Fresh off The Whale's Classic Rock from A to Z, we've been working hard putting together the 2017 version of our Memorial Day Weekend Classic Rock 500.

Of course, anytime I mention the two words "working hard" I mean we put some effort into it, but not a ton. We're radio personalities, not hard workers, damn it! 

Anyway, the countdown will begin at 6am Saturday (5/27) and sail through the day, including Sunday and well into Monday afternoon. I suspect the number one song will air sometime in the 6pm hour on Monday.

As it has been in past years. this list is simply our opinion along with consultation from other Classic Rock radio stations around the country. There's certainly nothing 'official' about it. Every song in our Classic Rock 500 is awesome to begin with, so enjoy our countdown throughout the weekend!

While you are enjoying your weekend, let's remember what Memorial Day is all about. Most of us have friends and family members who have served our country to keep us safe and free. Let's remember their service and sacrifice not only this weekend, but everyday of the year. 

Monday May 29th, we will air a short memorial at 11am and play taps at noon. Please tune in and remember our veterans.

This holiday weekend, take us wherever you go this weekend. You can hear us on your radio at 99.1 FM, online at, on your mobile phone with the new Whale App – search for 99.1 The Whale, and also as 99.1 The Whale on radioPup!
