One response to “Broadcast Pioneers Sports Luncheon

  1. The Broadcast Pioneers and Gerry Wilkinson do a wonderful service to keeping the memory of Philly radio and TV alive. Mr. Wilkinson is helping me write a history of Philly rock radio. It is more than half done and features interviews with Bill Wright Sr., John Harvey, Michael Tearson, Ed Sciaky, and more. I hope to have it completed this year.
