lin 3851 About Lin Brehmer
Nothing much survives from Brehmer's high school years except rumor and innuendo. He distinguished himself as the starting pitcher for the varsity baseball team from 1969 to 1972. He also spent winters in a Kelly-green Speedo as a member of the McBurney swim team. All pictures were destroyed by the government. College radio seduced him in the summer of 1974 at Colgate University. So did his future wife. After a collegiate experience of one part pocket billiards and two parts obscure literature seminars, Brehmer turned to WQBK-FM in Albany, New York for a job in January, 1977.
Dubbed the Reverend of Rock and Roll, Brehmer drew on the influence of Old Testament prophets and AC DC to fashion a radio program designed to break down rational consciousness. When this didn't work, Brehmer accepted a job in 1984 at WXRT, Chicago. Brehmer spent '84 to '90 as the Music Director of WXRT. During that time he lived in the bleachers, learned to match wines with food and demonstrated a predilection for extolling rock bands that no one would ever listen to. Lin was named "Music Director of the Year" by trade magazine, The Friday Morning Quarterback, in 1987, 1988 and 1990. In 1990, the Hard Report's readers chose Brehmer as the "Music Director of the Decade. This last award made just as much sense as a Playgirl article in 1985 naming him as one of America's Sexiest D.J.'s. C'mon! His picture is right in front of you!
In 1990, Brehmer accepted a job as the program director of KTCZ in Minneapolis because Chicago just wasn't cold enough. In Minnesota, he learned to ski. And as a Chicago baseball fan, he enjoyed a whole new experience. The Minnesota Twins played in a tournament known as the World Series. Excited by the prospect of the Cubs or White Sox being allowed to participate in such an event, Brehmer moved back to Chicago almost immediately after the conclusion of the 1991 fall classic. Nursing bad knees, Brehmer failed to secure his dream job: vending cotton candy at sports arenas. Instead, he began an odyssey as the morning D.J. of WXRT that continues today. Lin Brehmer continues to find spiritual direction from Keith Richards.

Lin: Listening again to Randy Newman's "Rednecks", I wonder: what are the best songs you simply can't play on the radio, and what have been the consequences when you have played them anyway?

Val's Halla Records will have live music throughout the day and maybe even an appearance by WXRT's Lin Brehmer and Terri Hemmert. (The radio DJs stopped by last year and we are crossing our fingers for their return!) At Oak Park Records, Hefflefinger's wife will bake her famous cookies, which have become a Record Store Day tradition.
