Dave Gibson dropped out of Temple University and moved to New York City for two years to tour as a professional rock drummer. Then in 2006, he returned to Philly and needed an internship to graduate, which landed him on The John DeBella Morning Show. After surviving the gauntlet of gags, man-on-the-street interviews and stunts, he solidified himself as a full-time member of the show. Dave enjoys the balance of working in the city but retreating to the woods of Quakertown, where he lives with his wife and two sons. Aside from audio production, his hobbies all involve shooting: photography, hunting and golf. You can hear him weekday mornings with DeBella from 6-9am and Saturday mornings when he hosts “The Hangover Show” from 6-11am.
Cyndy Drue grew up outside Philadelphia in Worcester, Pa listening to the “boss jocks” on WFIL. She had a radio show at Centenary College in New Jersey, her first job at WSAN in Allentown, and eventually landed at her dream station, WMMR from 1983-1996. One of her favorite perks of the job is getting to interview the artists. But if only she hadn’t turned down Bono’s dinner invitation back in 1980….She loves playing all the classic rock on WMGK Saturdays 11am-4m. Cyndy writes a blog on WMGK.com as Event Reporter. To find out more about her, check out her website www.cyndydrue.com.

He went through Beaver Falls, Pa., Pittsburgh, Dayton, and Madison, Wis. before returning to Philly.

Classic Rock is his music and he has more than 300 concert ticket stubs to prove it.

T Morgan, a Philly Radio legend, is considered to be the father of Classic rock in Philly. In 1967, the young DJ was somehow able to convince a Philly station to play a new brand of music that included artists like: The Doors, Cream, The Who, Jefferson Airplane, etc. Besides his time on the airwaves, he was a record producer and has been associated with many name artists. In time, his love for Classic Rock brought him to WMGK. With his vast knowledge of music, he has helped write research and perform many of the famous weekend specials on WMGK.

Her favorite Rita’s water ice flavor is banana, she owns every episode of MacGyver on DVD, and is internationally known for making the world’s best chocolate chip cookies.
Chris Gordon (The Viking) has been a highly sought after session and performing guitarist, recording, touring and teaching for over twenty five years all over the country. Originally from DelCo, Chris joined the MGK family after his band the Mad Trio, blew away the judges and powered through one classic rock hit after another in the 2017 Houseband contest. Chris gets his golden pipes from his late, great father, Jim Gordon (WPEN News) and his radio chops studying with our amazing MGK air staff. You can hear him doing the hang on the radio during the overnights and weekends. Stop by and say, “How Ya Doin?” to Chris at a MGK event or a Mad Trio gig.
Paul was born and raised here in Philadelphia. Concerts he’s been to include LIVE AID at JFK, tons of Spectrum and Vet Stadium shows—Pink Floyd, Rolling Stones, and Guns ‘N Roses.

Ecstatic to be on the air in the hometown after growing up (well, he hasn’t grown up yet) on Philadelphia radio listening to radio legends—John Debella, Debbi Calton, and Andre Gardner. Paul’s family has been Eagles season ticket holders back to the Franklin Field days…and bleeds Eagles Green. E-A-G-L-E-S!!!!
