This weekend we dug a little deeper than usual with our feature artist Spooky Tooth. They were a very successful band with several albums, but Spooky Tooth is not a super well known name like Fleetwood Mac or Van Halen. But they had their own niche and served those people well. It’s interesting that Gary Wright who was a founding member, also keyboards and vocals for the band, was a very early promoter of the Synthesizer. When Gary went solo with his Dreamweaver album in 1975, the synthesizer was very prevalent in the entire production.

We had checkins from many far away places making requests, which is not unusual. We heard from our friend Jake in Panama who says he grew up listening to Larry Allen and All Request Saturday Night, and he’s lived in Panama for many years, but still tunes in every Saturday Night. Jake is originally from the Lansing area and still has family here. Many of the listeners who tune in to our stream from far away are people who used to live here in Mid-Michigan, and thanks to the internet they can continue their Saturday night tradition with WMMQ. We also got requests from California, Ohio, Melbourne Australia, and several locations around Michigan. During the summer months we have lots of Michiganders who spend their weekends up north at a cottage or campground, and they all check in from around the bonfires asking for requests.

It’s a very interesting group of people who come together every Saturday Night around the radio to hear some great music that you just don’t hear on the radio much anymore. That’s what we specialize in, and we thank all of you for your support. Next weekend, we celebrate Lou Gramm’s birthday as we feature the music of Foreigner. Have a great week!
