I’m Mandi Michaels from Indiana so I feel right at home here in Iowa! I had never seen the Mississippi River until I moved to Burlington but I did practice spelling it in Elementary school. You’ll find me in downtown Burlington shopping on Jefferson, drinking an espresso or talking loudly 😉 If you see me out, please say hi! I love meeting listeners and may ask for a selfie. I like to take photos because I share stories with you but don’t get to see you! It’s a strange friendship we have, lol
A little about me, I graduated from Ball State University with the “David Letterman Degree” but waiting on my millions. Been in love with radio since I used a double cassette tape recorder to play songs and record myself when I was 10. I’ve met a few stars but by far having 50 Cent kiss me on the cheek and say I was pretty was the best. Also interviewing the cast of Cougartown in Napa Valley and meeting Monica from Friends…um I mean Courteney Cox is a dream moment too.
