It was undoubtedly another fantastic week of the 101 Riffs Of Summer on Detroit’s 101 WRIF. This week, we featured some of the most iconic “riffs” of all-time…and some of my personal favorites, as well.

This week, we featured epic riffs from rock greats like White Stripes and Rise Against, 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.

If you missed any of the “Riffs” this week, check out the playlist below. Then, continue reading to hear about an awesome contest with a rocking Grand Prize!
