Hit After Hit; Smash After Smash; Blockbuster After Blockbuster. Here's another "monster" lunch where the "stars" don't wait to come out at night. They're there at lunchtime!
Our next Broadcast Pioneers luncheon is another "Rock & Roll Special!" It will be held at the Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 19th (that's the third Wednesday of the month). Meet and greet is at 12 noon. Lunch will be served at 12:30 pm.
Our MC for the afternoon will be Cool Bobby B. His Doo-Wop oldies show can be heard on SiriusXM Radio.
