CBS RADIO Triple A WXRT/CHICAGO has announced its annual opening day CUB BASEBALL event. Only this year it is taking place in the evening live from WRIGLEYVILLE on SUNDAY, APRIL 5th.
WXRT morning show co-hosts LIN BREHMER and MARY DIXON will be joined by JUST A REGULAR GUY, a fixture of the past 23 years’ XRT Opening Day broadcast. Anyone unable to be there in person can tune in to 93.1FM, or stream the video webcast live at 93XRT.com.
There will be live performances by RHETT MILLER, THE TING TINGS, THE WACO BROTHERS and IVAN & ALYOSHA, plus a special appearance by CUBS TV broadcaster LEN KASPER and his band, THE ROSIN BAGS, featuring MATT SPIEGEL (of sister sports station WSCR) and drummer JIMMY CHAMBERLIN (ex-SMASHING PUMPKINS).
WXRT will also be giving away a pair of tickets to two of the most highly-anticipated sold out concerts of the summer during the broadcast: One attendee will win a pair of tickets to Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of GRATEFUL DEAD at SOLDIER FIELD JULY 4th Weekend; and another will win a pair of tickets to see FOO FIGHTERS at WRIGLEY FIELD on AUGUST 29th.
