GCHS Alumni in the News: DJ MIke Bowe and the Martini Lounge out and about in Manayunk
Wednesday, March 26, 2008
People came as far as Fairmount for the Party For Peace. It is very encouraging for a 6-month-old fledgling radio station. Martini Lounge brought back the Pop Standards the Philadelphia radio landscape had been lacking.
"This station is a godsend," said Mike Bowe, host of Martini Lounge's Happy Hour. "It's not just for older people. Young people have been listening. The music is nothing like what's out there. There is something different about this music."
Both Craig and Bowe have been part of the Philly radio scene for more than 30 years. Both were last heard on WPEN 950 AM until that station changed formats a few years ago.
"I feel a little like David taking on Goliath," said Bowe. "But it's a fun time. I like coming to work in Manayunk."
Martini Lounge, locally owned, operates just off Cresson St. in Manayunk. The station's reputation is growing. read more
