Bob & LBF in the Morning

A nice surprise!

As we go through life, the nice little things that happen can brighten our day in ways we did not expect. Let’s face it, life is tough these days with the high cost of everything, foreign and domestic issues that you wish you could drown out etc. So we present the 11 most delightful unexpected moments of life.

The funny thing is, besides finding money, they are mostly little things that make us smile. Making people smile is not that hard to do and it goes a long way to make someone’s day a lot brighter.

It really is the little things

Let’s face it, it be too far fetched for some huge moment to occur in your daily life. Sure, we play Mega Millions and Powerball with the hopes of getting fabulously wealthy for only a two dollar ticket, but wouldn’t winning a hundred bucks feel good too?

Doesn’t it feel great if a stranger pays you a compliment? Most of us a very reluctant to do just that.  It’s kind of sad that today we are afraid to talk to strangers, let alone tell them that they’re having a great hair day. I personally would love to hear that!

Music to our ears!

We love that people find joy in what we do at WROR. It seems as if hearing your favorite songs is always a major source of happiness.  What is it about the pleasure of hearing your jams that instantly perks your ears and puts a smile on your face?  You don’t get the same satisfaction when you pull up the song on your phone. That’s we still love radio!

A new poll found listening to THIS RADIO STATION could be one of the highlights of your day. Maybe your whole week!
