Hello everyone…today,one day removed from our 2nd Annual George Michael Birthday Music Special was a historical broadcast for our station. We did record listener numbers having 319 total listeners,our second highest total behind only the 501 listeners we had for our Daryl Hall Birthday Special last October 8th. I am very proud and pleased we achieved these record number of listeners and I want to thank everyone who participated in these great numbers,together we all made difference and our station was heard all over the world as we had listeners in five different countries,Morocco,Germany,United Kingdom,Canada and the United States. Our show yesterday was truly a special event that did better than even my expectations and I’m looking forward to better things next year.
Special thanks go out to REWINDNation member Kelly Lauer who is an part of The George Michael Legacy Project http://thegmlegacyproject.org who’s charities continue to honor George’s philanthropic legacy. Please visit this website and help wherever you can.
An amazing event is coming to Philadelphia,Pa.(my hometown) this September 23rd at The Settlement Music School located at 416 Queen Street in Philadelphia as International recording artist and longtime bandmate to George Michael Deon Estus will be doing a exclusive meet and greet and along with talking about old times with George Michael as well as his solo career. This great event will also have a silent action with classic George Michael/WHAM! memorabilia and an opportunity to purchase a beautiful Freedom Bracelet.
