On Wednesday May 18, 2011, we had yet another rock & roll history-making luncheon. It was all about fifties and sixties rock and roll. We took a stroll down memory lane to the days when Philly was the epicenter of this wonderful music. It began with our MC, former Broadcast Pioneers president and chairman of the board, and long-time WIBBAGE Good Guy, Frank X Feller, who kept the program moving along. It was an afternoon filled with once in a lifetime moments.

We had a tremendous line-up of guests and speakers including Danny and the Juniors (with members Joe Terry and Frank Maffei), member Kenny Jeremiah of the Soul Survivors, member Billy Carlucci of Billy and the Essentials, Mike Volpe, local singing star, and member Maura McKinney Mastro (daughter of legendary broadcaster Jack McKinney). Mike Volpe also introduced us all to his young protégé, Kyle Brody.

It all took place at the beautiful Bala Golf Club, 2200 Belmont Avenue in Philadelphia, just minutes away from Channels 6, 10 and 17, plus the radio stations in Bala Cynwyd. Meet and greet (networking) started at noon with lunch served at 12:30 pm.
