Y100Rocks.com reports, Everyone at Y100rocks.com wants to thank you for signing the petition to save modern rock radio in Philadelphia. The Y100 staff is blown away by all of the heartfelt e-mails that you and thousands of other Y100 listeners have sent. At the time this is being written, over 47,000 people have signed the petition.
In addition to thanking you, we wanted to let you know the official information about the “Save Y100” rally. We have not organized this rally; you, the Y100 listeners, have organized it! We support the efforts of the organizers with every ounce of our being. The Y100 staff will be there, and we hope that you and ALL of your friends will be there. Here’s the information:
Date: Saturday March 5, 2005 – RAIN OR SHINE
Place: Art Museum steps
Time: 3 pm – Don’t be late
It is absolutely essential that we maintain a unified and positive attitude at this rally. Our intention is not to say that “hip hop is crap,” or “Down with Radio One!” This is a “Save Y100” rally. The city of Philadelphia needs alternative rock, and this is our chance to let our voices be heard.
It would be great if you made posters with slogans on them, but PLEASE refrain from using curse words or vulgarity. We want the media that covers this event to see enthusiastic and valuable members of the community. The goal is to attract corporations that own radio stations in the Philadelphia area and make them want to help us find a home on the radio dial. A smart rally will get their attention in a positive way.
