Preston and Steve Campout for Hunger

Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

PHILADELPHIA — Every year the WMMR morning radio crew, Preston & Steve, hold a food drive to help feed hungry people in the Philadelphia area. They broadcast their show from inside a tent set-up at Xfinity Live next to the stadiums in South Philly. The many tons of non-perishable food items collected benefit Philabundance.

Plenty of celebrities and bands lend their support. This year The Record Company performed a free concert for anybody that made a donation. The Record Company is a hard rocking blues band out of Los Angeles, CA. Bassist, Alex Stiff, is a native of Wayne, Pennsylvania.

The Philadelphia Mummers

Friday, January 1st, 2016

South Philly — “The Philadelphia Mummers Parade features unique costumes, music, and pageantry. Crowds line Broad Street, from South Philadelphia straight through Center City. The climax of the parade takes place at City Hall and the PA Convention Center where the official judging takes place.”

The mummers started many years ago when residents of South Philly would dress up like women and parade through the neighborhoods. Now, a large parade takes place in center city every New Year’s Day.

The Philly Music Scene

Tuesday, October 27th, 2015

PHILADELPHIA — The local music scene has been suffering all across the USA. There is an oversupply and an under-demand of music. More and more artists have been forced to give away their music and/or play for free. With an oversupply of cheap music how can local music venues stay in business? Answer: they can not.

Recently, three famous Philly venues known for their support of local bands have abruptly closed their doors. The North Star Bar, Jus Java (in Norristown) and the Legendary Dobbs (on South Street) went out of business without notice cancelling all upcoming shows.
