Video of GRD’s All Request New Year’s Eve Show with Auld Lang Syne and Drinking!

Janna, Ned, and I had such a blast on Wednesday night, hosting the first GRD All Request New Year's Eve show, sponsored by Fox Nissan!

We played a ton of requests, tried to help people get together for the new year, hopefully got some girls to any with Ryan and Chris, and everyone else who was partying alone for the new year!

We also had some amazing crazy calls, and lots of fun!

Johnnie Walker, Janna, and Metalhead Ned Ring in New Year! [Audio]

If you were listening to the WGRD All Request New Year's Eve Show, you would have heard some of us in our prime!

We had a good time and we hope you did, too!

While you were making out with someone or celebrating, we were singing that song that your supposed to sing on New Year's.

Give us a break, by the way. We're not the best singers.

Johnnie Films a Timelapse of the Last Snow of 2014 in Grand Rapids

I still love the snow...I know, everyone here at WGRD gets mad at me for it, but I can't help it! I've always loved the cold weather, and enjoy playing in the snow, so Grand Rapids is a great place for me.

The year is almost over, so when I saw that some snow was finally beginning to fall on December 30th, after almost an entire December without anything, I got excited and broke out the GoPro again to catch the snowfall.

Laugh with New Year’s Eve Stories from the GRD Staff – Happy New Year!

We've all had some stupid things we've done, or had less than stellar celebrations before. Luckily, you have kept them secret from anyone who wasn't there at the time.

We have, unfortunately, spilled the details on our past New Year's Eve celebration failures in this new GRD video. We are horrible at keeping secrets.

Islander Rocked Grand Rapids on Saturday Night with Pop Evil

Saturday night, Grand Rapids' own, Pop Evil returned home for a big show at The Intersection, with Islander, Letters from the Fire, Red Sun Rising, and Grand Rapids' own, Hurry Home!  All the bands kicked ass, getting the crowd rowdier and crazier as the night went on.

Before the show even began, Islander came out to meet some GRD ticket winners, and play a few acoustic versions of some songs, including "Coconut Dracula".  The guitar player was late for the acoustic set, so the band decided to play a little joke on him and pretend the set was over just as he ran in to play!
