UTICA/ROME — It would be prohibitively expensive for a radio station to bring hundreds of listeners to Key West, so Arjuna Broadcasting’s 92.7 The Drive (WXUR) brought a little bit of Key West recently to Utica. WXUR’s Jack Moran sent in a photo of the fun for our Picture of the Week.
WXUR’s “Key West Fest” took place at the Hotel Utica last month. Moran tells CNYRadio.com entertainment was provided by “The Boat Drunks, the band that Jimmy Buffet has play at all of his Margaritaville Cafes.” As you can see, it was a full house, batting beach balls under the chandeliers. Moran says the event sold out and more than 150 people had to be turned away.
