Every year for the last 22 years, WAAF has dedicated three days of radio air time to fund raise for The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB), the Worcester County Food Bank and the New Hampshire Food Bank. During those three days, the radio station and GBFB volunteers man the phones and take song requests in exchange for donations. Listeners can “pay to play,” with song requests starting at $50. More obscure songs go for several hundred dollars. Listeners are also encouraged to Text ‘WAAF’ to 20222 to donate $10 or visit GBFB.org/waaf to make an online donation. This year, former radio personalities LB and Spaz dropped by the studio to generate some excitement and challenge the WAAF listeners. Greg Hill of The Hill-Man Morning Show, Mike Hsu and Mistress Carrie were on air throughout the event to haggle their listeners into joining in on the fun for a good cause. The event began at 6am on Wednesday, December 17, and ended Friday, December 19 at 7pm. This year’s event raised $67,677 dollars, enough to provide 203,301 meals to those in need!
