Chicagoan thanked for suggesting “Enema Of The State” at Riot Fest

During a Twitter exchange last month, “Malort Mami” — (@opeitsmia) — was hoping to drop the bug in Mark Hoppus’ ear about playing Enema Of The State from front-to-back when Blink-182 hit up Riot Fest this fall.  I told Mia that Chicago would owe her a big thanks for the suggestion if it came true:

This week, it did!  We learned that Blink will indeed play the album in full for us — to celebrate the 20th anniversary of its release.  So — we decided to give Mia a surprise thank you gift on behalf of the city.  Listen in below — you never know when 101WKQX will reward you for your love of alternative and Chicago.  — [eric]
