Host: Lin’s Bin [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.

The two of them can be heard 5:30-10am Monday through Friday. [Read Lin’s Full Bio]

I chose to mix up the vintages and feature songs that XRT has played over the years.
Because men still complain about how rough they have it.
“Robbie may be up for a couple of Grammys, but Kelly and Nora are up for jammies.”
