"The Quintessential Production Master"

-LA Radio People

 

"14 years ago when it was time to put jingles on KFWB in Los Angeles....we immediately turned to Michael and his parole officer----they came thru big time! In fact, those are STILL on KFWB ... 'giving us the world in 22 minutes.'"

Ken Beck
Director of News/Talk/Sports Programming-Entercom Communications

 

I have known Michael Sheehy for several years…and I’ve admired his voice even longer. In particular, for quite some time now, Michael has provided the voice-over for nearly every Sport Chalet radio spot we’ve produced. During that time, Sport Chalet has experienced tremendous sales volume and consistent growth. And frankly, every client campaign we have used Michael on has performed beyond our expectations. At The Right Angle, Inc., we are very proud to have contributed to the success stories of companies like Sport Chalet. And Michael Sheehy has played a key role in those successes.

"There’s a smoothness and comfort to Michael’s voice. Yet it’s still big enough to get the message across authoritatively."

"Perfectly in sync with the sound of Smooth Jazz today. It’s some of the best work we’ve heard."

"Michael is super! Whenever we've needed help with any of our projects... he and his guys have been here Johnny-on- he-spot ready to lend us a hand. We wouldn't think of calling anyone else... they do a superb job on anything they tackle. What impresses us most is not their knowledge of music ... but their hunger to learn more. He's one of a kind."

"Michael is an unquantifiable talent, his boundless abilities as a Producer/Editor/Voice Actor are truly astounding, not to mention the fact that he's a walking encyclopedia of songs, musicians and the music and radio industry. I wish my computer had that deep a database."

"Michael Sheehy has great musical vision. His productions are definitive and entertaining, seamlessly combining humor with content. I consider it a privilege to work with him."

"We use the station voice to make sure the call letter get across. One of our primary jobs, regardless of how much we think this is rocket science, is to tell people where they are so we can get credit for it. For those who want to convey an image for their radio station … using a station voice is a key element."

"He’s good (Sheehy),” thought Leary. “He’s an actor. And he plays with his throat like a stringed instrument. No, more than that, like a sexual organ."

Excerpt from “Neuropolitics”
by Timothy Leary 1977

 

"Michael is very easy to work with, if I need something right away, Michael has always been there to get it done. His sound is perfect for 97.9 The Breeze."  

Rob Riesen

"I cannot speak too highly of Michael.  He is a very creative person, has excellent musical taste and is a complete professional in all he does. He is a person of good character who is highly respected by all those who work for and with him. It was my hope he would be with CBS forever, but he chose to leave in 1983 to form his own business.  It was our great loss." 

Robert Nelson

"The end product is nothing short of spectacular! Many times I've listened to the station and can't tell whether it's a song or a jingle starting, the ultimate compliment. The production is top notch!"

"I said 'Go Crazy!', and Michael came back to me with just the maddest cuts I've ever heard, they formed the backbone of what we were doing.

"Sheehy is my kind of blah blah de blah blah and one of the blah blah blah............. ! When it comes to blah blah blah blah blah he's blah de blah blah de blah than a hot poker up the blah blah and probably both the blah & blah that I've ever known."

Danny Roy Young

"Once again, he has done it with a small budget and a whole lot of talent. Our newly produced jingles are yet another reason The Wave is Southern California's most unique sounding radio station."

"Working with Michael Sheehy is like working with Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis.  You get the smooth voice of Dean and the silly wit of Jerry".  Really, I have known and worked with Michael for almost 10 years and I trust him to provide the best in station voice and the best in Smooth Jazz imaging.  Michael will go through walls just to make sure you get want you need, when you need it!"

"Michael Sheehy is amazing.  Regardless of which side of the microphone he's working on, he's in total command of his craft. His creative sensibilities are boundless. My professional association with Michael goes back over 26 years and just when you think he can't get any better, he does."

"If I had just half of Michael’s production technique, I'd have to get up 30 minutes earlier each morning to wipe the lip prints off my bathroom mirror. His stuff is amazing. He gives the rest of us something to shoot for."

Zack Boles

Studio Z

"Michael Sheehy has created a library of 'theatre of the mind' IDs that add radio drama to the station’s overall sound. The IDs are key signature at the Wave, popular enough that they actually generate requests. Their purpose is two fold. First the IDs provide punctuation. They deliver our call letters and frequency. Secondly, they stick more effectively if they’re imaginative, a piece of theatre."

"Michael Sheehy... hummm,  where do I start. He is one of a kind, but I still can’t figure out what kind. 

Well, I’ll just say he’s an incredibly soulful dude who for many years has stuck his caring hands into the guts of the radio - to get to the heart of the matter for music's sake. The problem is, getting him over to my studio to bring the doggone thing back together again!"

Ellis Hall

Songwriter, Producer

"Michael Sheehy is one of those rare production experts who is well respected by leaders in all formats."
