Totally 10-in-a-Row Weekends!

I wanted to share some news from the Music Department of 106-5 The Wolf. We always strive to give you more music, and we've come up with a great way to give you more music on your weekends! Starting every Saturday at Midnight each time we start playing music you'll hear 10 songs played back to back. We're calling it our "Totally Ten In A Row Weekends"

 

It's getting to be that time of year we all begin spending more time outside with friends and family, out at the lakes, and in our back yards. I just want you to know we're here for you every weekend with more music and now even fewer interruptions. I hope you have a great summer and thanks for listening to the Wolf!

 

For those who've been helping with the music test I thank you! There is a new music test waiting for you now by logging in and selecting "get points" and then "Music Test"

 

 If you haven't participated yet, I hope you will! Your feedback has been very helpful for us to know which songs you like, and help make this truly your station!

Big Thanks To Wolf Listeners For Another Successful Adopt-A-Thon

217 pets found forever homes thanks to your generosity. And thanks to Wayside Waifs for the half price adoptions. Times are tough financially and making pets just a little more affordable is nice. And also thanks to Wayside for helping me and my fiancee find a new addition to our home. His name is Willie and he's a 2 month old Beagle/Labrador mix. I looked on-line and that mix is called a Labbe, or Beagador. We've only had him a few days but he's already figuring things out. So far we've had no accidents in our home. He's a good boy.

If you missed the Adopt-A-Thon and you're interested in finding a new friend or family member. You should check out www.waysidewaifs.org  The regular adoption price is very resonable. And so much cheaper than what you would pay at a pet store. Not to mention the pets are more well cared for than what you will find at a pet store. And they're already spade or neutered.

 If you're looking for pure breeds over 25% of the animals are pure breeds.

Thanks again to you, our listeners for opening your hearts and homes to 217 animals.

And thank you again Wayside for our new pup Willie!

Jimmy Wayne is getting a big party in Texas on Friday when he arrives in Amarill

 which is the estimated halfway point of his Meet Me Halfway walk to Phoenix, Arizona for homeless teens. Jimmy tweeted, "I cannot believe I've walked to Texas from Nashville." His walk has been made a bit easier by lightening his load a bit. Wayne said, "Since I've stopped wearing my backpack, I've been able to pick up my [walking] pace. I've felt my knees and my back get sore out here on the road, but the key for me has been stretching, wearing the right shoes, and drinking a lot of water. I'm making sure I take stretch breaks throughout the day, because my hamstrings have a tendency to tighten up. You know, in hindsight, I don't know if there is a way you can train for something like this. I didn't. I've just always been really active and I felt like I could pull it off."

Jimmy continues to receive some very special gifts on his journey. He explains to AOL's The Boot, "People are giving me crosses every day now because I mentioned it one time in my tweet that I wanted to take the cross that I was wearing and give it to one of the kids there in Phoenix when I see them. The next day, and every day since then, I get crosses from my fans who come out to support project Meet Me Halfway. It's turned into quite a cross collection now out on the road. I got 28 crosses today." He says it's cool he is swamped with cross necklaces, but he can't wear them all or he'd "look like Mr. T!" Wayne expects to arrive in Phoenix sometime in May or June.

Wooo Hoooo!

A weekend when I can get outside and do something! What a rough winter we've all had. I'm very thankful we'll get the chance to enjoy some more comfortable weather and at the very least begin getting the winter snow melt grime residue cleared out. Hope you have a great weekend! (WP)

Back on the air this week

I was out last week for CRS which stands for Country Radio Seminar. It's the better part of a week, and country programmers and station personnel head to Nashville for networking, education, and familiarizing ourselves with the new best music coming our way in the next year. There are some folks that are worth checking out. Most of these folks are pretty unknown but you will most likely hear a lot more about them in the year, and years to come.

Tyler Dickerson, a new artist on Lyric Street. Only 16 years old, but the attitude and song writing ability of someone a lot older, you can listen to his stuff on myspace.

 

Emily West: She was recently in town for a show at Fuel and I saw her again with her entire band. She's on the verge of turning into something big, you can listen to some of her songs on her myspace page also. We're currently playing Blue Sky featuring Keith Urban on the Wolf.



Josh Thompson: also makes my list for possible superstars, many of you may have heard "Beer On The Table" which was his first single. I have pretty good feeling he'll be around for at while. He has a album available now and should be available at Walmart and Target. You can hear songs from it on Myspace.

 

Last but not least, Mallary Hope She's a new artist on MCA Records. The trend has been going toward singer song writers in Nashville for the last 5 years or so. More and more labels are searching for talented singers and songwriters. Mallary fits the bill, great voice and a great song writer. Check out some of her stuff on her Myspace page.



There are more that I'm missing but the good news there is a lot of fresh talent out there and some great new music you'll be hearing on the Wolf soon!  (WP)
