WOBC has much love for WPEB-West Philly Community Radio

Pictured: Jasper, Leo, Jesse, Francesca, Sam, Renee, and Champe.

On January 23rd, WOBC visited WPEB 88.1, West Philadelphia’s new community radio station.

Stories were swapped, tips were given, and a kinship was formed between these two independent stations.

Please check out their website: WPEB 88.1 FM

Big thanks to Corey for setting the whole thing up.

If you’re ever in West Philly, try to drop by WPEB!
