PILLAR OF FIRE Christian AC WAWZ (STAR 99.1)/NEW YORK placed 2,974 pairs of empty shoes with an AMERICAN flag in a field across from the station in tribute to all those lost on SEPTEMBER 11TH, 2006.
For six weeks, JOHNNY STONE IN THE MORNING collected shoes that listeners would no longer use. These include pairs that belonged to people that died on that day and firemen boots to represent the first responders who perished.
“It was amazing to see how personal the shoes became. On the morning of 9/11, people would search out a pair that looked like their lost loved ones would wear and attached a note to that flag,” said PD/morning host JOHNNY STONE.
