J Mike is a firm believer that when you ask for advice from the man upstairs, you better be ready to hear what he has to say.
In 2019, he found his DJ career at a crossroads. He’d just been told they “were making a change and he was it” with his DJ job at Big Texas in Spring.
He returned to his truck and asked “Lord, what am I going to do now?” The answer came with a scan of the radio dial.On a whim he landed on a station which was advertising for people to start their own podcast. To further his lifelong love of Texas music, in July 2019, he launched Dance Time in Texas, a weekly countdown of the top Texas Red Dirt songs packing the dance floors. The weekly radio show is produced from his home on Lake Conroe and distributed to 35 markets in the US as well as stations in England, Ireland, Italy, Brazil and Germany. Each week he compiles a list of the top Texas Red Dirt songs that are popular on the dance floor. He also interviews various Texas musicians, has a segment called “Rewind” where he plays a song that maybe hasn’t been played in a while and gives information on upcoming shows for the Texas artists. He also provides a weekly update for the CDX Nashville’s Traction Texas newsletter. CDX Nashville is one of the largest distribution companies that provide music to over 2000 radio stations.
