About

“We’re here for a good time, not a long time…”

Joel “The Party Dude” Morgan

Joel “The Party Dude” Morgan has been a Detroit area institution as far back as anyone should want to remember. Raised on the East Siiide, Joel Morgan’s roots run deep in the rock and roll community, but there’s so much more to Joel…. let’s peel back the layers of the Onion Joel.
Joel “furever” Morgan and his lovely wife, Kim, love animals. They hold a particularly strong love for squirrels and the almighty groundhog. Joel shed a tear watching Twiggy, the waterskiing squirrel. Joel and Kim take vacation every Groundhog Day so that they can enjoy the morning festivities together. Additionally, Joel asked Kim to be his mate at the primate exhibit at the Detroit Zoo.

Joel also loves legos. He has put together some works of art that would make lesser men break from the anxiety of SO MANY pieces that are all the same color.

Joel is wicked smart on movie facts and trivia. He can quote a ton of movies, especially “An Officer and a Gentleman.” Joel is also proficient with a variety of accents and impersonations.

Some of Joel’s best tales include how The Rolling Stones ended up playing his wedding reception and the awkward tale of his first game of truth or dare.

In summation, Joel “Sugar Bear” Morgan is… to quote Winston Churchill, “a riddle,wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.” With 20+ years experience on the streets of the greater metro Detroit area, you will not find a friendlier face than that of Joel Morgan.

Megan Murphy

Megan grew up in a musical household, so she always had a love for music and radio. Her on-air radio journey began in the early 90’s during her senior year of high school when she enrolled in the Media Broadcasting program, which quickly led to working weekends at a radio station in Northern Michigan. Megan has had the pleasure of working in radio ever since!  Megan also worked in TV for years, both on-air and behind the scenes, but her passion for music has always brought her back to the radio airwaves.

She cherishes her record player, which belonged to her father.

Megan’s vinyl collection includes Bob Seger, Paul Simon, Joan Jett, Ozzy, Alice Cooper, and lots of hair bands, just to name a few.

She loves helping people and animals! Megan volunteers at the Hospitality House in Commerce and support local animal rescues and shelters. Her and her husband Dane adopted their two adorable cats, Lindy Lou and Connor, from Shelter to Home rescue in Wyandotte.

Attending concerts, exploring Detroit, nature hikes, Harley rides with her hubby, cleaning up local parks, bonfires, time with friends and family, Detroit Red Wings (especially Tyler Bertuzzi) and hockey fights are a few of Megan’s favorite things!

 

Faryn “The Fashion Killer” Branch

The mystery beauty behind the camera with a love for jean jackets!

Born and raised on the West Side of Detroit, the daughter of a talented musician who loves screaming guitars and the smooth sounds of 90’s R&B. Music has lived in Faryn’s roots since birth, growing up watching her dad perform with his guitars; stories of him touring with Chairman of the Board sparked her interest in speaking in front of a microphone. Faryn has always loved speaking in front of crowds, she hosts live events around Michigan… everything from Wedding Receptions, Proms, Bar Mitzah’s and Block Parties.

Although she loves public speaking, she also adores being the eyes and ears behind the scenes as well putting her Specs Howard skills in many arenas! Faryn loves what she does and loves where she is from. Meeting new fresh faces and putting smiles on them are what make it worth it.

Just throw in a few terrible dad jokes and random dancing and you are best friends…OH! and don’t forget the food! The best part of doing City Of The Week for Faryn is trying all the local restaurants showing appreciation to businesses who support their communities. All in all, Faryn is the “Quiet Storm” not seen very often but always heard and on the go!

“Much love, See you in your city!” ~Faryn
