"perfect for weekends"..."unparalleled"..."appointment radio"

THAT THING with Rich Appel is the only classic hits radio show that brings back the sound - not just the songs!


If you loved the era of fast-paced top 40 radio - where DJs talked up to the vocals, the jingles stood out, and the commercials were almost as good as the hits - you're sure to like THAT THING with Rich Appel


THAT THING is a three-hour celebration of that radio every weekend, highlighting those jingles, commercials and all the hits, with features such as “The Slow Dance Make-Out Song of the Week” and “The World’s Shortest Countdown,” plus songs carefully chosen to match each weekend's birthdays, anniversaries, holidays and other events.

THAT THING is, more than anything, about bringing the FUN back to radio every weekend.

THAT THING specials include January's "Tele-lection" and February's countdown of listeners' all-time favorite TV show themes, spring's "WOW!" countdown, May and June's Class Reunion specials, and "All Summer Songs, All Summer Long." 


THAT THING comes to you from the Chestnut Cabaret, where Inga handles the refreshments and Rich serves up the music. You can also join the fun on THAT THING's Facebook page  and Twitter feed.


THAT THING with Rich Appel airs every weekend on close to 100 stations across the U.S. and in four continents, several of which run it twice on Saturdays and Sundays.
