  • Sonic Spotlight, presented by Dirtbag Clothing: Fellow Dirtbags Days To Come's new single "Siren".

Get There With Buddy Bear


Want a Chance to Win Free Rockville Tickets?

It's already been 2 months since tickets went on sale and they've been going FAST.  So how about a chance to win a weekend set of tickets to North Florida's #1 Rock Festival?  It's so easy, a dancing bear can do it!

Here's what you need to know:

  • Get out in the scene in Florida and look for Brian, Sholess Joe and Buddy Bear at a rock show near you. 
  • Find Buddy in a well lit location, with a sign telling you to "Get There With Buddy Bear" for a chance at free Rockville tickets. Approach Buddy gently as he doesn't like to be startled.
  • Place Buddy Bear on your head and begin to feel an unstoppable urge to move to the beat of the music.  
  • Make sure Brian and Shoeless Joe catch you in the act and get it on video.
  • BOOM!  You're entered to win Rockville tickets courtesy of Rock 98.9 and Sonic Assault! Winners will be drawn on or after April 8th, 2019 and announced on Sonic Assault.

The Sonic Spotlight


This week's Sonic Spotlight is Days To Come out of  Albany, GA and their latest single, "Siren".  The guys came down late last year for an acoustic jam and we got to hear this song before the rest of the world did...and we freaking loved it.  Now in full release with accompanying video, DTC is poised to make 2019 a breakout year.  Listen in during Hour 3 for our take and check out the video, too!

Old Skool Ridiculous

This week on OSR, we take a listen to the follow up single to "Conga", Miami Sound Machine's "Bad Boy".  This single also rocketed up the charts and gained much of its fame as it was part of the the soundtrack for the hit movie Three Men and a Baby.  Check it out during Hour 1 as the guys have plenty to say about this 80's classic!

The Strange, The Wierd and the Stupid


Grand Theft Auto: Extended Test Drive

It's a known fact that some car dealerships will let you test drive a car and even let you "take it home to see if you like it".  One special friend out there in Florida decided he was going to take an area car dealership up on that offer, but decided he liked the new ride enough to never bring it back.  


Ragu: Homemade House Fire, It's In There!

 This one goes back a bit, but Brian just had to share the good news with Shoeless Joe about a pair of noodle-heads who broke into an ex-boyfriend's house for a revenge theft with a side order of arson...thanks to a pot of spaghetti sauce.  The meltdown-inducing bonus? One of them was dressed up in a bull costume.
