Welcome to BullsEye Radio !

JOHN MICHAELS HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN THE RADIO INDUSTRY SINCE 1982.
BUT LONG BEFORE THAT , AT THE AGE OF ONLY 10 YEARS OLD , WHILE OTHER KIDS FAVORITE HEROES WERE SUPERMAN , BATMAN , THE GREEN HORNET AND CHARACHTERS LIKE THAT , JOHN'S HEROES WERE PEOPLE LIKE WOLFMAN JACK , DICK CLARK , KASEY KASEM , SHADOE STEVENS , ARNIE "WOO WOO" GINSBERG AND OTHERS LIKE THAT !

YEARS LATER HE RECEIVED HIS CERTIFICATE OF COMPLETION IN BROADCASTING TRAINING HE THEN APPLIED FOR A FEDERAL BROADCASTERS LICENSE WHICH ALLOWS HIM TO SPEAK ON AIR IN A LICENSED RADIO STATION ANYWHERE IN THE CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

THE NEXT STEP OBVIOUSLY WAS SEEKING OUT RADIO WORK. IN A SMALL TOWN JOHN STARTED HIS FIRST JOB AS AN OLDIES DJ AND TO THIS DAY , THE OLDIES OF COURSE ARE ONE OF JOHNS FAVORITES BECAUSE THATS WHERE HE GOT HIS START.

AFTER A LONG PERIOD OF TIME WITH THIS STATION , JOHN BECAME UNSATISFIED WITH THE PAY AND THE RULES THAT WERE BEGINNING TO FORM IN FM RADIO AND DECIDED TO TRY HIS HAND AT LIVE PERFORMANCES AS A MOBILE DJ. THIS PROVED TO BE A VERY SUCCESSFUL MOVE FOR HIM ! HE MOVED UP THE CHAIN OF WELL KNOWN DJS QUICKLY PLAYING FOR NIGHTCLUBS , WEDDINGS , ANNIVERSARIES , REUNIONS , RETIEMENTS , HOLIDAY PARTIES , YOU NAME THE PARTY , HE DID IT !

JOHN BECAME THE DJ TO BOOK WHEN YOU HAD A PARTY , AND BEFORE HE KNEW IT HAD OVER 800 FUNCTIONS TO HIS CREDIT ! IN 2002 JOHN DECIDED TO MOVE, AND WITH HIM WENT ALL THE KNOWLEDGE , EXPERIENCE HE HAD GAINED AND OF COURSE THE MUSIC HE HAD ACQUIRED OVER 20 YEARS ! IT WAS THEN THAT JOHN REALIZED HE HAD TO START ALL OVER MAKING A NAME FOR HIMSELF AGAIN BECAUSE NO ONE HAD EVER HEARD OF HIM . SO . . .LOOKING FOR WORK , JOHN WENT BACK TO WHAT HE KNEW THE BEST . . . .MUSIC.

A SMALLER BUT WELL KNOWN FM RADIO STATION IN THE AREA WAS THE BEGINNING FOR JOHN. HE TOOK ON AT FIRST , PART TIME , GETTING WHATEVER HOURS THEY OFFERED HIM TO EARN A PAY . MOST OF THE HOURS OFFERED WERE HOURS NO ONE WANTED AT FIRST , BUT THEN A NEW PROGRAM MANAGER CAME IN AND IMMEDIATLEY NOTICED JOHN'S POTENTIAL AND STARTED USING HIM IN THE PRODUCTION ROOM . WHEN HE SAW THAT JOHN COULD WORK THE PRODUCTION LIKE A PRO AS WELL AS BEING A ON AIR JOCK, AND THAT JOHN KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING , JOHN WAS OFFERED A PRIME TIME AFTERNOON SHIFT 6 DAYS A WEEK. THIS LASTED ONLY UNTIL JOHN SAW THAT FM RADIO WAS ALL THE SAME , NO MATTER WHAT STATE YOU WENT TO , THEY HAD THE SAME RULES , THE SAME NON CARING ATTITUDE ABOUT PEOPLE.

JOHN KNOWS WITHOUT ONE SLIGHT DOUBT IN HIS MIND THAT PEOPLE ARE WHY FM RADIO IS SO POPULAR TODAY ! THE PROBLEM IS THAT FM RADIO DOESNT KNOW IT ! THEY HAVE FORGOTTEN WHERE THEY COME FROM , HOW THEY GOT TO BE SUCH A BIG HUGE INDUSTRY. JOHN HASNT FORGOTTEN , JOHN LEFT THE FM RADIO ONCE AGAIN ! BUT THIS TIME , THERE WAS A NEW DOOR OPENING ! TECHNOLOGY HAD OPENED THE DOOR TO WHAT WE KNOW NOW AS INTERNET STREAMING RADIO ! AN ANSWER TO FM RADIO LEAVING THEIR LISTENERS IN THE DIRT FOR CORPORATE AMERICA AND THE ALMIGHTY DOLLAR ! JOHN SEIZED THIS OPPORTUNITY AND STARTED HIS VERY OWN INTERNET RADIO STATION , RUNNING IT THE WAY HE KNEW RADIO SHOULD BE RUN . . . . .FOR THE PEOPLE !

AS WITH ANY BUSINESS, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY TRAGIC EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF BULLSEYE RADIO, LOSS OF FRIENDS AND DJ'S THAT WERE THOUGHT TO BE GOING TO BE PART OF THE STATION FOR MANY YEARS, LOSS OF LOVE THAT HAD BEEN IMAGINED TO LAST A LIFETIME, DEATH OF PEOPLE VERY VERY NEAR AND DEAR TO JOHN'S HEART, JEALOUSY, DRAMA, ANGER, SADNESS, AND FIGHTING AND ARGUING. BUT THERE HAVE BEEN VERY HAPPY EVENTS THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF BULLSEYE RADIO AS WELL. NEW FOUND LOVE, CHANCES TO MEET AND TALK WITH SOME OF THE BIGGEST NAMES IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY, MEETING NEW PEOPLE IN A NEW COMMUNITY WHO HAVE A LOVE FOR BULLSEYE RADIO THAT GOES ABOVE AND BEYOND THE EXPECTATIONS THAT JOHN COULD HAVE EVER IMAGINED. NEW EMPLOYEE'S THAT HAVE BECOME JOHN'S RIGHT HAND AND HAVE PROVEN THEMSELVES TO BE LOYAL AND TRUSTWORTHY AND PEOPLE WHO CAN BE COUNTED ON. AND MANY MORE WONDERFUL FUN HAPPY STORIES THAT WIPE AWAY ALL THE SADNESS AND TRAGEDIES THAT HAVE HAPPENED ALONG THIS JOURNEY.

AFTER TRAVELING TO THE SOUTH FOR A PERIOD OF 3 YEARS, JOHN IS NOW HAPPY TO BE BACK ONCE AGAIN IN UPSTATE NEW YORK, WHICH HE CONSIDERS TO REALLY BE HOME, WHERE SOME OF THE BEST YEARS OF HIS LIFE HAVE BEEN LIVED, AND EXPECTS THAT MANY MORE BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES ARE HEADED HIS WAY. BULLSEYE RADIO IS AS IT WAS STATED TO BE MANY YEARS AGO, A THRIVING PLACE WHERE PEOPLE CAN COME TO RELAX, PUT THE CARES OF THE DAY ON A TABLE OUTSIDE THE STATION, AND LAUGH, JOKE, ENJOY WONDERFUL MEMORIES OF YESTERYEAR, AND JUST HAVE FUN !
