b) Bill McAllister
Bill grew up in the metropolis that is Warren, Michigan. Bill also lived in Detroit, Royal Oak, Hamtramck, Troy and Canton. (No, he don’t keep getting kicked out). Bill likes to play…ok, watch sports because of the Tigers, Lions, Red Wings and Pistons, there is nowhere else I would rather live. Detroit has the greatest, most loyal fans in the world.
Bill is also a big fan of The Discovery Channel and National Geographic. He enjoys Detroit sports history and can locate almost any intersection in the tri-county area (this is what happens when you have lots of time on your hands).
Bill has been with 97.1 since 2000. First as WKRK and now with The Ticket. “I love our station because unlike other stations, you’re going to get REAL opinions and dialogue from us and our listeners.” Not to mention, you can hear at least one of the following; the Tigers, Lions, Pistons and Red Wings almost every day of the year.
Bill lives in Canton with his wife Danielle and their pooch Teaspoon.

Sunday August 2nd, 1970 was a long time ago, so long in fact, I hadn’t entered the 2nd grade yet. But, it’s a date I will always remember, my very first Tigers game.
Not sure which song was his favorite (I would go with King Of Rock) but it got me thinking about what song most reminded me of my high school years
We quickly learned that you do not talk crap about Arthur Curry, a.k.a. The King Of The Seven Seas/Aquaman, especially when our next caller was none other than the director Zack Snyder.
97.1 The Ticket morning show host Bill McAllister got to realize part of a childhood dream. He visited the Public Service Institute at Macomb Community College to participate in some of the firefighter training taking place at the facility.
If you didn’t know already, we got a ping pong table at the CBS Radio building recently. A bracket tournament was organized to coincide with the NCAA tournament March Madness.
Like most kids, for me, Christmas was the greatest day of the year.
Stoney, Bill stopped by the WWJ Radiothon For THAW to encourage listeners to call in to make a donation with a rousing ballad. The Plastic Oh No Band graced the volunteers with a tune about helping our fellow Detroiters pay their heat bills.
Must be nice to be Bruce Willis.
It’s that time of year where I don my finest kilt and wool socks and head out to the Highland Games at Greenmead Historical Park in Livonia on August 2nd and 3rd.
Having never been to the annual monstrosity that is Comic Con in San Diego, I was more than impressed with the whole presentation.
