PRESIDENT OBAMA made a stop in FT MYERS, FL to pitch his stimulus package and see what the rest of AMERICA is calling the "FORECLOSURE CAPITAL OF THE COUNTRY." So CHRIS CROWLEY PD/afternoons at MERIDIEAN Classic Rocker WARO/FT MYERS, FL decided it was a good time to "change" the calls and slogan of the station to "WHFC, HOME FORECLOSURE CAPITAL CLASSIC ROCK 94-CLOSURE-5" and changed the website to reflect the stunt www.classicrock945.com
When asked about his reason, between dodging rocks being thrown from irate listeners who have already lost their homes CROWLEY said, "With OBAMA in town, I thought it was the perfect time to institute some needed changes and try to bring to light how bad the economy in SOUTHWEST FLORIDA is ... and if I can have fun while doing it, why not?"
