Preston and Steve have been on morning radio in Philly since the 90s and have been #1 in ratings for fifteen years straight, but not many people know that in the 1980s, Steve was a stand-up comic before he got into radio.

He’s had quite the career, and he was more than happy to share it all!Pat House is a nationally-touring comedian based out of Philadelphia.

His first job was dancing in a pink bear suit at a Bar Mitvah. He was hooked.Since then Michael has carved a unique niche in entertainment.

While generally convivial, he is most fun after coffee.
