Hi, It’s Craig Russell, host of The Afternoon Hustle here on Classic Hits 98.7 WFGR! I have worked in places all over Michigan, but that’s not important. I’m here in West Michigan now, eatin' Fred's Pizza (yum!) buying my milk at Meijer, and playing Classic Hits of the 60's 70's and 80's FOR YOU! Call, email or Facebook the show and be part of the fun!

A Grand Rapids Business Closing That’s OK.

Mark Sellers is closing the Viceroy. His downtown speakeasy-type bar is going to have new life as an expanded Stella's Lounge. Stella's has become quite the downtown hit. Cheap, strong drinks, retro style video games and pinball machines, and a stuffed burger that made national headlines.

A Whole New View Of The Lions!

OK, the Lions didn't look like world beaters in their win over St. Louis. Matt Stafford had to move the Bengals down field in the final minutes to secure the victory. So now the Lions are 1-0. They play the 49ers on Sunday. Will they win again? Who knows? But I do know one thing, a few members of the team might wear a little more under their uniforms!

Mad Men Does Rick Astley! [VIDEO]

Some people have a whole lot of time on their hands. I mean A LOT! Like the guy who recreated the Sir Mix a Lot classic "Baby Got Back" with 295 old movie clips. Now I'm not saying tying 295 movie clips together with a song about big butts isn't time consuming and an art form, but... So now a new video has popped up on You Tube with a Mad Men version of another iconic 80's song.

The 5th 3rd Burger’s Big, But Not THIS Big! [POLL]

If you have been to a Whitecaps game, or even if you haven't, most everyone in town has heard of a 5th 3rd burger. From it's national TV coverage on the Travel Channel, Food Network and others, to numerous web articles, the burger almost has a life of its own. Almost 5 pounds of hamburger, cheese, chili, toppings and bun served in a pizza box. Ordered by many, finished by few, the burger really stands for everything that is American. Big, bold and tough! BUT, far from the biggest hamburger ever made.

Do Clothing Companies Wonder Why They Are Close To Bankruptcy?

Is it because the people cooking the books at The Gap and Old Navy also seem to be designing the clothes? Last Year, Victoria's Secret made a Women's Michigan State t-shirt with their trademark "Pink" on the back...and the phrase "Hail to the Victors" on the front. The Michigan fight motto. Whoops!

One Of West Michigan’s Hottest Summers On Record Is Over… Sort Of

Labor Day MDA Telethon A Thing Of The Past

Ahh the long Labor Day weekend. In years' past, that used to mean on Sunday night, Jerry Lewis would start the 20 or so hour Labor Day MDA Telethon. A virtual Who's Who of stars and would-be stars entertained and company spokesmen brought out check after check. Then finally at 7pm on Labor Day Monday, Jerry would throw his arm back to the big tote board, and the new "bigger-than-last-year" total would flash, balloons would fall, and everyone felt good about themselves. This year, however, that is all a thing of the past.
