THANK YOU BRO' JAKE EDWARDS, MARTY STRO' STRONG, ROCK GIRL ELESE AND EVERYONE AT VANCOUVER CANADA'S ROCK 101 FOR A SATISFUNKINGLY GOOD MORNING.

CLASSIC ROCK 101, once again, made DJZigZag (Bill Reiter) feel like he was an integral part of the madness-in-the-morning at Vancouver's much-loved and top-rated Bro' Jake Show.
Thank you to Da Bro', Da Stro' (Martin Strong), Rock Girl Elese, Audio Producer Mark Tucker, Neil "Sweetness" McCrae, Josh Barkoff and all those who make this Classic Rock program the well-oiled machine it is.
Thanks also, for allowing Classic Rock 101 to morph into Classic Soul 101.
A morning highlite for ZigZagZ was the look of joy on everyone's faces listening to Millie Jackson, Little Richard, Vicki Anderson & James Brown, Little Milton Campbell, Clarence Reid and The Isley Bros.


















DJZigZag asks Marty Strong if he doesn't get a lil' bit excited

DJZIGZAG (Bill Reiter) VISITS VANCOUVER CANADA'S CLASSIC ROCK 101 ON WEDNESDAY JANUARY 7th TO SPIN SOME OUTTA SIGHT 1968-1978 GROOVIN' BLUE VINYL !!!


On the morning of Wednesday, January 7th, sometime after 8:00 a.m. (Pacific Standard Time) DJZigZag offers the VINYL sound of CKLG-FM'S 'Groovin' Blue' to Bro' Jake, Marty, Elese, Josh and the other mad hatters at Canada's No. 1 Rock Radio Station - ROCK 101.
Along with humourous banter and genteel jibing, you'll hear the sounds of Groovin' Blue's first incarnation (1967-1969).

Bro' Jake's cru and DJZigZag plan to FUNK UP THE ROCK with The Isley Brothers, Millie Jackson, Little Richard, Wilbert Harrison, James Brown & more - bringing the 60's New World African Music era of music to the ears of Vancouver's Rock Nation.
