SYRACUSE — Earlier this month, acclaimed singer and songwriter Benny Mardones tweeted that he had plans to visit Syracuse. And last week, he made good on that promise, stopping by a few radio stations for live interviews. Galaxy classic rocker TK99 (WTKW) was on the itinerary, and the singer posed for a photo with the “Gomez and Dave” morning show.
From left, TK99 morning co-host Glenn “Gomez” Adams, Galaxy’s Mimi Griswold, co-host Dave Coombs, Mardones, his manager Joe Dmaio, and TK99 morning co-host Lisa Chelenza. Listeners in Utica also got a chance to hear from Mardones, as “Gomez and Dave” are simulcast on 96.9 WOUR.
Mardones was running the local radio circuit to promote “The Benny Mardones & The Hurricanes Christmas Show,” which took place last weekend at Turning Stone.
Our thanks to Dave Coombs for tweeting this photo our way last week.
