What’s the Word uses one word to describe their week and then builds a fire playlist around it. Listen in to hear some great covers, some classics, and current alternative tunes!

Whitesnake’s new album The Purple Album, released earlier in 2015, shows that after a 35+ year career, they still have relevance today, and are still very talented. This album shows the band’s musical flexibility, with styles ranging from metal, to soft rock, to their more familiar classic rock feel. It should be said that I am only really familiar with their more commercially successful songs, specifically Still of the Night and Here I Go Again, so I am not aware of the band’s evolution in style over the years. However, this does give me a clear perspective on their skill and the quality of the music on this new album. (more…)

These two DJs are always rockin’ out on their show, It’s a Hard Rock Life. Their Wednesday show from 3:00-4:00pm is so rockin’ that they have just won DJs of the Month! They embody everything WLOY, which is being cool, fun, and having a great taste in music. These two cool cats also just went the extra nine yards and added an extra show called It’s a Harder Rock Life that features even more Hard Rock jams that airs every Saturday 12:00-1:00am. Matt and Ian even were at WLOY over the Summer to make more listeners happy year round. If you haven’t heard them yet, you have two chances… every week… LISTEN TO THEM!
Good Job, Matt and Nick!
