Detroit's WRIF jumps aboard the 'shuffle' craze

| | Comments (1)



Detorit rocker WRIF-FM (101.1) will join the countless numbers of radio stations across the country featuring 'shuffle' programming when this weekend it offers up a special "Memorial Weekend Shuffle". The RIFF will open up the music vaults to showcase some of the greatest rock tunes from the last three decades in a celebration of the Motor City's love of all things rock.

The station promises to play all the RIFF rock you’ve loved since taking over the 101.1 airwaves 34 years ago. From deep cuts, B sides and your favorites to current hits, the Memorial Weekend Shuffle will highlight it all, from “oh wow” to right now and everything in between. The weekend special will also feature giveways to see Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith along with copies of the new Star Wars video game and a limited edition Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith movie poster. The station will be in shuffle mode from 6pm Friday 'til 11:30am Monday and then plans on airing a similar specialty program every Saturday from 6-10am.



Is it just me, or does it seem that these shuffles only seem to play songs in the regular rotation. I don't seem to hear any "lost" tracks.
