[Submit Your Question For Lin’s Bin Question]

Lin Brehmer is the indefatigable host of the XRT Morning Show. On the morning of Dec. 30th 1991, he placed a needle on the record, “This Must Be the Place” by Talking Heads to augur a new chapter in a radio career that began in 1977. He has anchored the XRT Morning Show ever since. His insouciant charm has inspired XRT News Anchor Mary Dixon to leave and come back and leave and come back and leave and come back. The two of them can be heard 5:30-10am Monday through Friday. [Read Lin’s Full Bio]

Maybe you remember teenage girls using Johnson’s baby oil in the hopes it would accelerate the tanning process.


Reasons to Celebrate the 36th Annual American Music Festival at Fitzgerald’s [Watch]

How do they fit all that music into such a small club? It’s not the size of the club; it’s the depth of their heart. And Fitzgerald’s has plenty of that.


Rock Stars as Role Models. [Read]
