Dave FM this week held its annual three-day Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta radio-thon a little earlier this year. Why? The rock station is disappearing from the airwaves, soon to be replaced by sports talk.
So I stopped by Children’s Healthcare at Scottish Rite Friday to say goodbye in effect to the radio station. It’s a little sad for me since I was demographically very much the typical listener.
This year’s radio-thon was different in many ways. They held it last year at the Voice studio at Children’s Healthcare at Egleston. This year, they moved it to the cafeteria at Children’s Healthcare at Scottish Rite because it’s more accessible to the families and provides that “noisy background” that indicates action and excitement during a radio-thon. Another difference: the program director Scott Jameson was let go a few months ago so he’s no longer hovering like a mother hen.
