Beasley Media Group’s WCSX-FM (Detroit), in support of a petition to have Bob Seger Boulevard approved by the Ann Arbor Michigan School Board, programmed 24 hours of Bob Seger music this past Saturday, June 2.
WCSX-FM’s Big Jim’s House Morning Show challenged WCSX-FM Program Director Jerry Tarrants that they could get more than 9,470 likes on the brand new “Make Bob Seger Boulevard” Facebook page. Within only a few days, Bob Seger fans from all over the world made their voices known with likes for the page going well over the 9,470 likes needed! As a result, listeners were able to enjoy 24 hours of Seger on the station.
“I should have known that Bob Seger fans would rise to the occasion,” said Program Director Jerry Tarrants. “It will be fun. The incredible response will help to support our efforts in naming a street sign after this Rock legend. It is something that everyone in the Detroit area and around the world wants to see happen!”
The effort was started in early May when the station announced that it, the City of Ann Arbor and the Ann Arbor School Board were teaming up to have a street named in honor of Detroit Classic Rock legend Bob Seger in front of his Alma Mater in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
