’Tis the middle of April with Spring in the air and our
thoughts, naturally, turn to love! From “April Showers”
to “Chanson D’Amour” the best in Pops is heard on WMCA
throughout the day. We sincerely hope that you’re enjoying
the daily habit of tuning in to 570 -- and the weekly habit
of picking up your free copy of WMCA’s Top 21 list. Let’s
make it a date for Pop Music (1-4 PM) and Music Makers
(7-9:30 PM)!
