My first love in life has always been music, my best friend so to speak. At the age of four I started listening to The Beatles, that was in 1968. I was born in St. Paul, MN and have lived in Minnesota all of my life in spite of the fact that Winter is my mortal enemy. I started playing drums at the age of 12 and then soon moved on to Bass guitar followed by the Guitar, then sprinkle in some piano. I love to write and record my own music and love to do covers of my favorite songs.
I released my first album in 2012 titled “Waiting for Saturn” which was a dream come true at 48! I do believe that I was born 10 years to late, I have a true love for all things retro. I love most genres, staying close to music that creates imagery; so Beatles to Sabbath to Nick Drake to Pink Floyd, throw in Jane’s Addiction and all things Grunge, Stones to Simon & Garfunkel. To me doing a radio show is like writing songs, you get to be as creative as you like; which is why I love being a DJ for Barely Brothers.
MIKE CIRESI’S SHOWS
Lunar Sunrise is a show that features songs mainly in the Psychedelic realm or songs that paint sublime imagery. Songs played are mainly songs that you wouldn’t hear on a commercial radio station, it’s the Anti-Corp as I like to call it. You will also hear special features, such as a Vintage Commercial, The Magic BeatleBag and a Local Musician Spotlight. I also throw in the occasional “Bit” between songs to lighten things up or create a mood, never a dull moment. I am always willing to take requests too! So ride the Interwaves with me won’t you please…
Between Dusk and Dawn
My Between Dusk and Dawn show was created for the sole purpose of making a “themed” based show. My goal is to play songs that you wouldn’t here on corporate radio but from time to time they slip in the mix. It’s really “the sky is the limit” and it’s exciting for me to come up with a new theme each week. As always I do take requests and am always open to suggestions. Come along for the ride won’t you?
Each new show will be available two weeks after it’s original air-date.
