WAAF 107.3 FM’s LB and Spaz “Rise Up Against Hunger”

Published on December 12, 2012

On December 4, 5 and 6, WAAF FM’s on-air personalities LB and Spaz rose up on boom cranes, and camped out in the sky for three days for “Rise Up Against Hunger” to benefit The Greater Boston Food Bank. Greg Hill of The Hill-Man Morning Show was on air around the clock throughout the event to provide live updates. Each December, the DJs devote three days to various physically challenging activities to raise money for hunger relief. This year’s event raised $80,255 dollars, enough to provide 189,401 meals to those in need. The event began at 7am on Tuesday, December 4, and lasted until Thursday, December 6 at 7pm. The DJs tolerated inclement weather, wind, and sleepless nights on their platforms. LB was at Yale Electric in Dorchester and Spaz was up in the sky above the Best Western in Framingham. The radio station broadcasted around the clock, raising funds for local food banks. Callers had to “pay to play”, with song requests starting at $50. More obscure songs went for several hundred dollars. On Wednesday, the Dropkick Murphys came by the radio station studio and played an exclusive in-studio concert. Tickets were sold to lucky fans for $100.
