Fridays 5 PM
Prior to Murray Saul’s weekend “Get Down, there were no on-air destinations transitioning the workday to the weekend. Initially conceived as a prank, the Friday Get Down evolved into the most-listened to feature on any Greater Cleveland radio station in the mid 1970’s. Like the music on oWOW, Murray’s Get Down messages are timeless. The Slave Driver is more portentous than ever and marijuana is now socially acceptable and nearly legal. Every Friday at 5, oWOW features a Timeless Get Down from the past, which stands up well in present. Like the Timeless Rock we play, the epistles of the Get Down remain relevant today. Encircling the Get down is the original version (with strings and back up singers) of Bruce Springsteen’s “Born To Run,” the rare version that was played before the Get Down,” and followed by “Friday On My Mind” by Earthquake and “Cleveland Rocks” by Ian Hunter and Mick Ronson. oWOW added the pre-Get Down Rock & Roll Calisthenics, which begin at 4:45 PM with the Sugarbabes’“Livin’ for the Weekend,” The J. Geils Band’s “No Anchovies, Please” and a Led Zeppelin-James Brown mash-up, “Whole Lotta Sex Machine.”
