West Michigan: Newsmakers Feb. 17, 2011




Grand Rapids Press:

WLAVExpect a lot of hand-picked classic rock and behind-the-music stories - like when the Verve Pipe was booed every night in '96 opening 29 dates for KISS - when singer-songwriter Brian Vander Ark helms a new weekday morning show on WLAV-FM (96.9) that officially debuts Thursday. The show had a soft opening this morning.

"I'm stoked, you know? I've always been a fan of LAV and classic rock. And I've always worn my influences on my sleeve as a writer," the 46-year-old Verve Pipe frontman said. "Huge, huge fan of the songwriters of that genre."

"The Brian Vander Ark Show" will air from 9 a.m. to noon weekdays. The first hour will be shared with "The Kevin Matthews Show" and its co-hosts Deb Hart and Kevin Matthews. That hand-off hour will feature a lot of music, as it normally does, and some bantering between Matthews and Vander Ark...
