Meltdown Headshot

The Core (With Meltdown)

In the 1990’s a new class of rock artists emerged and created a sound that defined a generation. Often displaced because it didn’t fit the mold of classic rock or new rock, an entire decade of revolutionary music has found a home in The Core.

Hosted by radio vet MeltdownThe Core is a two hour show that offers music and updates from the rock artists that thrived in the 90’s including Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Soundgarden, and U2.

“The 90’s era represents one of the biggest shifts of a musical direction in rock history. If you were 15 when Green Day released Dookie in 1994, you’re now 33 years old. If you were a senior in high school when Nirvana re-shaped the music world, you’re 38 years old and more than ready to reflect on those days gone by,” – The Core creator Steve Black

“This is the music that encompasses the CORE of my radio career. I played these songs when they were new. Once I heard the concept for this new weekly program, I had to jump on board” – Meltdown

Check out the core Saturday nights at 8 p.m. on Q103, Albany’s Rock Station

Schedule

Sa 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

A Bunny Picked Free Beer and Hot Wings Up at the Albany Airport? – #FBHWonQ103 [PHOTO]

The gang from Free Beer and Hot Wings arrived at Albany's airport late Thursday afternoon. Yes, we could have sent a big fancy limo to pick the guys up, but we didn't. That's just not our style. Instead we called in a VERY special guest to pick up Free Beer, Hot Wings, Eric Zane and Producer Joe. Luckily, we caught a picture of their "special driver" just before she hopped off to the airport.

Man Visits Albany Spa to Expose Himself

So apparently the women who work at an Albany area spa aren't there to see your junk, as evidenced by a man being arrested for doing just that. However he did call it a 'skin condition' which perhaps technical it is, but still not really something they can help with at the spa.
