Thursday, December 6, 2018. The HitRadio day started off at midnight with 6 hours of classic HitRadio music and original jingles, sweepers, and IDs from the mid 1990s.
Mike Bonte & Brianna Testa made a "questionable" entry into the station at about 5:00am, and Mike Gavin got things rolling with an early sign on at 6:00am. The station was live for the rest of the day, with a total of 9 HitRadio personalites making up 18 hours of programming.
The mood in the lounge was festive as many other HitRadio personalities returned for a visit, and to share stories, laughs, and a whole lot of terrible music. The station didn't clear out until about 10:30 that night, and Ian Lainof made a very poignant signoff just before midnight over the introduction to "Baba O'Reilly."
Many that were there that day have mentioned that the presence of Irish John Kiernan could be felt in the building, with some even commenting that the FM signal somehow sounded like it should have in the 1990s. This is despite the fact that nothing was changed in regards to the station configuration or processing. It was a true memorial. - Mike Bonte
