St. Jude's Radio-a-thon underway

April 10, 2008

Albany -- Thursday and Friday Country music radio stations across the nation are helping to fight children's diseases, by raising money for the St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

Albany's K-Country 104 will dedicate 12 hours of their broadcasting days April 10th and 11th to the annual St. Jude Radio-a-thon.

 Dotty Davis and the other station announcers have toured the hospital. Davis has been involved with St. Jude's for 20 years, and believes strongly in it's work to cure childhood cancer and catastrophic diseases. Davis said "there is no cost to the patient. No cost to the family. And the real focus is curing the child. And the great benefit of that is the research that you obtain at the same time."

K-Country has been broadcasting the St. Jude Radio-a-thon for more than 20 years. To donate, you can call 888-271 4673, or stop at their radio studios at the corner of West Broad Avenue and Slappey Boulevard. 

 The radio station will have food and give-aways to raise money to help find cures for childhood diseases.
