30 years ago, before Corporate America took over the world, there was an amazing radio station called WMMS 101 FM. There was a DJ named Kid Leo who was the coolest man in the universe. His voice was like molten gold.
For decades it seemed, every Friday at 5:00pm WMMS would play a three-song lineup to get everybody geared up for the weekend. There was even a vocal introduction by Cleveland disc jockey Alan Freed, the man who first coined the phrase, "Rock-N-Roll." The songs were "Born To Run" by Bruce Springsteen, "Cleveland Rocks" by Ian Hunter and "Friday on my Mind" by the Easybeats.
WMMS is now a shadow of its former self. For the past six months, I have been replying to their non-music related Facebook posts, asking them to please stop being the TMZ of radio and go back to playing the Friday Night Happy Hour line-up. They never reply. Now they must pay!
Please sign to voice your support. Surely I can't be the only Clevelander missing the glory days of Rock-N-Roll, can I?
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
