Bumper to Bumper Radio Phoenix AZWe go on the air every week to get this message out.  You owe it to yourself and to everyone else on the road to keep your car in great shape.  Your safety and your well being depend on it.  There is a lot you can do by yourself.  That is much of what we talk about on our show. But as soon as you know you are stepping outside of your comfort zone - find a qualified mechanic.  You will need to get educated, and be prepared to trust an expert when you find one.

Our key staff members have spent their whole lives in the world of auto repair and maintenance.  We want to share that expertise with you in an open dialog.  Please join us.


Michael and his family have been in Arizona since 1969.

Growing up in North Scottsdale when it was “way out in the boonies” he enjoyed riding the family horses, playing sports with his buddies and living a lifestyle that included getting to know all the local family owned & operated businesses in the community. He graduated from ASU and is a raving Sun Devil Fan.

Michael’s professional career after college included working for a major food manufacturer that eventually led him back to Arizona where he dove into the broadcast media community, as Director of Sports Marketing and General Sales Manager at the heritage News/Talk KTAR 620 and Sports ESPN 860, now News/Talk 92.3 FM/AZ Sports 98.7 FM.

In 2000, he created MBH Marketing, a boutique marketing agency, which specializes in providing expert, full-service, marketing services for their clients with a focus on B2C and B2B relationship building.

MBH has also owned and operated several successful local “niche” programing weekend radio shows including the Bumper to Bumper Radio Show and Bunker to Bunker THE Golf Show heard on News/Talk KTAR 92.3 FM and AZ Sports 98.7 FM.

Owner: Virginia Auto Service/Import Car Specialists

ASE Certified Technician, Accredited Automotive Manager

Matt is the host of our weekly Bumper to Bumper Radio Show. He started working on cars when he was 16 years old. He enjoyed it so much that he began to dream about owning his own shop someday.

Matt’s opportunity came up when he happened upon the building where Virginia Auto Service is currently located. The shop was boarded up and in major disrepair. To anyone else, it looked like a disaster, but to Matt, it looked like his dream.

A little determination and a lot of elbow grease enabled Matt to open Virginia Auto Service in 1995. He was only 24 years old.

From the beginning, Matt’s philosophy was to “Do the right thing, and do it with the highest quality.” It’s because of that philosophy that Virginia Auto Service has been able to weather the many challenges that presented themselves. From down economies, to a fire that almost destroyed the entire business, Virginia Auto Service has made it through the hardest of times.
