Theme weekends. It's what we love to do. It's the spice to your weekend Classic Rock listening experience.

Every week, Jim Free and I meet to discuss each weekend's theme, and sometimes other staff members show up, claiming to help. They think it's OK to barge into our weekly drinking, um oops, I mean, brainstorm session.

This week's session was just like any other. No idea what theme to come up with. Then Jim started talking about some questionable things he was involved in during the early 80s (OK, that may or may not be true.)

Anyway, the old light above our heads clicked on (even though it was a dim 10 watts), and we came up with an early 80's weekend theme. Playing hourly double-shots of tunes from 1981, 1982 and 1983. Why not 1980? Who knows, so let's not look too deeply into it.

From Aerosmith to ZZ Top and everything in between, we've got the best music on the planet all weekend. As you enjoy your weekend, party with 99.1 The Whale! Take us wherever you go.
