Marquette, MichiganSeptember 24th, 2016 – When I say “quite a night” I really mean it! From 6:45pm through 12:15am the phone rang nonstop on American Country Gold on 103-FXD and WFXD.com. In some cases when I pick up the phone and the listener tells me they want to request a song I regrettably have to tell them the last Saturday of the month is Elmer’s Pick Night. That’s right–all Saturday night long it was difficult for me to watch the phones ring because I couldn’t always answer them. Either way, I did inform you that it was Elmer’s Pick Night on American Country Gold!

All week long no matter where I go my voice gets recognized! I was recently at a business in beautiful downtown Gwinn to get my car fixed. The mechanic actually stopped what he was doing just to come out front to meet me. What an honor! I signed an autograph for him, shook his hand, and played his request on my radio show for Saturday night on American Country Gold.

Since it was Elmer’s Pick Night I did catch up on PAGES of requests and dedications that poured in over the past couple of months. I thank you for not calling in on Saturday night during the show.

I’m planning on coming out to the River Rock Lanes in Ishpeming this coming Thursday, September 29th at 6:30pm for the Steamin’ Summer Sauna Giveaway with Premium Pole Buildings and Storage Sheds! If I can make it I plan to have Elmer Aho License Plates and will sign autographs for you. Just make sure you bring along your invite.

See you next Saturday, October 1st from 7pm to Midnight for American Country Gold on 103-FXD and WFXD.com! Reach me next Saturday as I’ll be taking requests and dedications once again–361-WFXD, that’s 361-9393–or email elmer@wfxd.com. Enjoy your week!

LISTEN – FULL SHOW – Elmer Aho brought you Elmer’s Pick Night on American Country Gold Saturday September 24th 2016.mp3

Recognized by the Michigan Association of Broadcasters – American Country Gold with Elmer Aho on 103-FXD and WFXD.com!

Here’s Adam in the MQT Fox Sports Car!

Marquette, MI  –  September 23, 2016  –  We had a great time in the NMU Homecoming Parade today. We had a number of the guys from Great Lakes Radio driving our Vans in the parade. Adam Carpenter led our pack in the MQT Fox Sports Car, with Walt Lindala from the Sunny Morning Show in the Sunny Van! Bill followed rocking out in the WRUP van with Joe ending our caravan in the Fox Sports Box Truck.

Around 5:30 PM the parade started on Fair Avenue before we turned onto Third Street for the main procession. The streets where packed with college kids and community members waiting for their chance at some candy and to see all the best floats. This year was a pretty exciting event with it also being a 50th Reunion for a number of NMU Alums. The parade was led by a firetruck and the ROTC.

Here it is! The tank float that shoots green confetti.

The football boys had a massive group as usual, but they got a surprise when young kids countered the football players plan to throw water balloons by striking first!. The theme for all of the on campus residencies was board games! Each hall that participated had a float that matched some board game. Hunt hall had a very well designed float designed after the game “Sorry”. Spalding Hall also had a great float with a fun play on the game “Operation”. Their float included a painting of Wild Cat Willy as the patient being operated on! And of course, my old residency, Spooner Hall, had a great float as well! However, the most impressive float in my opinion was the Alpha Gamma Delta float made include an working tank that shot out wildcat green confetti.

Everyone seemed to have a great time at the event with candy in the streets and a perfect fall evening for the event. Check out a gallery of over 70 photos of this years NMU Homecoming Parade!
