Tune in Monday through Friday at 9 a.m. as The Hometown Guy dips into the Tide’s extensive music library for the “9at9″ feature. Most days the focus will be selections from a single year, opening a virtual musical time capsule and reminding us of what was going on while these songs were at their peak.

Eric will also be asking for input on future 9at9 segments – listen for upcoming monthly themes and let us know your suggestions!  You can contact Eric at hometownguyeric@tideradio.com.

Special thanks to Music Go Round for sponsoring the 9at9! They are in the business of buying, selling, and trading music gear. Reuse. Recycle. Rock. www.musicgoroundvirginiabeach.com
