Brad Wheeler and Mickey Raphael KRCL Studios

Thank you @badbradwheeler for the heads up about Mickey Raphael’s visit to the @KRCLradio radio studios in Salt Lake City today to talk about the upcoming Grammys Award Show on January 26, 2014.  Brad Wheeler is  host of the public radio’s afternoon show, “Drive Time with Brad Wheeler “, 2 – 5 p.m. MST, and Mickey Raphael is a good friend of Brad, and has been on the show many times.  Brad plays the harmonica, too, so they share that musical talent.

To stream the show live tomorrow and listen to the show(at 4:00 p.m. MST), visit the KRCL Radio’s website. If you have a question for Mickey or Brad, here’s Brad’s e-mail address; no guarantees, but if you have a question, send it off to them.



Brad”s a busy guy, I think his Twitter profile says it pretty well:

I love when Carol Sidoran goes to a Willie Nelson & Family show because I know, whenever possible, she will take pictures and share them with the rest of us fans. And they are always great. Thanks, Carol, was fun to see you in Las Vegas.

Brad Wheeler and Mickey Raphael
KRCL Studios

Mickey Raphael joined Brad Wheeler as host on his Radio Show on Utah Public Radio on August 28, 2013, and thanks so much to Brad for the good news that the show was recorded, and he sent a link!

This is a great show; you will love it.  This is Mickey’s 4th time to join Brad in his Salt Lake studio, and you the show is so enjoyable because you can feel the mutual respect and friendship.  They love music and they love to talk about it.    The music that DJ Mickey selected were theme-related, kind of a seven-degrees-of-separation thing, artists and musicians musically connected.  It’s a great selection of music, some I was familiar with and some I was happy to be introduced to.

I couldn’t figure out how to embed their player here (I gotta get out the door and head to work),  so just go to the Studio’s page here.

Heads up Mickey Raphael Fans! He’s taking over Brad Wheeler’s Drive Time Radio Show Today

Thursday, August 29th, 2013


Mickey Raphael will be guest host on Brad Wheeler’s radio show today, on Utah public radio station KRCL.   I guess it’s only fair, in as much as Brad took over Mickey’s job (for a few songs), at Willie Nelson’s Birthday Party/ West, Texas Fire Fighters Fund Raiser last April.  According to Brad, he was hanging out on stage with Mickey, when Mickey handed him his harmonica and told him to play on some gospel tunes.  (The guy can play, btw.)

Mickey Raphael will be  on at 4:00 mountain standard time today.     You do the math to figure out what that means to you.  The station streams it’s shows; to listen to Mickey today go to:

The name of the show is Drive Time with Brad Wheeler.  The radio is listener-supported, so feel free to make a donation to them, if you are so inclined.

And here’s the radio’s telephone number, if you want to try to call in and ask Mickey a question.  No promises!  It’s not a call in show, but who knows, maybe you can ask Mickey a question.  If anyone is upset and asks where you got the number, don’t give them my name, unless they are happy you called, then it’s okay.  KRCL -1-800-359-9191

And the e-mail:
