105.7 the X – Under the Radar – January 12, 2014

I will never forget the first time I heard a JR WOLF song on the radio.

I will also never forget the first time I did not hear a JR WOLF song on the radio.

It was last Sunday night (January 12) and I was watching football and enjoying the company of good friends. During halftime, we found ourselves downstairs in my buddy’s basement, listening to the radio. He has a young daughter and the station on the radio was a little more bubblegum dance than I would choose for myself but we weren’t really paying attention anyway.

I realized I had left my phone upstairs and went to check it. I had a new text from a friend: ”Listening to you on 105.7″

“Augh!” I smacked my forehead.

I had forgotten to listen to ‘Under the Radar’, the local spotlight show for Central PA’s 105.7 the X WQXA FM.

The radio was on.

It was on and we just weren’t on the right channel.

I had submitted to the radio station two weeks week before and made it a point to listen to the show. The track was submitted before the 5th but was not featured so there was even more reason to tune in this week.

But there was a great game on and maybe we were enjoying ourselves a little too much, as only long time friends can do…and it completely slipped my mind. You know, to catch my song on the radio, after 24 years of thinking “hey, that would be cool.”


It was exhilarating though, to know that it had happened.

I knew I would not make that mistake again.

So, yesterday (January 19), I was over at a different friend’s house. Surprise, surprise: we were watching football. And I was showing him the *secrets of my amazing chicken wings.

My phone rings. It was a friend I hadn’t heard from in a while. I picked up.

“Hey, man! What’s up? How are you doing, buddy?”

“Alright, alright. I hear you’re doing ok.”


“I just heard JR WOLF’s ‘Rewind‘ on the radio.”

I fell down.

I promise, I am setting my alarm right now.
