For the last 70 years, WDAS has been a staple in the African American community. Throughout those years, the talent that worked at the station was almost, if not as great as the musical talent that came through the doors. Names like Georgie Woods, Ed Bradley, Harvey Holiday and Joe "Butterball" Tamburro are part of Philadelphia Radio history.
