J. Michael Harrison
Mike first ventured into radio as a result of being frustrated with the lack of progressive, diverse, and adventurous music on the airwaves. His first program, Is That Jazz?, debuted on West Philly based WPEB in 1993 and ran for more than three years. Mike joined WRTI in 1994 and The Bridge, which is a local forum for progressive music and poetry, began in1996.
Music is Michael's sanctuary, and a kind of therapy for him. "Music is a passion," he explains, " a reason to live, and a bright moment."
Philadelphia Magazine awarded The Bridge its 2002 Best of Philly prize for "Best Radio Program."
Mike can be heard on Fridays from 10 pm to 2 am.
