SYRACUSE -- They're one of the hottest acts in country music right now, and they've even had a few songs crossover to AC radio station playlists. The Band Perry is currently on tour, and plenty of fans from Syracuse made the trip, along with New Country WOLF 105.1, to see the trio play at a farm south of Utica earlier this month.
In the red hat, that's WOLF-FM afternoon host and program director Skip Clark, wedged between siblings Reid Perry and Kimberly Perry, with Neil Perry on the far right. The photo was taken backstage at MKJ Farm in Deansboro. WOLF-FM's John Hunt, who sent the photo, tells us The Band Perry was there for a concert on August 4th.
New Country WOLF 105.1 clearly followed through on its promise to be "the station that will get you closer to the stars," as evidenced in the dozens more photos of the band posing with fans backstage, all posted in a gallery that includes more than 100 photos on the station's website.
Thanks again to John Hunt for sending this photo -- if you're keeping track, our record-breaking streak of reader-submitted photos is now at 8 weeks! We're extremely grateful for all the readers who've helped us reach this point. There's a new Picture of the Week every Friday, and if you want your station to be featured (and help us keep the streak going), all you have to do is send in a photo! It can be something recent, or it can be a "blast from the past" involving local TV or radio in any of the markets we cover. Just send those shots to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If all goes as planned, our annual State Fair "Mega-Picture of the Week" comes your way next Friday, August 31. Your editor will be visiting the fairgrounds at least twice (maybe three times) before then, hoping to get shots of every radio and TV station that will be on-location at the Fair. Of course, your own submissions are also welcome!
Here's a review of 2011 -- if your station wasn't featured, it was only because we couldn't find you. So -- whether we missed you last year, or you've got a different location this year, make sure to let us know where you'll be and we'll make sure we stop by. Or you can even send your own photo of your set-up at the Fair. We'd love to get 100% coverage of every station this year!
