Here's the type of info I'm looking for, just to give you an idea -pick one, several or all! I'd a appreciate anything you have to offer What it's best known for? Well known attractions or businesses (I can actually sneak you in a free plug!) Funny quirks (the red light in the middle of town hasn't worked in 10 years etc) Quick historical facts (don't get all "Wikipedia" on me- just a few bullet points will do) You can copy and paste this into an email and send to Richie@wgna.com, or just put the answers in the comment section! The song will air on Thursday's Sean and Richie Show, typically between 8:45-8:50am. It will also be on this website on one of my blogs. And if you have photos to go with your facts, by all means send them to the same email. Would you like to hear examples of songs done in the past? Click the button below. Thanks in advance!
