Screamin’ Scott

Weekdays 7:00 p.m. - 12:00 a.m.

Over the years Iv’e got to do some incredible things with WRIF over the years. Getting to sing along side one of your Rock Idols is one off my bucket list. Dateline Sept 11 2011 was one of them. The Great Guitar player and Detroit Legend played with The Rockets, Cactus,Buddy Miles , and Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels. Ted Nugent once said  “I’m the only guy that plays that hollow body jazz guitar and it’s because in 1960 I saw Jimmy McCarty creating those big fat full chords like I do on “Stranglehold” I learned that from Jimmy McCarty. Jim has played along side Jimi Hendrix ,Alice Cooper ,Iggy Pop,Bob Seger,even won a Grammy with Thee Les Paul . Nervous as hell but having maybe a bit of Liquid Courage I got to sing The Rockets/Fleetwood Mac Classic “Oh Well” and to Jim’s suggestion Grand Funk’s Some Kind Of Wonderful. A Dream come true but still on my bucket list will be for Jim McCarty to play with my Side band “Chit.”

Born in Mt Clemens, Screamin has been rockin' the Riff airwaves for 23 years. When he's not out rockin' the streets, you can find him in his rock room, where he collects jukeboxes and classic pinball machines. Screamin also has his very own Rock cover band called " Chit" playing all over the Metro Detroit Music scene
