Hey guys…Its Tim. Here are the basics. I’ve been doing this crazy radio thing since 2001, the same year I moved to Northern Michigan from downstate. I’ve been a drummer since I’ve been 5 years old, so the music from artists we now call Classic Rock is something I’ve always gravitated towards. I remember as a kid trying to recreate those insane drum fills Neil Peart would play for Rush, or try and copy the hard hitting syncopated style of Bonham in his all too short time with Zeppelin.
You can hear my show on Monday through Friday from 3p-7p…we have fun. Monday has the Beatle Break at 4…theres the “Almost 4:20break” ...Grizzly Bear sports and other good times each day!
When I’m not on the radio, I’m a huge Wings, Lions and Tigers fan. Wings are my favorite though.
That’s really all I can say in this little window beneath my picture before it starts feeling like a weird dating site profile. ….anyhow, thanks for listening.
Since August 18th 2001, “NASCAR” Steve has served as the self-proclaimed Ambassador to NASCAR for Northern Michigan, taking a fan’s perspective as he brings the world of NASCAR to the people of Northern Michigan and beyond.
It started simply enough with a twice weekly feature keeping fans up to date on the latest news of the sport and tons of information about the weekends events. NASCAR Steve’s passion struck a cord with Northern Michigan race fans giving them a local source for the information they craved with a local host they could get to know!
Over the years “NASCAR” Steve has taken the role of ambassador seriously, traveling far and wide to bring fans a better perspective of the sport. Steve has reported live from 39 races at MIS, Bristol’s August weekend, Champions weekend @ Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville in October, the Milwaukee Mile, and the Cup Series Points Banquet in New York. Media credentials in hand Steve has also tracked down some of the biggest stars of the sport including Cup Series Champs Jeff Gordon, Tony Stewart, and Rusty Wallace just to name a few! In 2003 he “got behind the wheel” attending Richard Petty Driving Experience and Track Time Driving School at MIS and in 2005, made the second cut for “Reality Racing: the Rookie Experience” reality TV show on Spike TV.
Steve’s “NASCAR” notoriety hasn’t changed the fact that he is a LOCAL personality; he has hosted over 400 live events, attended numerous nights at local tracks including Cherry, Merritt, Kalamazoo and Northern Michigan Speedway, and helped promote the 2008 Chick-Fil-A Kyle Petty Charity Ride kickoff in Traverse City.
NASCAR Steve continues to be a Northern Michigan favorite as “wheelman” for the FAST LANE on Classic Rock The BEAR...
I’m a Northern Michigan native that enjoys any and everything active in the great outdoors including skiing, biking, running, camping, etc. My itch for adrenaline took me out west for a few years where I spent a short stint in a little place called Aspen….where the beer flows like wine… I also spent a few years on the west coast in Oregon where I developed my love of craft beer. I love being back in Northern Michigan where I can play outdoors all day and spend my nights enjoying great local beer and food with family and friends. When I’m not rocking out on the air, you now know where you can find me!
Catch me on the air during the weekends.
Today on the BEAR!
