Scott Michaels & Maggie Ford
Mornings 6-9 am
Scott and Maggie grew up and went to school together in Sioux City, Iowa. They met on the first day of 8th Grade in 1971. Scott was a nerdy class clown, while Maggie was the quiet, studious type who loved music and theater. Their first performance together was in a middle school musical.
Always friends, but never a “couple,” Scott and Maggie wound up in Junior Achievement together, working on a weekly student radio show sponsored by a local radio station. It was the first taste of real radio for them both, writing and producing features for the program, and even creating their own sound effects by breaking glass in a studio wastebasket. Heady times!
The two married in 1977. The radio station offered Scott a job, and he stayed behind the microphone for most of the rest of his life. Maggie became one of Birmingham’s top floral designers and wedding planners.
Through the years, they’ve taken just about every possible chance to perform together – in theater, radio, and the concert stage. The Super Mix Morning Show is their first daily show as a team, and it fulfills a lifelong dream for both. “At this point in our lives, we’re just having fun. We hope the listeners come along for the ride.”
I started my radio career on June 9, 1981. Since then I have programmed as well as held management roles at many awesome stations around the South. Besides handling my on-air duties these days I am also an audio engineer for several radio stations who trust my ear and experience to make them sound great. I love playing and talking to my audience the music that I love.
Ken was born at Jackson’s Hospital in Montgomery in 1957 to Parker Wilson and Annie M. Lyons. He lived in Montgomery, Mobile, Florala as well as Laurel Hill in Florida, where he graduated from high school in 1976.
