Good Food - Great Programs - Wonderful Times

Wednesday, April 20, 2016!

What a wonderful time!

Hit After Hit, Smash After Smash, Blockbuster After Blockbuster... Here was another "monster" lunch where the "stars" don't wait to come out at night. They're there at lunchtime!

This was our spring potpourri of speakers!" It was held at the Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia on Wednesday, April 20th (that's the third Wednesday of the month).

Our MC for the afternoon was member Jerry Del Colliano, publisher/editor of the media blog Inside Music Media. He was publisher/founder of Inside Radio, a trade publication sold to Clear Channel in 2002. Jerry has been Program director for two Philadelphia radio stations, air talent at five Philadelphia radio stations and was on-air talent at WFIL-TV, Channel 6.

Our speakers were all members and they were (in alphabetical order):

Jim Donovan, the new co-anchor of CBS 3's Eyewitness News This Morning
Harry Hurley, telephone talk radio host: the Rush Limbaugh of the Jersey shore
Scott Palmer, Phillies' Public Affairs Director, former WPVI News/Sports Anchor
Gary Shepherd, former WDAS personality, president/CEO of 3rd Floor Media

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.
