 Boston is very much a 24-hour city, and Lowell native Michael Burns is here every night to provide company for anyone who's working that very late or very early shift, or just sleepless.  Michael began his radio career at WLLH - the same station that launched Ed McMahon of "The Tonight Show" fame. Michael actually worked with the man who had hired Ed years earlier.

Michael’s been the host of the Magic Nightshift for over 25 years now.  He also hosts Sunday Morning Country Oldies on Greater Media sister station Country 102.5.  Michael’s the perfect combination to keep you company in those wee hours.
