The best way to start off the new year is with free stuff. In radio, free is our life. We hand out free things all the time like free food, free money, free trips, and more because it makes you happy and us happy too. A popular concert venue in Illinois is giving the Quad Cities something they can enjoy for free. Well, eight things they can enjoy for free: Concerts.

On Tuesday, The Rust Belt (533 12th Ave., East Moline) announced that for the second year in a row, they are holding a winter concert series but this series has a twist we can all get behind. All of the concerts in the series will be free.

What does free mean? It means you pay nothing. Notta. Nothin'. Nil. Zip. $0.

"How is this possible?" you might ask yourself. Well, with the help of Yabba Dabbas House of Glass, you don't have to pay a single dime to get into any of the shows.

The concert series will be called Winter Jams and concerts will take place on Saturday nights at The Rust Belt. Winter Jams begins on Saturday, January 13th, and all shows will be from 7-10 p.m.

Below is the schedule of who is playing and on what dates:

  • 1/13 - Jive Radio

You Could Own The Greatest House In The State Of Wisconsin

There's a home in Wisconsin that everyone in the state would call the best house on the market. The house is reasonably priced for the amount of money you could get out of it. Why does this house sound like a gold mine? Because it sits and looks directly at the heart of Title Town U.S.A., the legendary Lambeau Field, the home of the Green Bay Packers.
