Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!! From the entire crew of Garage71 Radio and Grease Inc., we wish you and your family a very special, warm holiday filled with cheer.
This time of year helps remind us to slow down a little and take the time to give back to our community. We have been blessed to be a part of the Bearded Sinners annual Chili Cook-Off and Coat Drive for the needy. It’s amazing to meet the social gaps that continue today when you see a bunch of “deplorables” taking time to look out for strangers in need during the winter months. Maybe, we should all learn a little more from others actions.
We will be part of a couple of Toy Drives this season. B3 Bar and Grill will host another great event providing gifts for 7 Bridges to Recovery, and NoLove4Atlanta will hosting their annual Toys for Tots Cruise In at our studio on December 11th. Last year we collected over two truck loads of toys and $5k in cash to donate to the Marines. It was a sight to see! Following the Toys for Tots event, we will open our doors for the Dirty Santa Party at the studio. Make sure you wear your ugly sweater!!! It’s a must to attend!!! It’s time to spike the egg nog and have some good holiday laughs.
Make sure you tune in to Garage71 this holiday season. We are relaunching the V8 Lounge on Sundays. During the holidays, we will be playing a great mix of Rockabilly, Swing, and Rock Christmas tunes. You know, the ones the “big” stations won’t play! Tune in anytime at www.garage71.com or download the Android or TuneIn App and listen anytime.
We look forward to recognizing your choices next month for the Ink and Oil awards. Thank you for your input and choices. This year has had the biggest response yet!
