Funky Friday with David Dye

Listeners around the country, call the funk-a-phone at 215-573-WXPN or drop us a line by clicking on the Make a Request Button on our website to get in on the action.

Tune in and hear anything funky from the 50's to brand new funk, as long as it'll make your butt move, but the center of the show is the funk decade of the 1970's. You can expect to hear something from the Mt. Rushmore of funkiness on every show
