Songs About the Radio for XRT Loyalists

Happy Listener Appreciation Month, XRT Listeners! In the spirit of giving thanks during the month of November, we at XRT want to thank you, our loyal listeners! Each weekday, we will declare one faithful XRT listener the “Loyal Listener of the Day” and give you a shout out on the air, a limited edition 93XRT Bluetooth speaker and the brand new XRT “Music Lover” t-shirt. Plus one lucky grand prize winner will score a $2,000 Stub Hub gift card, so you can attend the upcoming concerts of your choice!

Enter to be the Loyal Listener of the Day right here!

Even more, we’re sending our Promotions Team out around town to give out XRT “Music Lover” t-shirts. Tune in daily to find out where you can pick up a limited edition t-shirt at locations across Chicago all month long.

With all of this appreciation going on, I thought I’d dig up a few songs that show some love to the radio.
