Just Another Strange Day at the Radio Station

It's a pretty slow day here at the radio station, I have exhausted everything that I can do. Heck, I have even worked way ahead so I can get other things done as they approach! That's called 'smart working!' I started to clean the Promotions office and I found something I would never expect to see. It was a Wig and a Crown....

Well, I couldn't help it!

Check Out WGRD’s New Studio – It’s Done!

You've heard us all talking about the new studio we finally got to get into this week, and how we're all getting used to it.  It's really cool, and really open, which is unusual for a lot of stations.

Most of the time, you're buried behind a million computer screens, hoping the other people in the room are still there, and you're not talking to yourself.

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.

Congratulations to Free Beer and Hot Wings for 10 Years in Grand Rapids!

This week is the 10th anniversary of Free Beer and Hot Wings coming to WGRD and Grand Rapids to inflict their brand of humor on the city and the world!  This is a big achievement for a morning show, to make it this long, and we're really happy to have the guys here in our great city!

Here's some video of last night after some of the decorating of the hallways, and then some of the (unfortunately edited) video from the staff lunch.  The guys were doing their thing, insulting everyone including themselves, and our GM, Russ, presented them with some bathroom decorations!

Metalhead Ned’s Random Pic of the Week – WGRD Throwback

I went surfing through my normal stops for records a few days ago and went through a couple of the CD's. I could use this picture for a Throwback Thursday, but I felt as though it fit the Random Pic portion better.

Time to fly back a long time ago and look at some of the CD's that WGRD used to sell that featured local artist and everything!
