You know those songs that suddenly just pop up on Rock 108 suddenly, or were minor hits for a minute?
I have a treasure trove in my brain of those songs. I have been in radio for 13 years and I have seen bands come and go. I’ve lived in a bigger city and a smaller city…so I get quite the variety of bands running through, stopping by the studios, and performing a song that it getting decent radio play!
Most of these bands still exists or have different members nowadays, but these songs listed below are ones I pulled from my brain from my 13 years of seeing the bands come and go, and they fall under the “OHHH YEA! I REMEMBER THIS ONE!”
Taddy Porter-Shake Me
Coming from the 2010’s, I remember them playing a tent in Holland, MI at a festival named ‘Tulip Time Festival.’ This was still early in my radio days, so being able to sit with the band and shoot the s&^% about Sega Dreamcast was pretty cool.
Great song, great band.
Maaaan this song was HUGE that summer! Cavo came to town, and I was tasked with bringing them in the radio station vehicle to Walgreens…as a young radio kid? I was in heaven! Driving around a touring band to get supplies? How epic.
This is still a very solid song, I remember doing it on the 420 and we had a bunch of calls and messages.
Foxy Shazam-I Like It
From what I understand, Rock 108 played the track ‘Unstoppable’ by this band. The one I know is this! Foxy Shazam was definatly a unique band, and they have even release new music just a couple years ago! When I think back to my mid-radio days, Foxy Shazam always pops up. I remember saving their instruments during a major rain storm too.
Rock 108 dug the hell outta this band in the early 2010’s. If you look in our system, we have quite a few Rev Theory songs! I saw them for the first time open up for Dope at a place called The Intersection. They had that 2010’s hard rock edge and loved it!
Heaven’s Basement-Fire, Fire
What an underrated band…this song rocks! Honestly that’s all I really have, just a great song.
