Ishpeming, Michigan – Great weather and happy spectators added to the fun as the Ishpeming 4th of July Parade for 2015 kicked off at 10:30 a.m. Just before heading down 3rd Street of Ishpeming on a route that would eventually bring the parade through downtown, the Great Lakes Radio (GLR) staff gathered for a group picture, gave thanks for their freedom, and then they were off into the parade.
Most years, the Sunny Van (Official Vehicle of Sunny 101.9 – Sunny FM) , The Classic Rock Van for 98.3 WRUP, and the 103 FXD Truck (WFXD 103.3 FM) are placed closer to back of parade, but with additional representatives from newer stations of the Great Lakes Radio Family of stations like Fox Sports Marquette (105.1 FM), GTO (Good Time Oldies on 97.5 FM), WRPP 92.7 FM Escanaba, and so on, there were a lot of people to coordinate and lots of candy to distribute, so it was nice to get a position much closer to the front.
Tossing the candy and featured by GLR in the parade was Adam Carpenter of Adam Carpenter’s Outdoor Show on 103 FXD. The show returns to its roots Monday, July 6th. The Outdoor Show will feature hunting and fishing news, outdoor reports from all over the U.P., Country Outlaw Cuts, Bluegrass, and other country music. To learn more about Adam Carpenter’s Outdoor Show on WFXD 103.3 – FXD 103 – Today’s New Hit Country, listen to this Interview with Adam on The 8th Day Morning Show (9a-10a, Saturdays on Sunny 101.9) that aired just before the 4th of July Parade on The 8th Day Morning Show on Sunny.FM.
