Congratulations to Dori Spector! She's the winner of WRTI's 60th Anniversary Commemorative Artwork Competition. Dori lives in Newtown Square, PA and is a sustaining member of WRTI. She submitted an etching that, our judges felt, was a beautiful expression of WRTI's diverse cultural community and its ongoing connection to Philadelphia's tri-state region.
“All of the submissions received were truly outstanding,” says WRTI General Manager Dave Conant. "We're thankful to everyone who participated in the competition."
Does this image look familiar? This photo was taken at around 8:30 pm on Monday night while one of our members in Blue Bell was listening to jazz on WRTI in the dark by candlelight. A good ol' transistor radio did the trick! A Wes Montgomery tune ("Come Rain or Come Shine") and Zivit's friendly voice, kept her and her family company when the electricity first went off and the wind was howling outside. "It was very comforting for all of us," she said in an email.
Regular readers of this site know that we both support and enjoy a good relationship with WXPN. But the fact is, we have never really mentioned our fondness for one of Philly's other public-ish radio stations, WRTI 90.1FM. Yes, the Temple University-based jazz and classical station that you - yes, probably YOU - totally take for granted.
