A local radio station is sharing its milestone anniversary with the community today when a 1980s pop heartthrob performs in Evans.
WBBQ-FM is celebrating its 65th birthday bash by bringing artist Rick Springfield to Evans Towne Center Park. Local pop-rock group Impulse Ride also is scheduled.
“Celebrating 65 years is a huge, huge deal for us,” said WBBQ promotions coordinator Andrew Harmon. “There’s not many radio stations that can say they are celebrating 65 years.”
Gates will open at 4:30 p.m., with the show starting at 6:30.
