101.1 WJRR FM Orlando is teaming up once again with Mel’s Bad Girls Club (MBGC) for Pay to Play, an effort to raise money and awareness for Hope Helps this holiday season
To do this, they will turn over the WJRR airwaves to the listeners of Central Florida on Friday, December 4 from 7am to 7pm, in exchange for donations.
Every few months, Orlando radio station WMMO sponsors a free concert in downtown Orlando, and the next one will be Cheap Trick on October 24.
The legendary rockers have been entertaining their legion of fans for over four decades, and show no signs of slowing down.
The band, comprised of Robin Zander (lead vocals), Rick Nielsen (lead guitar), Tom Petersson (bass), and Bun E. Carlos (drums), first formed in the early 70s in Rockford, Illinois. Their biggest hits since then include “Surrender”, “I Want You to Want Me”, “Dream Police” and “The Flame,” and their live album Cheap Trick at Budokan, is still one of the best concert albums ever.
Popular Orlando radio personality Scott McKenzie passed away the morning of August 11, 2015, after a long seven-year battle with non-Hodgkin lymphoma.
McKenzie, born Scott Alan Friedman 59 years ago, had been part of the MIX 105.1 morning crew for over 24 years and often referred to it as “the job of a lifetime.” In a piece he wrote for the station’s website last week, he mentioned a good luck charm routine he had of pressing his microphone’s “on” button a few extra seconds to remind himself how lucky he is to be able to what he loves.
