On today's (7-25) River Mornings With Melissa and Jack:
- VA Tech Goes Viral
- A Virginia Tech student running for Homecoming Queen wrote a letter to SubPop Records, Nirvana's old record label, requesting that Nirvana record a spot to help her secure a victory in the contest. She promised that 'the video will be on YouTube' and that, 'we can include links to downloads, Twitter and Facebook pages', in an effort to help Nirvana gain better visibility. Ummm... What the hell? Smells like teen spirit, I guess? Click here
for the full letter.
- River Birthday BASH
- Today Mel and Jack gave away more passes to the huge 103.7 River Birthday Bash, happening at Innsbrook on August 7th. Sugar Ray, Fastball, Vertical Horizon, Smashmouth and Gin Blossoms are set to rock out for The River's 3rd b-day. Tickets are still available - grab em' here
