WGRD’s New Studio Construction Diary – Part 3

The new GRD studio is nearing completion!  We're all stoked to see the new GRD taking shape, with new carpet, millions of TVs, brand new mixing board, lighting, cameras...it's exhausting even thinking about!

Our engineering department, Mike and Ryan, have done an amazing job with the studio, and things are coming together nicely.

Last time, we left off with the lighting going in, the carpet, and some furniture.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: A Listener Got Our Logo Tattooed On His Leg

A while back, listener Dave emailed us, asking us for a high resolution image of "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" logo.

He said he wanted to get it tattooed on his body. We didn't really believe him, but we sent it along anyway.

Summer Craft Beer Fest 2014 – Pike 51 Brewing Sampling [Video]

Today, I got to sample some amazing beers at Pike 51 Brewing Company in Hudsonville.  They're part of our 2014 Summer Craft Beer Fest, happening this Saturday at John Ball Park.

If you haven't tried their brews, you owe it to yourself to stop by and do so.  They're very smooth beers, and don't assault you when you drink them, even the ones with higher alcohol content!  I really like how smooth they all are.

WGRD’s New Studio Construction Diary – Part 2

The work continues on the new digs for WGRD!  We left off last time with Hot Wings, Producer Steve, and Johnnie Walker getting together for a painting party.  The walls were nasty, so things got painted up really nicely.

Then, this week was all about carpet, TVs, lights, and some radio gear!

Hot Wings – Producer Steve – Johnnie Walker Paint WGRD’s Studio

In case you haven't seen or heard us talking about it, the GRD studio is getting a bit of an upgrade!  We're really excited about it, and it's fun to watch all the toys arrive, and to see the room get stripped down and rebuilt!

Last night, Hot Wings picked up some paint, and he, Steve, and I spackled (I love that word), taped off stuff, and got to work painting the studio.  Our studio walls were pretty...well...nasty.  After a lot of years and use, they weren't the kind of walls you'd want to touch.

Amway Family Fireworks’ Fifth of July: Downtown Grand Rapids Lit Up! [Photos]

Downtown Grand Rapids was lit up for the Fifth of July with the Amway Family Fireworks.

A few thousand people came to Ah-Nab-Awen park to enjoy some food, drink, music, entertainment, activities and, of course, the 20-minute fireworks spectacular!

Music from The Rhythm Aces, Vox Vidorra, and Three's a Crowd performed into the evening, as well as some amazing acrobatics and aerial work from the Daredevil Circus Company!

Then, the sky over downtown Grand Rapids lit up with an amazing fireworks show, to honor all those who serve and protect our freedoms and lives!

WGRD is Finally Getting Some New Digs!

The GRD studios are finally getting upgraded!  The board has been dying for quite a while now, which I'm sure you've heard the guys on Free Beer and Hot Wings talking about, whenever a microphone channel would go down.

But finally the time is here!  We've got new equipment coming in, new furniture, we're going to paint the walls and get new carpet, too!

Luckily, Hot Wings is pretty handy, so we'll be learning from him all about wall-painting, hanging cool wall-stuff (that's some kind of technical talk there), and carrying heavy objects.
