CFL Musicians! Here’s How to Get Your Music Played on 98.9 WMMO!

  • 10:34 am Friday, July 13th, 2018 by hildiwmmo

Every week on 98.9 WMMO’s Sunday Morning Acoustic, we feature a great artist with roots in Central Florida.

If you’re a great, local artist who wants to get played on Sunday Morning Acoustic, email me at hildi@wmmo.com.

Send a link to preview the song file, rather than an mp3, if you can. mp3 files are really large and get stuck in my mailbox.

Your submission should be rock-based and original.

We will need good quality audio for airplay and cannot accept YouTube files or something that was recorded on a cell phone.

Mick Jagger is Jinxing World Cup Matches

  • 7:56 am Friday, July 13th, 2018 by Denise Ryan

Poor Mick Jagger, England fans aren’t too happy with him right now. Apparently he’s a jinx when it comes to the World Cup.

Mick Jagger was at the semi-final match Wednesday between England and Croatia, obviously cheering on England.

Even before kickoff, fans were talking about superstitions and his attendance.

Well England lost. And everyone turned on poor Mick.

These superstitions surrounding Mick Jagger go back to 2010… every time he goes to a game, the team he supports loses.

In 2010, he attended the U.S. and Ghana match, cheering on the U.S. and the U.S. lost 2-1.

In 2014, he attended the Brazil and Germany [More]

New Details on Queen Biopic Movie

  • 8:16 am Thursday, July 12th, 2018 by Denise Ryan

So how do you portray one of the greatest frontmen of all time… not just Freddie Mercury’s look and his mannerisms, but his voice too?

First off, they had to find the right actor. When Denis O’Sullican, co-producer of Bohemian Rhapsody, found Rami Malik, they said that was it. There was never a second look, no doubt about it.

Malik, meanwhile, thought someone was playing a joke on him when he first got the offer. But then when it sank in, “I felt massive excitement … followed by the extreme, daunting weight of the thing.”

He had to learn the movements, Mercury’s dialect, [More]
