Sunday morning

For you early risers and insomniacs out there, we’ll be on radio in Philadelphia on Sunday, Oct. 24, in the wee hours. At 5:30 a.m. and again 6 a.m., we’ll be on 92.5 WXTU-FM and 96.5 WIRED FM, in an interview with Lora Lewis on her Philadelphia Focus program. We’re told that WXTU is the biggest country music station in the region with a signal that extends to New York. WIRED is a hits and hip-hop station.
