SALEM's MIKE GALLAGHER is heading to PHILADELPHIA to do his show from GENO'S STEAKS, the center of a controversy over owner JOEY VENTO's posting of a sign reading "This is AMERICA... when ordering SPEAK ENGLISH." GALLAGHER will do WEDNESDAY's shows- his local KSKY-A/DALLAS show 6-9a CT, and his SALEM syndicated show 9a-Noon ET) from the popular SOUTH PHILLY landmark.
VENTO appeared on GALLAGHER's show TUESDAY and also appeared on CBS RADIO's OPIE AND ANTHONY show to defend his right to post the sign, which has prompted a discrimination complaint from the PHILADELPHIA city Commission on Human Rights. GALLAGHER airs in PHILLY on SALEM's WNTP-A.
