New Jersey 101.5 hopes you created great memories during the summer of 2013!  Of course this summer was not without it's challenges (storm recovery and rainy weekends come to mind), but we proved to be "Stronger Than The Storm" and we were rewarded with some beautiful beach weekends in August!

Thanks for making New Jersey 101.5 your summer sound track once again this year.  More listeners enjoyed us this summer "when the music comes out to play" than ever before, and we would like to thank you for making us part of your summer weekends by keeping the summer alive!  New Jersey 101.5 gives you the sound of summer at the shore all year long!  Labor Day Weekend is an "Endless Summer Weekend" on New Jersey 101.5!

Listen for Jersey's Favorite Summer Hits starting Friday night at 7p on the Big Joe Jersey Request Show.  The music comes out to play all weekend and all day Labor Day.  Plus we will get you to the beach and back with fast traffic, instant weekend weather and breaking news as-it-happens.

On Labor Day starting at 10am, Big Joe counts down "Jersey's Top 40 Summer Songs" as voted for by our listeners. It's very clear to us that Jersey's loves the Beach Boys and Bruce as they have more than 1 song on the countdown. We even see some surprises from Meatloaf, Kid Rock and a not so surprising standard from Jersey guy Frank Sinatra!

We hope you have a chance to hear the countdown and we hope you have a great Labor Day Weekend with family and friends!

Thanks for your input and thanks for listening!
