Chicago’s WLUP “the Loop” Goes Out in a Blaze of Glory

Chicago’s longest-running class rock station WLUP “the Loop” got its revenge before being replaced by a Christian music station.

Chicago station “the Loop” has played classic rock in the windy city since 1977, but as of midnight Saturday night¬†WLUP 97.9 became a Christian music station.

And they went out in true rocker style.

The last three songs played before the station switched to Christian music were:

  • Iron Maiden – “The Number of the Beast”
  • Motley Crue – “Shout at the Devil”

and finally……

  • AC/DC – “Highway to Hell”

Luckily you can still listen to “the Loop” online at wlup.com
