Yep, to the day, actually. Through four presidents, lots of horror and strife, as well as much joy.
Congrats Sir. I hope that you stay with us longer. I love listening to you everyday and you are an inspiration! For the last four years, you kept me sane and engaged more than ever, thank you so much for everything that you do!
Congratulations! You've made life more tolerable, for me, at any rate, by your non-stop defense of the truth. Keep up the great work!
Congratulations!! Mike, my husband and I have been longtime fans since your early days on OutQ. You have the uncanny talent of taking complicated issues and explaining them in such a way as to make them easily digestible to the general public! I thought Sirius was brilliant when they moved you to the large Progress political platform! Your incite and clarity made the four Trump years bearable: You put all that craziness into perspective. We had the pleasure of meeting you in person in DC at a book signing at Politics and Prose, and we still have the photo of chatting with you. Thank you for your years of serving all Americans, not just LGBTQ! Here's to another 18 years in the public eye!
Happy 18th anniversary Michelangelo! I’ve been a listener since the OutQ days and you have kept me sane thru a lot of insanity. Thank you for everything that you’ve done, and continue to do. Here’s to many more years on SiriusXM!
Wow, 18 years!
I remember getting Sirius for the first time in 2012 and telling a political friend who worked for an NPR station what a great channel Progress was and he asked for the number.
I'm not sure when I first started listening to your program, but it was a treat and even if I was not at home during the day, I always listened to you On Demand.
Now, I enjoy reading your newsletter and seeing it when I wake up and read it as have my morning mocha latte and today congratulate you on your longevity on the air! It has been especially comforting to me and so many others during the Trump era and continues to be in the Biden era with your on-air charisma and humor.
I started listening to you when XM merged with Sirius. I remember it being during the 2008 election, same time the POTUS channel started. I remember the 4 hours of show, and I still miss the weekly Turkey, Gassy, Angel awards and the reading listener comments once a week.
My favorite times are when you put the trolls and trumpers in their place .
Thank you and congratulations! When I heard you all those years ago on OutQ radio, I thought, at last, an informed, temperate and clever voice! Keep on truckin’, we need you as much now as then!
Congratulations! In three years, you'll be legal to drink during the show! ...or you can start early.
Feliz Aniversario! I started with you in the summer of 2012 via OutQ. Thank you so much for all your teachings, wisdom and power. You are one of my heroes. ❤️🏳️🌈
Congrats Michaelangelo, couldn't have made it through the past 18 years without ya!! 😊💖
Happy Anniversary to you and to us - your listeners! What a grand partnership it's been. I'm relatively new to SiriusXM - maybe only 6 years or so - but I enjoyed your columns in the Huffington Post. When I found your show on Progress, I found the same level of engagement and knowledge that showed through your journalism. Thank you!
Michelangelo congratulations on your anniversary and thank you for your voice! Time and again we hear you take down the haters of freedom and democracy in this country. And you have always stood for the decency and respect that all members of the LGBTQ population. Here's to 18 more years of your critically important voice! I salute you as a friend and an incredible defender of our rights. You're the best!
Happy 18th On-Air Anniversary!
I bought my very first new car in 2011 and it came with SiriusXM. OutQ was my station of choice for commuting to and from work, and naturally I found your afternoon shows just the thing to keep me informed after a long day. I've called in a couple of times and even won a book once, and have been listening ever since. I remember the Forrester interview. I mean, who could ever forget that?
But the one time your voice became a lifeline was the night of the 2016 election when it became apparent Trump won. I'm sorry but my memory fails me with the name of the person you were on with, but the sound of your voices when it became apparent there was no path for Hillary was well beyond sobering. It was all my fears coming true. And if we helped you in any way by being your audience, rest assure you did an incredible job keeping us all sane then and for the the duration.
So I hope you're celebrating tonight. You should! Happy to have been a listener for part of your journey.
Congratulations! I started with you when you came on Progress and have been with you ever since. Your show is hands down the best political talk show anywhere. Thanks for all you do.
Congratulations, Mike!! So many good years! I started listening to you way back on OutQ in perhaps 2005 or 2006. You are one of the people I turn to to help make sense of our politics. And you are my hero. Thank you! And to many more years!
