Musical Chairs host Michael Brooks came to Seattle from the East Coast more than 20 years ago. It didn't take long for Mike to become enthralled with the Northwest's nature and hospitality. He joined KING FM in the spring of 2007 and has enjoyed the return to his "radio roots." His first radio job was at a classical station in his hometown of Baltimore, Md.
