WPON To Air 'Detroit Flashback Weekend'
May 19, 2009 at 4:00 PM (PT)
WABC-A/NEW YORK's "REWOUND" special is moving to online/on demand only this year and WLS-A/CHICAGO isn't doing its own version this time around, but DETROIT will be getting its own MEMORIAL DAY taste of the classic Top 40 days with WPON-A/PONTIAC's "DETROIT FLASHBACK WEEKEND," on the air at 1460 AM and online at wpon.com.
The show will air 7-10p MAY 22nd-25th, produced by veteran jock JIM HAMPTON with LEE ALAN and DAVE PRINCE among the scheduled guests and airchecks from the legends of WXYZ-A, WJLB-A, WJBK-A, WKNR-A, and the BIG 8, CKLW-A, including TOM CLAY, ROBIN SEYMOUR, TERRY KNIGHT and many more.
HAMPTON said, "This is better than a vacation. I get to do something I love and at the same time get reacquainted with the city I grew up in. There is too much negativity in the city right now. So this is a good time for Detroiters to remember some of the great days of their past. There's nothing better than music and memories."
