WMMR’s 50th Birthday

Planet M was a specialty show on WMMR that was hosted by Matt Cord. It started on Saturday nights, but eventually became a part of the evening show every weeknight. This was the first commercial radio show in Philly to play a long list of alternative acts like Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Green Day. It was on the air from about 1990-95. Sometime in 1992, Barenaked Ladies stopped by for a fun performance at MMR’s studios, then located at 5th and Market, and one of the songs they treated us to was “If I Had A Million Dollars”.
