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.

Free Beer & Hot Wings: Hot Wings’ GRD Radiothon Coffee Disaster From Friday [Video]

On Friday afternoon, "The Free Beer & Hot Wings Morning Show" crew took over afternoon drive on our home station, 97.9 WGRD, and held a radio telethon with our friends in the band Wayland to raise money and awareness for the A-T Children's Project.

For the GRD Radiothon, we took pay-for-play requests where people could pay money to hear us play ANYTHING at all.

Thanks to the generosity of our listeners, we were able to raise $10,000 in just four hours. But unfortunately, there was one casualty.

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.
