Bobby Holiday the New Morning Host at WDAS AM Philadelphia
A true radio veteran, Bobby Holiday returns to Philadelphia as the new morning host on 1480 WDAS AM "The Soul of Philadelphia." Holiday was the afternoon personality in the late 90's on Radio One's first urban station in the market WPHI "Philly 103.9."
During his previous tenure in Philly in 1999, Holiday generated buzz from local TV news stations who covered him as the crazy DJ who did his broadcast atop a T.G.I.Friday's restaurant until his beloved (pre-Donovan McNabb and Coach Andy Reid era) Philadelphia Eagles won a football game. Yes he slept there as well. In all he spent 20 days and 19 nights on the roof until the Eagles secured a victory.
Bobby revealed the following on his Facebook page:
