- Hound Dog - Elvis Presley
- Who Let the Dogs Out - Baha Men
- Giving the Dog a Bone - AC/DC
- Animal - Def Lepard
- Puppy Love - Donny Osmond
Be sure to say hi if you see her roaming the showroom, and be sure to "Give the Dog a Bone," and you'll be fast friends!
Listen to the Music on WOW Radio in Wallingford, CT!
Currently, we are an online streaming internet radio studio inside the Toyota of Wallingford dealership in Wallingford, CT. In the future, we hope to be a full-fledged FM radio station broadcasting station on 102.1-FM at the dealership on Route 5 within the next several months once FCC approval is achieved.
The effort, which will be audible throughout New Haven County and down to Stamford and available online and with an app, awaits final Federal Communications Commission approval. Landry said that the station already has a transmitter that has been tested, meaning that FCC approval could come at any time.
Stream online today, and let our musical collection from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s "WOW" your day
