Happy 4th of July Whale Nation! It's time once again to celebrate our independence, and remember those who had made and continue to make our Country free.

This extended weekend, be sure to take 99.1 The Whale everywhere, so you can catch hourly double-shots of great Classic Rock from bands and artists who hail from the good 'ol U.S.A.

From Aerosmith to ZZ Top, we've got you covered with the best rock music in America.
So, enjoy your independence and those awesome fireworks. Doug, Kyle, Kat, Rich, Seth and I, hope you and your family have a wonderful 4th of July. Just a friendly reminder that if you drink, don't drive. Get a designated driver, and stay safe.

Check out Lynyrd Skynyrd's Red, White and Blue below, and if it doesn't' get you choked up about being a proud American, well...

We’re always looking for ideas for Classic Rock theme weekends, so if you have an idea you’d like us to feature for a weekend, let us know.

Have a Rock and Roll Weekend, and remember to take 99.1 The Whale wherever you go, so you won’t miss all that great Classic Rock. We give you three ways to listen –  on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at 991thewhale.com and on your mobile phone with radioPup.
