UPDATE: BOSTON MAYORAL Candidates SAM YOON and MICHAEL FLAHERTY went head-to-head TODAY (8/20) at PHOENIX MEDIA GROUP Alternative WFNX/BOSTON on THE SANDBOX morning show feature "MY SONG IS BETTER THAN YOUR SONG" as reported earlier this week (NET NEWS 8/17).
WFNX invites local celebrities or listeners to bring a song they believe is the best every weekly THURSDAY morning at 9a. After both songs are played, the listeners vote and decide who will be "My Song Champion" for the week.
SAM YOON came into the bout as the current champion with six wins under his belt. The challenger, MICHAEL FLAHERTY, brought THE DROPKICK MURPHYS' "I’m Shipping Up to Boston" to the table. That song is almost a guaranteed win for any challenger. However, YOON had also chosen "I’m Shipping Up to Boston" as his song for the week.
This week’s "My Song" became a popularity contest of the candidates. The votes phoned in were split between the two but, it was the online votes that sealed another win for the champion, SAM YOON. The invitation is in for MAYOR MENINO.
