Morning Show Scope: WRKT (Rocket 101)

Editor’s Note: Make sure you visit The Press and Tower tomorrow for our Halloween special…Classy 100’s Ron Arlen helps us with a special remembrance and I’ll give you a hint: you won’t have to read the post “backwards” to get the real message.

This is the third in our series of excerpts from Erie radio morning shows. We call them “scopes,” where we eliminate all of the commercials and music to “telescope” and focus on the air personality content.

The Rocket 101 Morning Crew of Mojo and Nat have the distinction of being Erie radio’s longest running morning show, having been together for 15 years. Allen Carpenter as AC joined the crew last spring. Rocket is tied for third place in the Spring 2008 book, obviously deriving much of their strength from the consistency of their morning show.

Take a listen to the scope and please offer your constructive comments, and I’ll weigh in sometime this weekend.

    Obviously a 2-fer Tuesday. But why only one Queen song? I will say though that if they had to choose one, Keep Yourself Alive is the greatest Queen song ever!!

    Queen song is the best song. Nice schedule for programs.
