Listener Comments and Reviews

What is the music artist line up you are playing tonight. I don't get to listen to your station very often and I would love to know who I am listening to. So could I somehow get the name of the song and artists from 9pm on. Would be appreciated thanks

The Two Wheels and Tweed Social Club is pleased to bring this stylish and family friendly event back to our beloved Quad Cities. If you have never witnessed or participated in a “Tweed Ride”, you are in for quite a treat! Modeled after the original London “Tweed Run”, riders have fun reproducing the traditional English attire and spirit of a bygone era. The riders will travel downriver to Credit Island Park where they will enjoy a picnic lunch, live music, and a special Tweed presentation of “Sunday in the Park Alive” by Chuck Oestreich. The ride will conclude with awards for “Most Dapper Gent”, “Most Fashionable Lady”, “Best Vintage Bike”, “Most Creative Bike” and of course the coveted “Best Moustache”. Ride itinerary: 9:00am to 11:30am – Registration Riders depart at Noon 1:00 – 2:15 Picnic at Credit Island Park’s “Seurat Statue Garden”. Complimentary tea, cider, and scones provided by the Two Wheels and Tweed Social Club. Musical entertainment by the Quad-Cities Ukulele Club followed by a live performance of “Sunday in the Park Alive”. 3:00 to 3:45 – Tandem bicycle drag racing (drag attire optional) outside the Driftwood Pub. 4:00 to 5:30 – Awards presentations and bike raffle back at the Village Theatre. Awards presented for Most Dapper Gent, Most Fashionable Lady, Best Vintage Bike, Most Creative Bike, and the coveted Best Moustache! 6:00 to midnight – After ride party at Rudy’s Cantina. Cost to ride is free with donations accepted to benefit River Action . Donors will receive a souvenir armband and be eligible to participate in the awards contests and prize giveaways. Additionally, the Two Wheels and Tweed ladies will be selling their handmade “Tweed Flowers” for their “Flowers to End Fatalities” drive with the proceeds benefiting the Iowa Bicycle Coalition’s campaign to end fatal bike crashes. Back Story: Years ago, bicycle fanatic Tim Nelson stumbled across the London Tweed Run while researching how to make his own cold weather riding gear using thrift store clothing. Today, Tweed “Rides” can be found all over the world and Tim longed to see one in The Quad Cities. You may recognize Tim from his many exploits with the River Benders Cycling Group. Tim can often be seen in his woolen “plus four” knickers, colorful argyle socks, or perhaps even a kilt as his “Big Dummy” model cargo bicycle transports him to the local grocery store, pub, or cycling event. Tim also sits on the Board of Directors for the Iowa Bicycle Coalition and is a member of the Quad-Cities Bicycle Club.

Do you present the radio show "Says You" from your FM Radio Station. If so, when is it scheduled? I am a graduate of St Ambrose College class of 1959. My aunt, Lucille Dodd is blind and age 100. She lives at Mt Alverno in Clinton, Iowa. She would enjoy that program out of Chicago. I will let her know.
