Mike Brilhart just celebrated 40 years in radio! He started in radio at Dundalk High, WDSH-AM in September of 1981. In 1982 that station moved to 96.7 FM with Top-40 music during the day and specialty music at night with 97Underground Friday and Saturday. 97 Underground, played classic rock, and classic hard rock (which really wasn't that old then) and also newer rock. This is 2 years before any classic rock format appeared in the U.S.
Mike was the first to play Metallica on FM when Jon Zazula of Megaforce Records sent him a cassette of Metallica in Summer '82. Mike was also the first to play Motley Crue on FM regularly. After he graduated from Dundalk he still did shows on 97 Underground.
In Spring of 1987 - brought 97Underground back as a successful hard rock format. 
First DJ to play Guns and Roses, Child's Play and so many more on FM. He has also worked as a DJ in several prominent Baltimore-area night clubs such as Network, Hammerjacks, and The Zu. From 1996-2003 he was on 104.3 The Colt and since 2003 he has been on 100.7 The Bay. 

He has received top Baltimore radio DJ awards from MD Musician and the Baltimore City Paper and was #2 radio DJ in Baltimore for 2020 in a readers poll of The East County Times and Dundalk Eagle readers.
