Radio is his passion! Classic Rock is his fashion! Paul Buck takes over our Midday air from 10a-3p weekdays on Classic Rock the BEAR! But you can call him "UNCLE BUCK"... He's a firm believer, it's all about the music and the people of the community who love it!
Uncle Buck is a graduate of Specs Howard School of Broadcast Arts and a member of their Hall of Fame. He grew up in Dearborn Michigan and has been on Detroit airwaves since 1991. He’s earned multiple MAB - Michigan Association of Broadcasters awards in radio production.
The nickname came from the movie Uncle Buck, but unlike the big-screen, carefree bachelor, our Uncle Buck is married to the beautiful Kelly with 2 boys. As a matter of fact, they got marital advice from Greg Allman; backstage at the Fillmore Detroit, where Uncle Buck was introducing the Allman Brothers Band. While the legendary rocker delighted over the news of the couples soon to be nuptials, he said “Word of advice, never go to bed mad at each other”. After Allman turned to go on stage, Buck said to his fiancé Kelly, “We just got marital advice from a guy who was married to Cher for 9 days!” “They must have gone to bed mad”.
If you want to get to know Uncle Buck a little better, let’s start with… He’s a big Bruce fan. Has seen Springsteen every tour since 1978 and has the stories to go with it. He held Bruce’s ankle while he crowd-surfed, interviewed Little Steven from the E Street Band, but getting face to face with his idol has been elusive.
Buck likes bacon and bourbon too. Maybe a little too much. He’s a Spartan fan and cheers for the Lions, Tigers, and Pistons. In that order. He likes fishing, cooking, U.P. vacations, a good bowl of chili and surprisingly, he can carry a tune!
The BEAR is proud to say, “The Buck Stops Here”.
