[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]

A Benefit Concert for Music Lovers: Hot Stove Cool Music
