i95’s Memorial Day 500 Rolls This Weekend
This weekend will be a Memorial Day weekend unlike any we've seen in our lifetime. Picnics will be a little smaller, parades are not happening, and social distancing requires us to rethink how we celebrate. But there's one tradition that won't be stopped. As we've done every year since the 80's, i95 will be counting down the Memorial Day 500 all weekend long.
We'll start the countdown Friday afternoon at 3PM and roll it all weekend. We'll wrap up with this year's #1 song late Monday afternoon, just as you're wrapping up your weekend. What song will it be? Where did your favorite song come in on the list this year? Listen all weekend and find out.
We put a lot of thought into the countdown every year, and take into account local and national airplay, requests, and overall timelessness. We know you take it seriously too. Every year we get emails splitting hairs about "How dare (this song) didn't chart higher than (that song?)" We're so glad you pay that much attention and respect the music that much, so enjoy the journey with us all weekend.
You can crank us up in a variety of ways all weekend long: on the radio, on your Alexa or Google smart speaker, or on the i95 Rock app. So, while you're waiting to be seated for outdoor dining at one of the restaurants that opened back up you can still listen on your phone. Or just crank up the boom box in the back yard and treat your neighbors to the countdown too. Either way, we've got the soundtrack to whatever you come up with as far as celebrating. We'd love to see your Memorial Day photos so feel free to drop them in the comments below on on our Facebook page.
