Memorial Day Weekend In New Jersey

It’s Memorial Day Weekend and New Jersey 101.5 thanks our nations heroes for their duty and sacrifice so that we can enjoy beautiful summer weekends.  We encourage you to take the time to remember those that served our country and made the ultimate sacrifice.  Please remember to thank all the vets you meet this weekend!

We all have gone through quite a recovery period this past fall, winter and into this spring, and while many still have a long way to go with restoration after Superstorm Sandy, much has been restored.  It is music to our ears to hear the sound of saws buzzing and hammers pounding at the shore as hundreds of construction professionals have been working non stop to Restore The Shore.  So let’s show the world that we are “Stronger Than The Storm” and celebrate the wonderful Jersey Shore his holiday weekend and welcome the “Summer Of Strong”…THE SUMMER OF 2013!

NJ101.5 is Playing Jersey’s Favorite Summer Hits

Remember to make New Jersey 101.5 the soundtrack for your weekend!  We will be featuring “Jersey’s Favorite Summer Hits From Jersey’s Favorite Summers”.  Plus listen for New Jersey Fast Traffic and Alan Kasper’s Instant Weather to get you to the beach and back, and to help you plan pool, patio and picnic fun!

We’ll be playing the hits from a summer year each hour.  Hear hits covering summers from the late 60′s, 70′s and 80′s.  For example, one hour you may hear an hour of summer hits from 1983, then the next hour you might hear an hour of music from the summer of ’77, then the next  hour it might be 60 minutes of hits from the summer of ’69!  You’ll never know what year will be next, so you gotta keep listening!  Listen for the hits you love and even some you may not have heard in awhile.

Listen to us in the car on the way to your weekend fun, listen on your smartphone through our RadioPup mobile app  and if you don’t want to get sand in your iPhone, we hear there is a new trend of breaking out the old boom box and bringing it to the beach!
