2023 MODERN ROCK 500
The final 100 laps! Let's put our foot on the gas and enjoy the sh*t out of this crazy, crazy ride!
HEY! Thank you so much to every single one of you that tuned in, wrote on the message boards, hung out, shared the station. It really has been a special and hopefully big moment to see WOXY and all of their listeners come out and share such a special moment.
My dream for the past 5 1/2 years has been to see Inhailer Radio get the audience it deserves. I hope that lots of you and many more decide to stick around to see the next age of what Inhailer Radio can be :)
⚠️ FYI: The final recap email will be sent out a little later than usual, so don't be alarmed! It will include the entire countdown list in full. The archive of the broadcasting will also be available on our website soon, so stay tuned!
Thanks for tuning IN to Inhailer Radio and please stick around for a special post-countdown set with Inhailer's own Ken Laube :)
How much later? Do you know if we subscribed at the bottom if we will get the complete list with the Top 5 ?? filled in?
05 The Smiths - How Soon Is Now
04 Joy Division - Love Will Tear Us Apart
03 The Cure - Just Like Heaven
02 Radiohead - Creep
01 Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
Yep I was listening but I want to save the document.
Thanks to everyone who had a part of putting together the 97X Modern Rock 500. A great blast to go back to the party patio as I lived in Oxford in the early 90's and enjoyed the station and it's spin on modern rock/college music/alternative/new wave..and so on ; ). Good to hear many of the DJ's and remember chatting with a few as i would call up hopes of winning a Kroger gift certificate / Reds Tickets and items like a Cure catalog. Extra shout out to the PR person who gave a heads up to the Cincinnati Enq. as this is how I found out about it / have now been listening to your station. Hope to hear from the 97X DJ's again and more of those wonderful tunes. JFK
Good work, everyone. You've made the MR 500 your own.
What a yeoman's effort. Thanks, Inhailer.
The archive page is up and running! Enjoy.
Any success yet getting the MR500 archive working? It appears to be all loaded and ready to go, but it is still grayed out on the page. Thanks!
So, I know I asked this at various points in the MR500, but, do we have the list of the top ten bands as far as number of songs in the countdown? It was looking about halfway through that The Smiths would be hard to beat, but I was pulling for the B-52s. Now that I have seen most of the final days lists, I wonder if there are some surprises?
Hopefully Pete Riddle will weigh in soon, as I know he was keeping track.
We'll have a couple fun stats, including top bands and albums, included on the MR 500 page when the broadcast goes live. Coming SOON!
Just got one of the answers!
Thanks to all - the Inhailer.com team and everyone from 97X and WOXY - who worked so tirelessly to bring the MR500 back to life. I can't overstate how much it has meant to us 97X fans to hear our beloved DJs share their memories, replay throwback ads and segments, and "spin" the songs that defined the spirit 97X spirit. It was more than nostalgia. It was a family reunion. An affirmation. You gave us an experience we thought was lost forever. What a tremendous gift.
I am proud to be an Inhailer.com listener/supporter. Thank you!
Well said, Steve! ❤️❤️❤️❤️
From the moment it started Monday morning until the very end, I was nowhere near prepared for the impact this broadcast had. Some times were goosebumps, some were head banging, some singing out loud, but the most profound moments were where I was just blissfully unaware I was listening to a special broadcast, almost like it was just the regular old radio being itself. Talk about flashbacks. What I wouldn't give to have the old original freeform *gasp* WEBN or 90's WOXY back. Hell, I'd pay subscription again just to have pre-Sirius XM back. Radio ain't what it used to be.
So so true and as I said day one, it just boggles my mind that a REAL alternative radio station is not in Cincy. We are filled with corporate robot radio as is most of the country.
Thanks to everyone for all the work that went into this!
I hear you playing my boys to keep me hanging on!!
Thanks for such a great week! We listen to Inhailer in the car but I forget I can stream it. I'll be a better listener, cross my heart ❤️
We even have an app for your phone ;)
Great 500! Loved listening in my car again. Thanks Inhailer! Thanks 97X!
Long live the Future of Rock 'n' Roll, 97X!
What a way to kickoff the weekend, huh??
To any WOXY DJ's, we'd love to have you join the Inhailer Airwaves 😈
Sorry y'all, going way over schedule since I had to talk for 5 minutes straight this morning to kick it all off 😅
I don't think anyone minds 😉
make it last longer!
Thank you so much for these five days. To Inhailer. To the DJs. And to all of the rest of you who love them and this station as much as I do and made all of this so much fun, again. It's such a bittersweet reminder of the value of brilliantly curated music, something no algorithm can ever give us. I truly hope that this is not the last time we hear these voices - if not next year then some time down the road. But if it is, this has been a wonderful, unexpected gift that will not be forgotten by any of us.
Thanks so much for your kind words. 97X listeners were -- and are -- the very best. Mike Taylor was the mastermind behind the reboot, and Dave Tellmann's son Jack did yeoman's work in assembling the songs, breaks, old commercials, promos, and liners.
And thank you for this and the pod! I think I'm the 14th listener!
Love you Bake! Class act!
The past 5 days have been amazing. Thanks to everyone involved for bringing the #2023ModernRock500 back to life for one more trip around the track
