If it's not a brunch beverage, that's totally okay with him.  Lee is part of Team Chicago and the host of Midwest Takeover Radio Show heard on Saturdays.  Lee covers the rock scene in the Midwest as well as Florida and pours a mean vodka and orange juice.  He also has a substantial collection of vinyl including more Prince albums than we thought possible.

Buddy Bear

The Hardest Rocking Bear in Florida!

Have you seen this bear?  Buddy is our station's mascot and loves to be anywhere the people are! You can find him at your favorite local rock show or even at festivals like Welcome To Rockville. Buddy is a fun-loving bear that just likes to party and sometimes joins the mosh pits when there's a crowd.  Buddy also enjoys charity events like Cupid's Undie Run and other causes that are near and dear to his little bear heart.   You never know where Buddy will show up next, but if you need a laugh at your event, just contact the station to find out how you can #GetThereWithBuddyBear!
