Sonfest Who Knew!

Another very jam-packed day on the Afternoon Drive! Ah!
So today, for Who-Knew Wednesday, we did a very timely ‘who-knew’ topic…

Sonfest 2017 is coming up very quickly, and we’re getting so excited!
We heard from our Sonfest coordinator, Bharon Hoag, about everything that’s going to be happening on Saturday, and why he’s so excited for Sonfest 2017.

You can check out our conversation with Bharon here!

Our Who Knew Wednesday question today was, of course, Sonfest related!
The Sonfest headliner this year is Plumb, and we had a little bit harder question today for Who Knew Wednesday, as we give away a $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley! Our Plumb related WKW question was…
When was Plumb born? (MM/DD/YY)
The answer is March 9th, 1975!

Congratulations to Wendy from Mount Vernon for correctly answering our trivia question today!

We were so excited to be able to give away another pair of Sonfest tickets today! Our Sonfest Artist Trivia question today was about Johnny Diaz!
Question: Where is Johnny Diaz originally from? (City and state)
Answer: Lakeland, Florida
Congratulations to Amy from Mount Vernon for calling in and correctly guessing!

We would also like to wish congratulations to our Lion King Junior ticket winner Kristen from Mount Vernon . They will be receiving two tickets to the MTVArts, ArtsIQ production of the Lion King Junior! And if you would like more information about MTVArts and their productions, click here!
