The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show

The show (no music, just entertainment) is hosted by cast including Gregg “Free Beer” Daniels, Chris “Hot Wings” Michaels, Eric Zane, Producer Joe and Steve. http://www.freebeerandhotwings.com/

A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE FREE BEER & HOT WINGS SHOW. The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show began as an afternoon show in Omaha, Nebr., at non-commercial radio station KIWR in March 1997. The show was comprised of two former Central Michigan University roommates who eventually moved to mornings several months later. They remained there until summer 2000, when they moved to WBON in Knoxville, Tenn. It was there that they met the show’s eventual third member and other CMU grad, Eric Zane, who at the time was their direct competitor at WIMZ. When Zane was fired, he immediately drove across town and joined “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show.” In June 2002, the show moved to New Jersey, where it was simulcast on WTHK in Trenton, N.J., and WCHR on The Jersey Shore. “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show” began full syndication in 2004 with the addition of 97.9 WGRD in Grand Rapids, and is now heard on radio stations in 15 states

WHERE DID THE NAME COME FROM? Instead of calling the show “The Gregg & Chris Show,” which by all estimations would have been the most boring sounding radio show in the world, the decision was made to call it “The Free Beer & Hot Wings Show,” which seemed far more attention grabbing. It was admittedly nothing more than a cheap ploy to get people to listen under the false pretense that they may actually have a chance to win beer and/or hot wings. However, it was not intended that those two things would become permanently synonymous and attached to Gregg and Chris as nicknames, but that’s what happened and now they have to live with the consequences of their B.S. forever. Also, the reason Zane wasn’t given a food name is that, when he joined the show, he was already a well-known personality and, frankly, another food name would have just been an overkill of stupidity.
