The Mike McGavel Jones Show
Have you got a passion for auctions? Are you an aspiring auctioneer? Or maybe even a veteran of the chant? If you’ve got a love for the auction business, you’ve come to the right place!
Nicknamed “McGavel,” master auctioneer Mike Jones interviews different guest every Monday on his show ‘The Mike McGavel Jones Show’. Coming from humble beginnings in a small Texas town give Jones a unique perspective interviewing a wide variety of guests ranging from fashion expert Victoria Snee to real estate broker Nick Bristow. Jones now serves as the full-time President of United Country Auction Services and as a certified instructor at America’s Auction Academy.
The Mike McGavel Jones Show premiered at Real News Communications on August 27, 2018 and Jones has recorded thirty-seven shows since then. In his inaugural episode Jones discussed the exhilarating experience of bidding at an auction compared to buying things offline or straight from a store. Jones strongly believes that the art of auction is not going anywhere, and explains exactly how he found his own foothold in the industry.
On a more recent show, A Passion for Painting Episode 36, Jones interviewed Lance Brown, an artist known for his performance speed paintings that spread the gospel. Brown always had a passion for drawing, inspired by his mothers artistic ability. After high school Brown earned a degree in Graphic Design and got a job with Dr. Pepper after graduation. Initially Brown enjoyed his career as a graphic designer, seeing his designs for Dr. Pepper in big stadiums and on billboards. Several years later he started to get burnt out on his routine and missed the creative outlet he sought out as a child. Seeking inspiration Brown started to experiment with painting, and after building his skills submitted a painting of Christ into a local Church competition. The minister of his church saw his work and asked Brown to recreate this imagine on stage during the service, which Brown initially turned down. After some thought, and divine intervention, Brown decided to take his minister up on the offer… and the rest is history!
