SERVICE BROADCASTING Urban KKDA (K104)/DALLAS has launched “Hip Hop 4 Hunger.” The BUCK WILDE MORNING SHOW is going to help heal the hunger gap in the DALLAS-Ft. WORTH Metroplex. They’re heading a food drive and will broadcast live this FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19th from 6-10a at BUTTONS RESTAURANT in ADDISON, TX.
After just two weeks the donations have been so strong that over 10,000 cans of food have been collected. They will be used to build a pair of seven-foot-tall ADIDAS tennis shoes on the day of the broadcast, symbolizing hip-hop’s commitment to help stomp out hunger.
“We heard that local food pantries were running really low this year and we knew that we could bring people together,” said BUCKE WILDE. “So we decided to do some good in the hood and make a difference.”
Listeners who stop by the restaurant and drop off can goods will receive a free breakfast and have a chance to win concert tickets and take pictures with the DALLAS MAVERICK dancers and the MAV’s Man. Five local charities will share in the benefits from K104’s “Hip Hop For Hunger Food Drive.”
