In the year 1980-something, CBS Philadelphia reported on a young DJ who was rallying the community to impress the folks scouting locations for RnR Hall of Fame.

We all know how the story ends, but we can be certain that 30 years later the heart of rock n roll is still beating in the City of Brotherly Love.
