WBGO Hosts 4-Hour Aretha Franklin Tribute August 24




From WBGO 88.3FM:

After an overwhelmingly positive response to the Aretha Franklin tribute last Saturday, August 18, Rhythm Revue is hosting another Aretha Franklin special this Friday, August 24, from 8:00 pm-12:00 am on WBGO in Newark, NJ. 

Four hours of Aretha Franklin’s music, including a live concert recording captured at the Fillmore West, had WBGO listeners swaying to the beat and sharing personal stories of the singer. Jeh Johnson, former Secretary of Homeland Security and NYC native, enjoyed the Aretha Franklin special so much he is planning to tune in Friday for the encore! This time, listeners can visit WBGO.org and click on the “Tell Us YOUR Aretha Franklin Story” link at the top of the page to share their personal experience with the singer.

WBGO is the global leader in Jazz radio and reaches a weekly audience of more than 400,000 in our metro area via 88.3FM.
