Favorite thing: WEBN

Surely the best hard rock station in Cincinnati, playing such great rock oldies as The Doors, Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, or any of Ozzy's bands.

You are always guaranteed to hear Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Misfits/Danzig, at least once in a 2-hour period. Occasionally you might hear the Beatles' Revolution and ONCE I heard The Cure!

Bob the Producer & Eddie Fingers are hilarious to listen to on the morning show, there are always great traffic updates; however, I cannot bear the nasal tones of sportscaster, Wildman Walker - yikes! My favorite DJ is Jay Gilbert who is on in the evenings. His humor is not crude like some of the other DJs, it's more quick-witted, dry & gently sarcastic. What's more, he's married to one of my great friends!

Official website:

Fondest memory: WEBN & Toyota team up to do the Labor Day fireworks on the Ohio River in Cincinnati every year - it's QUITE the tradition and one of the best traditions Cincy has!

I recommend going to the Kentucky side of the river just so you can see the glorious 30-minute blazing display against the backdrop of the gorgeous Cincinnati skyline. Besides, the KY side always wins the shout-out contest anyway!!

Oh, and don't forget your portable radio so you can listen to the music in tandem with the bursts of fireworks!
