Meet Mike Emory, Founder of the Victory Gym on a Special IMPACT! Show Dedicated to Veterans Tuesday. May 10, 1pm - 2pm
A place for military veterans to workout and socialize is what Mike Emory's Victory Gym in Brownstone Township is all about. The club is a non-profit venture where there is no charge for first responders or any veteran who shows discharge papers from military service. Those who are not veterans also are welcome to use the facility for a monthly fee. The health club also serves as a place to hold meetings, engage in art therapy and explore martial arts. Joining the discussion is WHFR's own Veteran Mark Sheeler with first-hand experiences from the gym.
Join Pat Frisco Tuesdays from 4pm-6pm for a limited-time radio engagement called "Rollin' and Tumblin'". You may hear Sonny Boy Williamson blowing the harmonica on some 1950's blues singles, Chuck Berry laying down some early rock and roll rhythms, The Stones and Beatles taking it to another level, Jeff Beck and Eric Clapton with some heavy guitar sounds and/or the fusion of psychedelic rock and jazz from the late 60's/early 70's. All carefully assembled into a package that may or may not make perfect sense. Tune in and Turn On! That's Rollin' and Tumblin' starting today at 4pm!
