Dave Michaels

Morning DJ / Senior Radio Producer

Monday - Friday 5am - 10am

From birth, Dave was nursed on rock 'n' roll, country and Americana music.  In fact, his dad captured him on reel-to-reel singing from his crib to Roger Miller's "King of The Road"; a recording Dave has never let out of his possession!  Discovery of his parent's General Electric hi-fi ignited his passion for radio, and after getting a gig at a college radio station, he was hooked!  28 years later, we can see his instincts were spot on!

From on air to production director, Dave's radio career has taken him from Glens Falls to Albany, where he has hosted the morning show on Exit 97.7 WEXT since it's inception in 2007. 

Tune in for Stax at Sunrise at 6:30, Breakfast with The Beatles at 7:20 and Dawn of The Dead at 8:30.
