WAJI Puts American Idol Contestant Back On The Road

SARKES TARZIAN INC. Hot AC WAJI (MAJIC 95.1)/FT. WAYNE, IN's morning show with DIRK & JEANNETTE recently interviewed AMERICAN IDOL contestant JOSIAH LEMMING after he won their hearts with his story.
LEMMING was living in his car and trying to make a dream come true by using his talents to help support his mother, who is battling cancer. When LEMMING was eliminated from the competition, DIRK & JEANNETTE learned that his car had broken down and was sitting in his mother's driveway in TENNESSEE. The morning show made a call to MARK MCKIBBON of GLENBROOK HYUNDAI, who was so touched with the story that he arranged for the dealer to donate a car to LEMMING -- as long as he could get to FT. WAYNE to pick it up.
WAJI then arranged airfare for the singer to pick up the car, and invited him to perform an exclusive acoustic show for 200 listeners at the local SWEETWATER SOUNDSTAGE on THURSDAY (2/28).
