[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]

There is a measure of comfort in our belief that a classic will resist its age.

From the ridiculous to the sublime.


Top 5 Rock Screams. Happy Birthday to Roger Daltrey [Watch]

Now I was forced to consider Joe Walsh’s exuberant intro to “Meadows.” Jim Morrison’s scream in “When The Music’s Over” which I promise I’ll play during the apocalypse.
