G-town Radio would like to extend our sincerest thanks to the fine people of ASIAC. We were the recipients of a lot of great office furniture in the wake of their move to a new office. ASIAC is a non-profit 501(c)3 community based organization dedicated to providing culturally sensitive and language appropriate HIV and other related services to Asians & Pacific Islanders (APIs) and their partners, family members, friends and service providers in the Philadelphia area. 

The bottoms of our programmers and their guests also offer their thanks.

G-town Radio ambitiously programmed six hours of remote broadcasting from two different locations as we covered the Revolutionary Germantown Festival this past Saturday. From noon to 3 PM G-town Radio programmers Ed Feldman (Morning Feed), Len 'Cruze' Webb (Black Tribbles), T & Z (Queer 2 the T) were live at the Battle of Germantown at Cliveden. We captured the sounds of battle, talked to visitors and got exclusive interviews with Gen. Washington and other battle participants.

We closed out the day down the road at the historic Grumblethorpe House for an American Oktoberfest. Dr. Ranztron of Soul Junction kept the party funky while families enjoyed the gardens, food and beer (well, 21+ kids). See more pictures of the day's events below.
