Fan club? I think not. His still-inflated ego would probably have you believe he has one, though.

Actually he was just a kid from high school who used to call Java Joel's night show and guest host the top 8. He called so many times that Java referred to him as Mike "Radio Boy" from Schaumburg. Well fast forward a few months after Java got fired, Silly Jilly and Chris Kelly brought him into Kiss and helped him get an internship with Mack because they felt he had passion. This is where the mistakes began.

His other job was assistant managing a bowling alley throughout this intern time. He planned to attend Columbia for radio.

So he worked his ass off and Mack thought he had passion too, so he eventually got hired as a part-timer - to do infrequent production work and help out in promotions. Eventually he would be given the opportunity to occasionally fill in on overnight weekend airshifts. At this time he also became really good friends with Drex and Drex would request that Radio Boy help him by filling in as board-op when Petey took off.

Anyway months and months later, Radio Boy got busted by the Carol Stream Police for soliciting and attempting to meet what he thought was a 13-year old boy, but was really an undercover sting. He was fired by Kiss FM and is currently in the process of that criminal trial.

The "info" on him now spinning in gay clubs is quite interesting because anyone who knew Radio Boy knew he was always such a vocal homophobe, frequently refering to gays in a derogatory manner, yet in the meantime he was soliciting underage boys and desiring to spin in gay clubs.

Everything about the Radio Boy situation is sad.

: What is the backround on radioboy. I keep hearing his name like he is some sort of iconic god in radio. what station was he at? I asuming by the mention above that Man's country is some sort of bar for men only? If so, is this guy big in the gay community and that is why everyone is so interested in him? I would see some various postings on other boards and was just wondering. sounds like the guy has a fan club of sorts@
