the Top 5 most listened to Saturday morning programs in Washington, DC. According to Nielsen Audio, the show produced a Weekly Cume audience of over 100,000 persons. Funkin’ From the Bass-Ment will consist of classic R&B songs from the late ’60s, 70’s and early ’80s. There will be some hits sprinkled in, but mostly it will be songs that may not have made the charts – but still exist in your memory! See You in the Bass-Ment, Monday Evenings on Music Channel 1 – Mike Kelsey
