The music starts at 10 with Chuck Collins playing the best oldies from the 60's to the mid 80's. 1590 WAKR was there from the very beginning of pop music on the radio and we are committed to keeping this uniquely American art form on the air!

Chuck Collins - mid days 10 - 3
Program Director, Mid Day Host, 1590 WAKR. Chuck began his career in the early 70’s, part of the original cast in a Cleveland radio footnote called M105. He came to Akron in 1988. “After learning the craft, the art and honing the skill some, I wake up everyday knowing that I am one of the luckiest people on the planet: I love what I do! Keeping the flame of 1590 WAKR, a vital and historic Radio Station burning brightly is not a job, it's a privilege. Add to that I get to compile and manage a library of songs we all grew up with, well, just try to drag me out of here.” Chuck is also operations director for Rubber City Radio Group, WAKR/WQMX/WONE.

Rick Allen - 7pm to mid
It's hard to say when Rick Allen began his career in radio. It is likely that his daycare had a small radio station that he was doing morning drive. Today Rick not only plays Oldies when we don't have sports on WAKR in the evening, but he can be heard on all the radio stations of the Rubber City Radio Group; 97.5 WONE, and 94.9 WQMX. Rick has worked with Chuck and RCRG's Senior Vice President of Operations Nick Anthony since he was 16 years old. Listen to Rick on nights with the Cavs or Tribe are taking the night off.
