The Free Beer and Hot Wings Show is a syndicated hall of fame talk radio show based at WGRD in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The show is hosted by Gregg Neuenfeldt (known professionally as Gregg "Free Beer" Daniels), Chris "Hot Wings" Michels, Joe BF Gassman, Producer Steve, and Justin. The show is syndicated throughout America, and is distributed by Compass Media Networks.


In early 2016, Eric Zane was fired from the show following what turned out to be numerous disagreements with the parent company.

The Free Beer and Hot Wings Show has also guest hosted The Dan Patrick Show on multiple occasions.

Holiday Break-in

Each December, the show solicits the nomination by their listeners of needy families to be the recipients of the Holiday Break-in for those unable to buy holiday gifts. Once the recipients are selected, participating radio affiliates break-in to the houses of these families (with the assistance of the nominator, a locksmith, and local police) and bring the holidays where there would be none.


The Free Beer and Hot Wings Show won the Michigan Association of Broadcasters award in 2005 2006, and 2007.

Free Beer and Hot Wings won the RadioContraband Rock Radio Award for "Syndicated Morning Show of the Year" in 2013 and 2014
