Bobbi Silver's TLA Soiree
November 15, 2011 at 7:16 AM (PT)
Hundreds of people turned out last night to honor promotion legend BOBBI SILVER, at a retirement party in her honor at the TLA on SOUTH ST. in PHILADELPHIA.
The PHILLY-based INTERSCOPE promo rep recently announced her retirement after 42 years in the business, and the party was planned in her honor by LIVE NATION's MICHAEL LESSNER - who got his start in the business working for BOBBI -- and INTERSCOPE Co-President BRENDA ROMANO and SVP/Promotion CHRIS LOPES.
GREATER MEDIA Rock WMMR/PHILADELPHIA midday legend PIERRE ROBERT served as the MC, while speakers included CLEAR CHANNEL's BRIAN CHECK, TIM HERBSTER and JOE MCCULLOM, who presented BOBBI with a special composition book (her trademark), and LESSNER, who honored BOBBI with a LIVE NATION gold ticket, which give her admittance to every LIVE NATION concert for the rest of her life! BOBBI was also presented with an iPOD containing every song she had ever promoted during her career.
Other speakers included ROADRUNNER SVP/Pop Promo JOHN BOULOS, and WMMR PD BILL WESTON, who assembled an amazing slideshow chronicling BOBBI's amazing career.
