Wednesday, March 20, 2013

Our Broadcast Pioneers luncheon for March 2013 was a "Rock & Roll Special!" It was held at the Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia on Wednesday, March 20th (that's the third Wednesday of the month).

Our MC for the afternoon was Cool Bobby B. His Doo-Wop oldies show can be heard on SiriusXM Radio. For the uninitiated, Cool Bobby B is Broadcast Pioneers member Bob Backman, who was General Manager of Channel 61 here in Philadelphia for 5 years. Bob is currently President of WDRE-TV in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.

Our guests that afternoon were (in alphabetical order):

Mike Bove and Art Wilson of "The Tridels"
Stephen Caldwell of "The Orlons"
Billy Carlucci of "Billy and the Essentials"
Danny and the Juniors (featuring Joe Terry & Frank Maffei)
Nicky DeMatteo (had the big hit "Suddenly")
Johnny B. Hall of "The Star Fires"
Kenny Jeremiah, formerly of "The Soul Survivors"
Mark Stevens of "The Dovells"
Mike Volpe, who was with the The Duprees
Corky Warren of "Corky's Time Machine" TV Show

It all took place at the beautiful and historic Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue (across the street from the State Police) in the Wynnefield section of Philadelphia. Only minutes away from Channels 6, 10 and 17 and the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd.
