SUSQUEHANNA Oldies WSOX/YORK, PA APD/morning drive host MICHAEL "MAD DOG" OVADIA checks in with ALL ACCESS to share a touching story about the power of local radio to make a difference in listener lives.
This past FRIDAY (4/28), MAD DOG invited JOEY SMITH, 10, and JUSTIN WARFEL, 11, to the studios to speak on the air about sales of their "Tru Friends" bracelets, which the boys were selling to help raise money to purchase a grave marker for their pal TRU RAY BARTON, who died in a house fire in FEBRUARY. The boys had sold a number of bracelets already, but OVADIA surprised them with a special visitor, BEVERLY BAUGHMAN, whose family owns a memorial company. BAUGHMAN agreed to donate the marker so that the boys could take the money that they had raised and either purchase a tree or bench for the graveside, or to donate to fire-prevention education.
