At the age of 10, Mike Harvey’s passion was RADIO. Filing records at his local station and building his first “illegal” radio station in his bedroom (the neighbors’ complaints shut him down in just a few days) was just the beginning of Mike’s career! Anxious to hear more “rock & roll music,” Mike built his own receiver by stringing a “spider web” of copper antenna wire throughout the neighborhood roofs and tree-tops. It worked! And his ingenuity allowed Mike to receive music from distant rock & roll stations throughout the country where now-famous disk jockeys influenced him. On his 16th birthday, Mike received his Radio Operator’s License, and that same day, applied to the local radio station for a disk-jockey job…. and became “The Teen Time” DJ after school…. for a whopping $20/week!
Mike is well known around all of central Florida including work with many Orlando stations and has been broadcasting his evening Mike Harvey shows to over 100 stations for over 20 years. Now Mike brings the Mike Harvey Shows to 98.5 The Beach, broadcasting nation wide from The Beach studios and taking your requests on the Beachline 321-242-9850

General Manager, Corporate Executive, and Station Owner
Years of experience “behind the desk” have made him keenly aware of what it takes to develop the “bottom line.” Not content with merely performing and programming, Mike became a “turnaround” specialist for ailing stations in medium and major markets, and, as General Manager, created top-rated performers in a variety of formats like 3WS – Pittsburgh, KSOL – San Francisco, WHAM – Rochester, and WFTL – Ft. Lauderdale.
In the 80’s, Mike joined legendary research specialist Bill Moyes in creating the Transtar Radio Networks … the FIRST satellite-delivered programming service in the world! As Vice President of Programming and Operations, Mike designed, built and managed the network’s formats which still operate today under the banner of the Westwood One Radio Networks. While running Transtar in Los Angeles, Mike launched “SuperGold Saturday Night”, which quickly became America’s favorite syndicated weekend show. Over the past 20+ years, Mike has evolved the presentation and music format and extended the winning concept to 6 nights a week as “The Mike Harvey Shows.”
Recognizing the current economic trend by many stations to abandon competitive night-time programming by resorting to voice-tracking or total automation, Mike continues to dedicate himself to radio’s success! How? By designing a completely unique Daily show, Mike draws audiences back to local radio with the fully customized “The Mike Harvey Show.” Weaving his magic as a pioneer and innovator, this new LIVE LOCAL show is the “buzz” among classic hits, oldies, and AC stations!
