Off the top of my head, Kings X, Extreme and Cheap Trick. It was a decent venue at one time.

Re: Sean Biligian coming back?

It won't happen, but it would actually be his third go-around. He left the Sean and Terp Show for a while and came back with Droo.

Re: Eric Zane to WBBL

Wow. I lost all respect for FB&HW. I understand Zane could be a handful, but that's what made the show great. They just sell him out after 15 years? I doubt I'll listen again. I guess since they had kids they've turned into a couple of corporate boys. You're right Metalhead. Today's show was intense...

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

The only thing that would be inexcusable is a physical altercation.
I sure hope that isn't the case. It did cross my mind. It did happen in his distant past.

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

Langlois really went cheap on the exterior though. The original design looked pretty good, then he went and built an airport hangar. I think I have photos of the Stadium Arena being torn down somewhere.

Re: Zane From Free beer and hot wings is FIRED

He is/was a much bigger part of the show than Hot Wings. I hope it is just a suspension. I think the whole thing started when Zane (who also works PA for the Griffins and the Drive) was ripping on the owner of the DeltaPlex. He made an on air apology the Friday before he went missing. FB&HW only sai...

Re: Hot new years eve party headliners

I just assumed I didn't recognize any of the artists because I am in my mid-40's. Not that I'd go down there anyway.

Re: Brett Thomas announces departure from WOOD TV

Never cared for him or Emily which is why I turned over to Fox 17 since they began morning news and never turned back. They come across as arrogant and condescending in my opinion.
