JR Mitchell

I am the morning host and brand manager at Q-106.5, a two-time CMA Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year and one-time ACM Nominee for Small Market Personality of the Year. When not behind a mic on-air, you can find me DJing events all over Maine and also singing some of the songs you love to listen to on the radio. I was the male vocalist & Entertainer of the Year in both the Pine Tree State Country Music Association & DECMA (Downeast Country Music Association.) I can also be called a geek. If it's electronic -- from computers to the latest tablet to the most recent high-tech phone on the market -- I geek out on all of the above, but not too much of a geek that I don't LOVE sports! Football, baseball, hockey & NASCAR are just a few of my favorites. I have a soft spot in my heart for The Pine Tree Camp for Children and Adults with Disabilities and I love the Q-106.5 Pine Tree Camp Egg Ride for this reason. Family, community service, and music keeps JR sane ... well, as sane as a 'Breakfast Flake' can be!

Luke Bryan 300x200

New Music from Luke Bryan ‘That’s My Kind of Night’ is both Controversial and Catchy! It’s Today’s Fresh Track of the Day!

I remember the days that Luke Bryan came to the old Bangor Auditorium as an opening act for Sara Evans, and few people knew who he was. Then came 'Country Girl (Shake It For Me) and he became a superstar right before our eyes! Last summer, he and Jason Aldean were a force on the road, selling out venues all over the world, including here at Darling's Waterfront Pavilion! One year later, Luke is headlining his own tour, that will hit Bangor on August 31st, and again to a sold-out crowd! Now, with all the talk of the new style country that 'traditional' country folks aren't crazy for, with their favorite stars almost 'rapping' in their latest music, can Luke Bryan make it work in his new single 'That's My Kind of Night'? I think yes...what do you think??
