Celebrating 10 Years of ‘Night Trax’ with Michael Guyton

Professor Mike, a.k.a. Michael Guyton

He was allotted an overnight slot from 2 a.m. to 7 a.m., with the show officially launching on January 20, 2014. But his achievements don’t stop there: competing in bocce, basketball and bowling, Mike is a Special Olympics athlete, with two gold medals and one silver medal under his belt.

Radio broadcasting particularly enthused Michael – or more aptly, Professor Mike, as he is known on air – as he longed to incorporate music of the past, into the modern musical landscape. He focuses on an eclectic range of tracks and timeless hits recorded between the years of 1970 and 1989, using his own batch of LPs and 45s.

In order to satiate every listener’s musical appetite, Mike dabbles into different genres like rock, disco, R&B etc. “Night Trax” stands out as a revitalisation of late night live radio – employing a human voice to foster interactivity and fuel a connection that transcends airwaves.

Mike is like CKCU’s very own radio companion – ensuring that anyone who listens in is part of a community. While Guyton is both an athlete and radio host, he is above all an inspiring individual, who continues to champion positivity and inclusion through “Night Trax”.
