Chef Tim Groody to Help WDAV Throw A Biscuit Party on Sunday, March 21st
POSTED March 19, 2010 — March 21 is an important date. Three hundred twenty-five years ago, Johann Sebastian Bach was born on that date. One year ago, WDAV”s Sunday morning show, Biscuits & Bach was born. And on March 21, 2010, WDAV will celebrate both anniversaries by hosting a Biscuit Party during its Spring 2010 On-Air Membership Campaign. Listeners are invited to drop by the station this Sunday from 8 to11 a.m., enjoy a free fresh-baked biscuit, listen to live Bach performances and watch station staff and volunteers as they conduct the campaign.
