(Philadelphia, PA…September 15, 2017) WRNB 100.3 FM and loyal Philadelphia listeners welcome home Lady B, afternoon talent and beloved legendary Philadelphia personality and DJ Touchtone, the fiercest blind DJ in the industry – home. With every right to stay home and recover physically and emotionally from their well-deserved vacation turned nightmare, after living through Hurricane Irma while on vacation in Sint Maarten (the DUTCH side of the island of ST. MARTIN), the two came home to hit the air and thank listeners for their prayers and well wishes.
“These two somehow managed to make a personal tragedy, a testimony of hope for our listeners,” said Karen Vaughn, Operations Manager, Radio One Philadelphia. “We are so grateful these two radio treasures weren’t stripped from us. I’m blown away at their resilience and thrilled they both found peace in expressing their story on the air.”
