Another great week of the 101 Riffs Of Summer on 101 WRIF Detroit’s Rock Station. This week, we featured more of the most iconic “riffs” of all-time, as we have been all summer, and will continue to do until the arrival of Fall.

This week, we featured epic riffs from rock greats like Metallica and Alter Bridge, along with several other classic jams. Make sure to listen Monday through Friday at 2pm for the daily “Riff Of Summer!” Plus, you’ll get two “riffs” on Two-Fer Tuesdays doubling up on some of your favorite WRIF bands.

In previous weeks, we’ve highlighted bands like Rage Against The Machine, Deep Purple, Jimi Hendrix, and more. The catalogue goes deep and it goes way back, covering all different aspects and angles of rock and roll throughout the years. Great “Riffs” happened back in the ’60s, and they’re still happening today. With the 101 Riffs of Summer, we hope to cover all of your favorites spanning across multiple generations and decades.
