Radio Show

  • Bob's Musical Yearbook/80's Rewind - Erie, PA
    WERG Energy FM 90, 9:00pm-12:00mid EST, I host this show. Bob's Musical Yearbook counts down the top 15 songs from a particular week in the 1980's. Hour two and three are requests and dedications. I also spotlight different topics each week by playing one spotlight each half hour (i.e. last week I spotlighted comedians like Sam Kinison, Rodney Dangerfeild and others). I play a game I call the 10 second recognition were I play the first ten seconds of a song and see if my listeners can guess what it is.(i.e. last week I played ten seconds of "fantasy" by Aldo Nova). Next is the 10:50 forgotten 80's track were I play a top 40 song that hasn't been played in a long time. (i.e. last week I played "stranger in my house" by Ronnie Milsap). Then there is the 11:30 doubleshot. Self explanitory. (i.e. last week I played "party all the time" and "put your mouth on me" by Eddie Murphy). finally there is what I call Gooch's pick. My friend Gooch knows more obscere music then anybody I know and every week he picks out one!
