This Sunday night, May 11th, 2014, we catch up with Central Illinois music legend Mike Isenberg !! Show starts at 8 pm CST..... Mike joins us at 8:15 pm CST !!

Growing up in Pekin, back in the 60's, Mike Isenberg found himself smack dab in the middle of a music scene that spawned groups such as R.E.O., Head East & Dan Fogelberg. While Mike kept himself busy with projects like The Mods, The Blues Feeling and other local bands, his greatest success of the time was yet to come.

That success came as vocalist & guitarist for The Jets. Isenberg is best known as the leader and founder of The (Pekin, Illinois-based) Jets. The Jets original roster included Isenberg, Graham Walker, Greg Clemons, Greg Wilson, and Randy Kohtz. The band’s premiere single “Be For Me” written by Isenberg in 1968 and released on the Marigold Records label in 1973 climbed to number 13 on the local WIRL chart.

Isenberg and The Jets also were included on a double album sampler on Twin Tone Records in 1979. This led to the band racking up two hits—Isenberg’s “Lover Boy” and “Paper Girl”. The album was digitally remastered and released on CD more recently. Isenberg also earned the WWCT FM 106 Basement Tapes Award in 1982.

Fast forwarding to today, Mike finds himself living in Hollywood,California. Still writing & recording, Mike's gift to the world keeps on giving. This Suday night we'll talk to Mike about " The Good 'Ol Days " as well as the music industry " machine " . Mike will also share some great insight on what it takes for bands today to make it in the music business. You'll be surprised just how easy it really is !!

Join us this Sunday night starting at 8 p.m. CST for a " MUST NOT MISS " episode of The Big Perm Show !!
