About Steve Black:

I grew up in Flushing Township, Michigan (out in the sticks) between Flint and Saginaw. I have been on the air for 20 years, 19 years in Detroit at legendary stations including Z-Rock, The Bear, The Ted Nugent Morning Show and WRIF.

I have always done specialty shows, from “Studio Z” to the very popular “Listening Room”, to “Ultimate Albums”. I’ve always made an attempt to show radio listeners that there is much more to the craft of making music that meets most of their ears.
All of my past shows and radio experience have led me to launching The Chop Shop in 2004. The Chop Shop and Chop Shop Classic are guitar shows for all rock & roll fans. It’s not just about the fastest players, or the heaviest, or the most technical, but rather a celebration of all those who have chosen a life centered around the instrument. Between the 2 shows all styles of rock guitar is included.
While not working in the syndicated radio world, I am also the Program Director/Mid-day personality for 103.9 The Fox in Flint.

I have an exceptional wife named Gina and 2 step kids that I love dearly. And the home life wouldn’t be complete without the 2 dogs and a cat.
