97.1 The Drive

The studios and offices for Chicago’s premiere radio brand for Classic Rock are located in Chicago’s Prudential Plaza. “The Drive” elicits a deep reverence for the music it plays and the artists who recorded it, released it, and continue to play it in large scale concert events.   But, The Drive doesn’t stop there—the station’s employees and personalities have translated this message of respect for the music to respect for the Chicagoland community, which is demonstrated by heightened awareness of our community service projects. The Drive is a musical escape for its audience, featuring the single most popular body of music ever created.  This is music that underscores pleasant memories throughout our lives–music that speaks to generations of people and the popular culture that adorns their lives.  This provides our core audience of 25-54 year old adults a platform for bringing attention to the issues facing our communities and to the efforts to address those concerns.
