The WLOF bumper stickerAfter winning the Central Florida Battle of the Bands, hosted by WLOF Radio in Orlando, Florida, The Rocking Roadrunners began to perform at live broadcasts of WLOF special events. These broadcasts were called van-band events by the radio staff, because they involved the use of the WLOF van, and a performance by a live band broadcast over the radio stations coverage area. It was great exposure for The Roadrunners , and resulted in the band being booked for over a year in advance. That made it nice for planning on gear purchases to further compliment the band's appearance.

   Here's a photo of the guys fooling around the WLOF van in the parking lot of the Ivey's Department Store in Winter Park, Florida, just before a van-band event. The Roadrunners check the WLOF-Channel 95 van

And, here's a few more candid photos of the guys from that day...
