Sunday Morning Odds & Sods

72° - scattered clouds at 10:40am

Welcome to Sunday.

It's "Vinyl Record Day" -
more here.

to my usual Sunday Morning combination. WDRV/Chicago until 11 eastern - then onto WKLH/Milwaukee. Each stations does a program named "Rock & Roll Roots" - though the shows are far different from each other.

Both shows rock and well worth your time.

Number one 12-plus club. Add to that list KKZX/Spokane in the new Spring numbers. (Nothing new for KKZX; the station has been the 12+ leader in its market many times before).

Around the country:

WCSX is hitting the streets next Friday and Saturday for the 13th annual Woodward Dream Cruise.

The event is "the world's largest
one-day celebration of car culture with more than 1 million visitors and more than 40,000 classic cars". See here.

Meanwhile - sister station WRIF is giving local bands a chance to open for Motor City Madman Ted Nugent when he returns to town. Details here.

And WRIF is going to broadcast the Detroit Grand Prix live on Sunday, September 2nd. See
here. Both 'CSX and 'RIF are pretty dialed into Detroit - very visible in events extending beyond music.

WDRV up market legend Bobby Skafish from weekends to PM drive. Skafish for years did PM drive across town on WXRT. A huge move for The Drive!

Denver: KRFX says goodbye to comedian/actor Harland Williams in PM drive. "Shark" - currently middays - moves into afternoons.

Accolades to KRFX PD Garner Goin - an innovator - for trying something very out-of-the-box with Harland Williams.

Have a great Sunday.
