Jim Bear Talks G-Town Radio

jim bear smile Q: WHAT’S G-TOWN RADIO?  A: G-Town Radio is a 24 hour Internet Radio Station that’s going to be serving local content, community news and great music you don’t find anywhere on the FM dial.

Earl Smith Thinks SEPTA is Great But Wants Newer Cars

Q: HOW WOULD YOU LIKE SEPTA TO BE ANY DIFFERENT THAN THE WAY IT IS?  A: I would like to see them improve on the trains, have  newer trains because some of these trains are old and break down. People have to get off and walk and that’s not right to a rider. And I believe they should have the conductors tell the people to put their stuff on the top rack so people can sit down. If a train is crowded, everybody can have a seat…Otherwise SEPTA is great! Earl Smith, SEPTA R7 Mount Airy Train Station.Earle_smith_waiting_for_septa_at_tr

"My name us Desiree Jacques and I designed a Jacques e’ Bouquet floral basket arrangement business.  I search all around with the help of my mother, Gladys, and I look for the most unique and quaint and elegant basket containers that I can find. I go everywhere. Some of my baskets are baskets, some are made out of brass, some are made out of boxes, some are made out of trees. I have an actual pine tree." Desiree Jacques, "Jacques e' Bouquet Floral Baskets", Germantown Avenue and Mermaid Lane.
