I have no problem with rap or pop music but It pains me to see that Rock n' Roll no longer has a seat at the table. The fact that there is not one position in the Top 10 for rock is upsetting. If there was ever a time for a rock genius to cement their legacy and save the genre, now is that time. Can someone please stand up and take charge?

From Buttons to Bunkers: The Cold War Charm of The I95 Tower in Brookfield

My name is Lou Milano, the co-host of the I-95 Morning Show with Ethan, Lou & Large Dave. I started working here in September of 1999 which means I just celebrated my 23rd year with the company and I let it pass by without even realizing it.

In my time with the station I've only been to the broadcast tower site a handful of times. My last trip up there made me think that everyone should get to see this. This is my virtual tour of the tower site from the ground. As you read this I want you to keep in mind that it takes all of these components to create 50,000 watts, one of the strongest signals in Connecticut.
