Members of our airstaff took time to reflect on John's success and we put together a photo gallery of some of John's finest moments during his extremely successful career. Enjoy photos of celebrties, rockers, behind the scenes moments and more.
This morning we played a rare John Lennon demo, one of the most bluesy he'd ever do, and we featured a 'no bass/drums' mix of a classic Paul and Wings song.
This week we featured a rare early BBC track from '62, an oft-overlooked Lennon song and a Lennon-McCartney cover (sung in French) by a famed British singer.
We had such a great time at our live broadcast at The Green Parrot in Newtown! Thanks to everyone who came by, and thanks to The Weeklings for ROCKIN' IT!!
This morning we played a song which began as a Ram jam that Paul would write for Roger Daltrey, and we heard some beautiful Beatles harmonies from Rock Band.
The Annual John DeBella Turkey Drop is the largest one day food gathering event in Philadelphia. John and the MGK air staff spread out around the tri-state area on November 21 (6a-9a) collecting turkey & monetary donations for Cityteam Philadelphia, an organization that provides holiday meals to less fortunate families in the Philadelphia region.
Today (10/19) in 1979, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers released their landmark album, Damn The Torpedos. The MGK airstaff, still reeling from his passing, reflects on what the album meant to them.
It was a potpourri of rare tracks, solo songs, live recordings and Beatles favorites on this morning's show, plus we paid tribute to Charlie T. Wilbury Jr. (Tom Petty).
Philadelphia’s Classic Rock, 102.9 MGK presents On The Record- a weekly podcast from the MGK airstaff that features personal stories that go behind-the-scenes.
