Sammy’s “Top Rock Countdown”



Top Rock Countdown is a 2 hour weekly show where Sammy counts down anything he wants. One week might be his favorite party songs, the next his favorite band NOT in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame or the best songs from a year or decade.




Because listeners love countdown shows and your audience loves Sammy Hagar. Sammy’s funny and easy going, has a big personality and loves telling stories drawing from his years in the business.





“The Red Rocker’s music mix and blend of ‘only from the mouth of Sammy’ banter is exactly what our weekend programming needed. And tequila sales in town are up 57%. A true win-win!” – Mike Quinn, OM/ KDBX


“Sammy Hagar’s Top Rock Countdown is a great way to spice up your weekend! Sammy adds his own spin to Classic Rocks biggest hits, and even digs a little deep for some fun stuff that you hadn’t heard in a while! Great way to wake up on a weekend morning, or wrap up your weekend!” – Larry Mac, PD/KLPX


“Everyone’s talking about Sammy Hagar on weekends,…hell, even the boss loves Sammy Hagar’s Top Rock Countdown! (fact)” – Debi Star, PD/KLOO


“It’s cool to have a countdown show that thinks outside the box… or the Three Lock Box!” -Brady Benton, PD/KKZU


”We like Sammy’s show because he’s excited, passionate and a little out of the ordinary. His weekly themes are always refreshing, and his stories of being on the road are very interesting!” – Fred Miller, PD/WWMJ


“I love the Top Rock Countdown! What a great concept, have the guy that’s been a HUGE part of the Classic Rock Format host a show that features the best of the best of the format. Hearing the stories first hand from those years is perfect. If your station plays classic rock, but doesn’t play this show I would wonder why you are in radio.” – Jamie Osborne, PD/KXRC


“When we had the opportunity to pair up the Legendary Red Rocker Sammy Hagar with the 25 year heritage of WXRX it was an easy decision. It made perfect sense. No sooner than we announced that the show was debuting the sales department had a sponsor lined up. It sounds amazing on the air and we couldn’t be more excited to have Sammy on our airwaves!” – Jim Stone, PD/WXRX


“We are excited and so are our listeners! Sammy Hagar is one of the biggest names in Rock ‘n’ Roll and his show is a perfect fit for KGON. We will continue to dominate weekends in Portland with a great show like this!” – Tim Taylor, MD/KGON
