Spend some time listening to Mix 106.5 recently and you'll likely hear an unshakable Bruno Mars hook, Taylor Swift's surprising dubstep leanings and even Britney Spears' voice on a will.i.am song.
But in a twist that could only happen in a football-crazed city like Baltimore, you will likely also hear motivational soundbites from Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis' laid over a Phil Collins classic.

Last Wednesday, Lewis -- who has played for the Ravens for his entire 17-year career -- announced that he would retire at the end of this season. Last Sunday's AFC Wild Card win over the Indianapolis Colts was Lewis' first since returning from a torn triceps injury.
