Thank you River 101.9 for supporting Special Olympics Oklahoma’s Poteau Polar Plunge! Gary Hecht and I appreciate the on-air interview this morning!!
Hard for a Brother to find a True Classic Rock Station. Been with Mr Baker The KISR days ... ( Looking for a angle got to find it where it fell .. what to get to heaven got raise a little hell ) .., I found. 101.9
THIS IS THE VERY BEST ROCK STATION IN THE FORT SMITH AREA!!! NEVER THE SAME SONGS. HAVE HEARD A LOT OF STUFF I TOTALLY FORGOT ABOUT. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK 101.9 THE RIVER!!!!
Half the time I try to listen to your station it’s just dead air what’s up
Love the music, format, etc - but seriously - get you β€œstuff” together! Don’t know WHY you’re STILL having technical difficulties but as a advertiser I’d be HOT and as a consumer I’m very disappointed with all the dead air occurring ENTIRELY TOO OFTEN!
Just WOW! How can you expect to run a station like this?! If it was over the course of a few days one could understand but this has been happening off and on for MONTHS. Time to invest in new equipment, expertise or both!
Rhinestone Cowboy by Glen Campbell??? ...really??? ..somehow I was under the impression that this was supposed to be our local Classic Rock station... 🀣🀣🀣
Happy Birthday

5 Greatest David Lee Roth Era Songs In the world of hard rock, it is normal for bands led by a guitar hero to end up overshadowed by their main guitarist. An exception to this rule is the Van Halen: David Lee Roth's charisma and lyrics placed him on the same level as Eddie Van Halen and the six albums on which he led the band have gon

1955 - The Chrysler Corporation launched high fidelity record players for their 1956 line-up of cars. The unit measured about four inches high and less than a foot wide and was mounted under the instrument panel. The seven inch discs spun at 16 2/3 rpm and required almost three times the number of grooves per inch as an LP. The players were discontinued in 1961.

1957 - During an Australian tour, Little Richard publicly renounced rock 'n' roll and embraced God, telling a story of dreaming of his own damnation after one of the engines on a plane he was on caught fire. The singer threw four diamond rings, valued at $8,000, into Sydney's Hunter River and soon after launched a Gospel career. Five years later, he would switch back to Rock.

1978 - While living at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City, S*x Pistol Sid Vicious called the police to say that someone had stabbed his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. He was arrested and charged with murder and placed in the detox unit of a New York prison. Vicious died of a he**in overdose before the case went to trial.

1985 - Ricky Wilson of the B-52's died of complications from aids.

2005 - Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee suffered minor burns at a concert in Casper, Wyoming during a pyrotechnics explosion. Lee was treated at a local hospital for the injuries to his arm and face, which occurred while he was suspended from a wire 30 feet above the stage.
