About the Show
That Thing with Rich Appel is the only classic hits radio show that brings back the sound – not just the songs! If you loved the era of fast-paced top 40 radio – where DJs talked up to the vocals, the jingles stood out, and the commercials were almost as good as the hits – you’re sure to like THAT THING with Rich Appel.
That Thing is a three-hour celebration of that radio every Friday after our news at 6:00, highlighting those jingles, commercials and all the hits, with features such as “The Slow Dance Make-Out Song of the Week” and “The World’s Shortest Countdown,” plus hits carefully chosen to match each weekend’s birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and other events. Specials include May and June’s “Class Reunions,” April’s countdown of the “WOW! 100” and Super Bowl weekend’s “Tele-lection” counting down our listeners’ all-time favorite TV show themes. And every July and August we go “All Summer Songs, All Summer Long.” The program originates from the Chestnut Cabaret, where Inga handles the refreshments and Rich serves up the music. You can also join the fun on That Tnings’s Facebook page and Twitter feed.
Friday from 6:10 to 9:00 p.m.
