Eau Claire (WI) There are few forms of music that stretch across genres. That are as natural being played as a slow jam during the prom as they are at bar close. The music that makes us sing in the car and when we recognize others noticing us it only increases our volume.
The POWER BALLAD! Converge Radio 99.9FM is excited to announce the addition of the “Power Ballad Hour” program airing every Friday night 6-7pm starting April 24th. Hosted by Station Manager Scott Montesano and produced by Patric Tillery, listeners across the region will be given that emotional thrust into the weekend thanks to the likes of Bryan Adams, Richard Marx, Ozzy Osborne, Warrant and many others.
From retrospective love songs to ‘run through the wall’ hard rock these are the songs that make us impulsively turn the speakers up.
“Come Friday evening everyone has a smile on their face and the Power Ballad Hour is intended to exemplify those emotions we have” says Montesano. “Whether it’s date night, heading out to a ballgame or beginning a weekend trip, power ballads give us a chance to feel like we’re living through our own movie montage.”
“Power Ballads also have a sense of humorous sarcasm to them, a very self-aware notion, and who couldn’t use a decrease in severity in our current climate” adds Montesano.
The show will be available on 99.9FM and also via convergeradio.org.
