iHeartMedia's WLLZ/Detroit will release a new vinyl album on August 25, entitled "Motor City Rocks 2023," to honor the station's rock legacy. "Motor City Rocks 2023" was a collaboration with Sound City Music executive producers Jason Hartless Sr. and Jason Hartless Jr. The exclusive 500-copy limited edition album was manufactured at Third Man Pressing in Detroit and will be available at record stores across the metro Detroit region.

The "Motor City Rocks 2023" vinyl album will include Mark Farner (Grand Funk Railroad), The Reefermen, Halloween, Cadillac Kidz, Adrenalin, Tino G's Dumpster Machine, Dave Edwards & The Look, plus a new version of "Common Ground" from Rhythm Corps. The album also features a live version of Ted Nugent's "Queen of the Forest" recorded live at Cobo Hall on New Year's Eve in 1988.

"There is no shortage of great rock bands in the Motor City. We released an album last year and had such a great response from our listeners and demand from record stores we thought, let's do it again. The names on this album are legendary," said PM Drive host Doug Podell.

"Detroit has such a rich rock n' roll history and we're proud to once again showcase some of the best the Motor City has to offer," added WLLZ Program Director Casey Krukowski.

In addition, a showcase concert featuring all the bands featured on the album is scheduled in Detroit for October 6 at Cadieux Cafe, October 7 at St. Andrews Hall and October 21 at Harpos.
