Founder / Host
Mitch has had the privilege of keeping Black Circle Radio on-air for the last 10 years. He is humbled by the outpouring of support that family, friends, and the vinyl community have shown Black Circle Radio. Currently, Mitch is re-organizing his entire record collection by ‘Feeling Wheel’ rather than ‘Genre’ to (hopefully) better express his current mental state through the broadcasts. He also holds a local Grand Champion score of 106,495,840 on a 2005, Stern, “The Sopranos” pinball machine.
DJ Crinkle has been the co-most of Black Circle Radio since 2012. What used to be a love for making burned CDs has turned into a love of picking out eclectic sets to spin. When not picking through vinyl, Crinkle is a Registered Dietician and a City of Muskegon City Commissioner. Some of the most spun records of her collection include: Destiny’s Child, Dolly Parton, No Doubt, Koko Taylor, the Dells, and The Ghostbusters Soundtrack.
Roclo was a fan of Black Circle Radio before being behind the turntables as a co-host. He literally just kept showing up. Thank goodness. With sets ranging from “A” to Weezer, Roclo shares his extensive music knowledge with BCR every week after he is finished with his other job as a Middle School Choir Teacher in the Mona Shores School District. He is also really good at running long distances at a moderate pace.
He has hosted his own programming. He has worked in commercial radio. He was raised Jehovah’s Witness. He is not shy about the fact that he was hired to BCR during Black History Month. He is the master of the faders. He is a ridiculously passionate person.
Of German and Dutch descent, Mike enjoys pineapple on his pizza. He knows a lot about Star Wars and could potentially grow a beard if the genetics were better. Mike has been learning and creating video content for about 10 years now. Happily shorter than Mitch, Mike understands that where we’re going, we don’t need roads.
Co-Host in Training
At just over 2 years old, Wiggles has managed to be on-air multiple times, snap more than one phono cartridge, have a record player in his nursery, and have a favorite record which is “Trolls – The Motion Picture Soundtrack”. In his free time he enjoys playing the recorder, reading books, and wanting snacks.
Co-founder of Electric Kitsch with partner Jessica McQuarter. Pries is a record store owner who specializes in Celestial Mechanics, Astro-Stellar Theology, and the Generative Principle, meaning creation out of nothing. Music, which encompasses all Seven Grand Laws, is also a language, and perhaps the most purest form of the Generative Principle. This is why he believes that music is the healing force of the Universe, and the pathway to understanding all other principles in life.
Record Label Expert
A music lover since before birth, Clint has been obsessed with records for as long as he can remember. Leaning especially towards 60’s and 70’s pop/rock, (but not exclusively) Clint feels very fortunate to have grown up in the 80’s, where his record player was his very favorite toy. Shout-out to: RSO, ATCO, VERTIGO, ARTISA, BUDDAH, KAMA SUTRA, IRS, and CASABLANCA.
