WEND Was Not Stunting

Did you see or hear what CLEAR CHANNEL Alternative WEND (1065 THE END)/CHARLOTTE played the past five days? CHRISTINA AGUILERA, BIG & RICH, NATASHA BEDDINGFIELD, BON JOVI, CARRIE UNDERWOOD, BLACK SABBATH. It was all part of "THE END'S MYPOD NEW YEAR'S SPECIAL."
WEND PD JACK DANIEL told ALL ACCESS, "Starting with the FALL book, WEND has vowed to give listeners 'Special Programming' on the weekends. We say, 'You don't do the same things on the weekend you do during the week, so why should we!'
"In keeping with that promise, 1065 THE END presented the 'MYPOD NEW YEAR'S SPECIAL.' We basically let jocks program their shifts from the personal iPODS from 6p on DECEMBER 28th-NEW YEAR'S DAY. There were literally NO RULES, except no profanity and the guys did a great job in keeping it interesting. I even took a turn at the controls and played some ALAN PARSONS, JOHNNY CASH, YES, STYX, and AMERICA. Generated lots of calls and e-mails!"
DANIEL continues, "This weekend it's 'NOTHING BUT '90s.' Other specials we've done and will do again include: 'METALLICA ON TOP,' 'CHICKS ON TOP,' 'GUITAR HEREOS,' 'MENAGE' A TROIS (2-fers),' 'THE PERFECT ALBUM SIDE' and more."
