This will undoubtedly be a Memorial Day weekend unlike any in recent memory so we're going to mix it up musically with a Block Party weekend. Place your request below, let us know your name and where you're from. And if you know what time you'll be tuning in that'll be helpful too.

And let us not forget the reason behind Memorial Day, to begin with. That's to honor and remember the brave men and women who have fought and died while protecting our country. The holiday originated in the years following the Civil War but it wasn't until 1971 that it became a federal holiday. Thank you to all who serve and have served.

Join us starting this Friday from 3 PM until Monday at midnight for blocks of music each hour.
