Mike Waters

Born a poor white child in Davenport, Iowa. Son of Muddy Waters and sister of Roger Waters. I Lived in Iowa for the first year of my life and grew up in a suburb of Minneapolis called New Hope!  That always gets my fellow Star Wars geeks excited.  My 2 favorite things in life, other than my family are good comedy (Marx Brothers, Monty Python, Steve Martin, Bill Murray, etc…) and good music!  Classic Hits of course.

I’ve been doing radio for 30 years in places like Madison, Wisconsin, Southern Maryland, Yakima Washington, and for most of my adult life in Fargo, North Dakota where I’ve said things like “Oof Duh!” and “You Betcha!”.  I’ve seen the movie over 20 times.  I’ve also seen the movie, Cedar Rapids starring Ed Helms and John C Reilly…liked that one a lot as well.  Unfortunately, neither of those movies were filmed in their titular locations.

I’m very excited to be doing radio here at KOKZ in Eastern Iowa!  You can hear me weekday mornings from 5:30 – 10am with nothing but fun and the best classic hits ever recorded.
