In celebration of 97X's 40th Anniversary we are proud to announce the release of 97X-LP Volume 3. We're throwing a big party and getting the bands to play live.

Earlier this year we took submissions from a bunch of local bands and ten of them got enough votes to be put on wax. To make things even more special, we brought each of them into our studio and recorded new versions of their songs.

Now we have an awesome collection of Quad City bands printed on vinyl and it's free! Your first chance to get your hands on a copy will be at the end of this month.

Our album release party will be Friday, August 31st at RIBCO in the District of Rock Island. Join us for a night of great live music from Been There Done That, Northbrook, Alborn, and Heavyweight.

The 97X-LP, is made possible thanks to Miller Beer and Skylark Recording.

Speaking of 97X's 40th Anniversary... Tom Keifer of Cinderella will be playing a special concert in the District the following night. Join us September 1st as we celebrate 40 years on the air.
