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.
Champ Summers, who played for the Tigers from ’79-’81, died Thursday after a 2 1/2 year battle with kidney cancer.
I like beer. And I especially like craft beers and microbrews so I’m going to be heading out to the Michigan Brewers Oktoberfest this Sunday, October 7th at Canterbury Village in Lake Orion.
