Loudwire Radio

 

Mike Sanders “The Sandman” started out life as a troubled child in a small Midwestern town, As he got older the rebellious attitude and smart mouth only got worse.  Really the only avenue that seemed perfect for him as far as a career goes was rock radio.  Now, 32 years later “The Sandman” has still got the rebellious ‘tude and smartass mouth.  “I love it that all the stuff that got me in trouble as a kid, keeps me employed as an adult”

Check him out hosting the new weekend show “Loudwire” which airs Sundays at 7pm.

“I hope you like the show” Sandman said as he turned and rode away on his 3 wheeled bicycle with a basket full of groceries.

You can send him comments or suggestions to sandman@loudwire.com

Obviously, the recording of the song played at Van Andel Arena isn’t a band-endorsed, audiophile-quality recording. However, even in such rough form there’s enough to make us very curious to hear the studio version of this track.
