FYI - Father's Day is this Sunday. That's my public service announcement, just in case you forgot.

This weekend, in honor of Father's Day, we have decided to honor Founding Fathers of Classic Rock. That means those musical artists who helped shaped the incredible world of Rock and Roll.

These men have, and some still do, contribute much to the rock music scene, and are an inspiration and influence on future musicians.

This weekend, enjoy hourly double-shots of tune from these masters of Rock - our musical Founding Fathers.

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 and on your mobile phone with radioPup.
