Last Saturday, BBQ Guru teamed up with 94 WYSP and had a barbeque for the ages in one lucky Philadelphia area listener’s backyard. The rules of the Backyard BBQ were simple: send in photos of your backyard along with an explanation of why WYSP and BBQ Guru should come to your house. While there were many deserving applicants, none stuck out quite like Jenifer Klepesky. Not only is she a mother of seven, but her husband is one of Philadelphia’s finest – Officer Jim Klepesky.
So from 10 am – 3 pm on Saturday, WYSP and BBQ Guru took over the Klepesky backyard, broadcasting live and barbequing up a storm. The WYSP extreme team entertained the army of kids while DJs Jennifer Reed, Spike, and Gordon broadcasted live. The BBQ Guru Competition team served close to 100 pulled pork sandwiches with some peach-infused baked beans. (Cooking at some of the most cutthroat BBQ competitions across that country was nothing compared to preparing food for a Philadelphia police officer’s hungry friends and family.)
The party was a blast. We met some great people, played some Guitar Hero, and got some airtime on WYSP! A special thank you to the Klepesky family for being such gracious hosts. We hope we made your two-year-old daughter Veronica’s birthday one for the ages.
We can’t wait for the next Backyard BBQ, which is scheduled for August 20th. Danny Bonaduce and the morning show crew will be coming this time around –and it could be in your backyard! WYSP will be accepting applications for the next Backyard BBQ within the next week or so – keep an eye on our Facebook and Twitter page for more information!
