WFXF-FM Chicago Launches "The Garage"
NextMedia's “103.9 The Fox” is giving local bands in Chicago a forum to show off their talent. The Garage is a Sunday night program showcasing Chicago area artists and their original music. The Garage is hosted by the station’s morning personality (and PD) Ryan Wild and is produced in-house with assistance from afternoon host JP Peletis and producer/videographer Josh Aldis.
GM Jack Taddeo said, “There are very few radio stations in the country, let alone in a market the size of Chicago, on which unsigned bands can be heard. We have seen some impressive writing ability and extraordinary performance skills, and the artists have been very supportive and gracious about working with us." Program Director Ryan Wild added, “There are so many undiscovered bands in the Chicago area that deserve to be heard. To be able to give them a chance to shine is truly something we are extremely proud of. Rock local!”
