“Let’s Go Cubbies” by Villa Park-based band The Fold to be official WGN Radio Cubs Song of 2012 season
WGN Radio morning host Jonathon Brandmeier today announced the winner in the station’s first-ever Cubs song contest. Throughout the month of February, the station solicited entries for the next great Cubs song and received over 300 entries from all over the country, and even Ireland. Three finalists were selected and posted at wgnradio.com for listeners to vote on which song should become the official WGN Radio Cubs Song of the 2012 season and played during the introduction to every Cubs broadcast on WGN Radio.
Over 8,000 votes were cast over the past two weeks, and the winning song was “Let’s Go Cubbies” by Villa Park-based band The Fold, which garnered 47% of the votes. The Fold will perform their song live during Brandmeier’s Opening Day broadcast on April 5 from the Captain Morgan Club at Wrigley Field.
The station’s website thanked listeners for submitting songs and voting, saying “the talent, effort and passion for the Cubs that was displayed was simply amazing!”
