THE END OF AN ERA.

THE DISMANTLING AND MOVING CONTINUES!

So with a mighty bang, the live era of Mark & Walt in the Morning from studios in the original Marquette Mall ended this morning.  OK, it was more of a solid “thud” more than a bang, but you get the point, I’m sure.  After doing thousands of shows together from the venerable Marquette Mall studios, the next chapter of the show and the Great Lakes Radio will unfold at our new location in the Superior Lanes building in Marquette Township.  As a result, tomorrow’s show will be a pre-recorded “best of” show because of the dismantling of the old studio for relocation of certain parts to the new studios.  I have to admit, the leaving of the Marquette Mall after 13 years is a bit surreal, but we simply have outgrown our space and we have to move!

SAY “GOODNIGHT”, GRACIE!

GOOFUS IN HIGH GEAR IN THE STRIPPED DOWN SUNNY STUDIO!

In typical Mark and Walt fashion, the final day was marked with some reminisces about the past 12-13 years or so, good strong coffee and a visit from the world-famous Ambassador of Goodwill from Negaunee, the illustrious GOOFUS and his polka-cello.  He sent us off with a rousing and patriotic version of “God Bless America” and his   blessings for our move.  He also moved into the Mark & Walt in the Morning history books as our last in-studio guest in the Marquette Mall studios.  Congratulations, Goof, and thanks for the fine song and all of your support over the years!

MOVIN’…MOVIN’…MOVIN’!
