Steve Labenz

Growing up in suburban Detroit, Steve’s earliest memories are of Motown, blues and rock coming from his ever-present radio. 

While in high school, Steve worked at Cousino High School’s WPHS radio and interned at the legendary (and now defunct) WABX in Detroit.  

Landing a job as a roadie for The Sugarcubes, Steve moved to Iceland with the band and earned his permanent radio operator’s license through a correspondence course he saw advertised on a napkin. A chance at his dream job brought Labenz back to the U.S., and he did the morning farm report on a Waxahachie, Texas, station for 17 years while he raced flat-track motorcycles in his spare time. 

He now takes his helmet off long enough to do middays from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday and Sunday afternoon drive time at Greatest Hits 98.7 WFGR.

New Movies (This Week): ‘American Sniper,’ ‘Big Eyes,’ ‘The Interview,’ ‘Into The Woods,’ ‘Selma’ and ‘Unbroken’ [Video]

This is the week when "The Interview" was going to be released, but some hackers infiltrated Sony Pictures Entertainment's computers, made some threats and got the farce about an assassination plot against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un by two American journalists -- starring Seth Rogen and James Franco -- canceled.

Well, actually, Sony Pictures Entertainment now says it is going to release "The Interview" in limited theatrical release on Dec. 25. Whatever.

Either way, there are still plenty of other films coming out on Christmas Day (Thursday): about a Navy S.E.A.L. sniper, a painter who ran into legal troubles and rediscovered herself, a witch involved with characters from children's stories, the civil rights marches of the 1960s and a U.S. Olympian captured by the Japanese during World War II
