Part of the Smith and Sam morning show, “Gen Z” Sam is the youngest DJ on KRSP in over a decade! Sam grew up in Utah listening to the ARROW with her Dad and has been in love with classic rock ever since. When she isn’t busy babysitting our morning DJ, Jon Smith, she is a nurse and avid dog mom. Not only is she a nurse but also founder of the SLC Pat Benatar fan club. She enjoys hiking, jamming out at concerts and traveling with her girlfriends. As ABBA says, she is “the dancing queen, young and sweet only seventeen“ – well 25, but that’s basically the same thing.
Monday – Friday 11AM – 3PM
Sue Kelley’s name is synonymous with Utah radio and brings over 25 years of music passion to KRSP. In fact, the Arrows’ rock and roll heritage runs through her veins as she was with the Arrow from its inception on Valentine’s Day 1993. When she is not listening to, reading about, or searching for music on vinyl, she is hitting live shows, snowboarding and spending time with her husband and daughter.
Gary “G Man” Michaels
Monday – Friday 3PM – 7PM
Hi! Gary Michaels here with a few things about myself. I am from Utah and grew up in a radio family, so I guess you could say I have been in radio my whole life. When I am not working I am at home with my awesome family! I have 5 kids so there is never a dull moment at my house. Thank goodness for my great wife Kristine, who is also a full-time nurse.
I really love to cook and I love watching the Food Network & the Cooking Channel. There is something relaxing about watching other people cook. Grilling is one of my favorite ways to cook especially on my Traeger grill.
Some fun things I like to do are play golf, hockey, snow and water ski, camping, fishing and boating. I am a big fan of buying local. It helps support our local economy.
Monday – Friday 7PM – 11PM
I’m home-grown right here in the land of Zion-Salt Lake City, born on Friday the 13th! I’ve been in this crazy radio business since the beginning of time! I started out sweeping floors and emptying the trash here at KRSP AM/FM in 1967. One night, when I was 14, I decided to jump on the air and read the news. It didn’t go well when the boss heard me. But hey, I’m still here playin’ the Classic Rock on 103.5 The Arrow!
I still like to spin vinyl albums on my home turntable by some of my favorites, including The Beatles, Boston, Eagles, Pink Floyd, Journey, Led Zeppelin and The Beach Boys. I still have “Meet the Beatles” album that my Mom bought me at Albertson’s in 1964. Price: $3.99. Meeting Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson are on my bucket list.
Since I’m a car guy, I’ll watch most anything on the Motor Trend Channel.
Some of my favorite movies include American Sniper, Lone Survivor, Caddyshack, Christmas Vacation, Top Gun, Sandlot and Field of Dreams-because I’m a baseball fan too. Go St. Louis Cardinals Baseball! My other favorite sport is college football! Go Utes, Cougars, Aggies and Wildcats!
Bo found his way to Utah on a runaway Mardi Gras float straight out of New Orleans. He spent most of his radio career in the deep south broadcasting all along the Gulf Coast. Bo fell in love with Utah while taking long distance motorcycling trips starting back in 1999. With so many great mountain roads available he finally decided to move here in 2017 to be able to enjoy them year-round!
Bo lucked into radio in 1981 when he took a shift at his college campus radio station. “I was terrible but I knew this is what I wanted to do – I was hooked.” He enthusiastically adds, “I love working for the best radio and TV company on the planet.” So, next time you find yourself passing through the little Swiss town of Midway, Utah be on the lookout for a guy with bugs in his teeth from smiling so much while riding his motorcycles.
A self-proclaimed radio geek! Blair says radio started out being a release for his class clown antics from his younger days.

Blair also does voice over work and has been heard on numerous commercials and promo’s running coast to coast. In his spare time Blair loves to ski, camp, hike, cook and work out.
