We’d be lying if we told you that when we arrived for Day 2 of the Radio 104.5 9th Birthday Celebration, we weren’t wondering how it could possibly compete with the excellent time we had on Day 1. The first day was filled with beautiful weather, an incredible crowd, and more good music than we knew what to do with. At the time, it seemed like a once-in-a-lifetime experience. So, in our minds, trying to do it all over again seemed almost impossible.
But lo and behold, we were pleasantly surprised. Day 2 of the Birthday Celebration was an absolute riot.
A Big ‘Thank You’ to Radio 104.5 and All of YOU!
For the second day, the weather was again remarkable, and the breeze coming off the water and into the hills of the Pavilion kept things from becoming stifling. The sold-out crowd was energetic and excited, and they really made it worthwhile.
Don’t get us wrong—the opportunity to see the Violent Femmes, Florence & The Machine, The Lumineers, Cold War Kids, and everyone else who delivered positively life-changing performances was really incredible.
But watching the crowd perk up and show us love whenever they saw the bright yellow t-shirts, or watching one of our huge orange-and-white beach balls take flight, or even seeing how excited people were when the team was walking around and handing out drink koozies–that is what really made our time out there special.
We love participating in events like this because they remind us why we do what we do. They help balance out the business side of things with the community side, and give us a bird’s eye view of the people we’re proud to call our customers. To say it was humbling may sound silly at first glance, but really–thank you to everyone who made us feel warm and welcome out there. We hope you remember us as well as we remember all of you.
Anyway, before we go, we just wanted to once again wish our friends over at Radio 104.5 a very happy birthday! Thanks for allowing us the opportunity to come be apart of it.
We’ll see you all next year!
