28th Annual Bed & Bread Club Radiothon in Royal Oak

The Salvation Army of Metro Detroit will hold its 28th annual Bed & Bread Club Radiothon on Friday, Feb. 27 on News/Talk 760 WJR at a new venue. The 16-hour Radiothon will be held at Emagine Theatres at 200 N. Main Street in Royal Oak. This fundraiser is the primary source of funding for the nonprofit's Bed & Bread program.

The event will be hosted by WJR's regular line up of Paul W. Smith, Frank Beckmann and Mitch Albom, along with Big Al Muskavito in the mid-afternoon. Bed & Bread Club chairman and retired Detroit radio Hall of Famer Dick Purtan will close out the broadcast beginning at 7 p.m. Throughout the day, WJR's Ken Rogulski will broadcast live from the Bed & Bed trucks. The on-air personalities, along with special guests, will encourage the listening audience to join the "Club That's Here for Good."
