FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE — April 14, 2017
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. — PHILLY ROCK RADIO announced that the long-running Melodic Rock radio program “FryDay Night with Fry” will debut on the station April 21, 2017, and air Friday nights 8 p.m. – 11 p.m.
“FryDay Night with Fry” is hosted each week by Pete Fry. The weekly 3-hour radio show presents a playlist of melodic rock songs spanning the past 40 years of music. “My sweet spot is melodic hard rock from the glory days of the ’80s through today, but don’t be surprised if I mix in ’70s/’80s hard rock and metal, to sleaze, glam, heavier prog, whatever, to me it’s all fair game,” said Fry.
"We’re really excited to have Pete’s show in our lineup,” said Kevin McElroy, station owner. It offers a mix of music that is distinct from the rest of our programs and adds a whole new flavor of hard rock and metal to our rotation. We look forward to having him introduce our audience to music and bands they haven’t heard on the station yet, anywhere for that matter, as well as dig up tunes they haven’t heard in years. Philly Rock Radio listeners will appreciate Pete’s passion and knowledge about the music he presents.”
Aside from hosting the radio program, Fry is probably better known as a musician in and out of the Philly area. He is the founder and lead guitarist for the band FarCry who tour playing Melodic Rock festivals throughout the U.S. and U.K. The band is currently working on their third studio album.
Pete first launched “FryDay Night with Fry” in November of 2012 on UK-based ARfm (www.arfm.co.uk) at the encouragement of Program Director Steve Price during Firefest in Nottingham, UK. Pete’s band FarCry was performing at the festival. A diehard rock fan, as well as musician, Pete thought he had something unique to offer listeners. Since its first broadcast, the show has gained an impressive and loyal world-wide following among melodic rock fans.
In his spare time, you can find Pete at the TapRoom on 19th, a craft beer bar he co-owns with his long-time friend, Michael Strauss in South Philadelphia (www.taproomon19th.com).
Tune in: “FryDay Night With Fry” can be heard Friday nights, 8 p.m – 11 p.m., starting April 21 on PhillyRockRadio.com, the station’s free mobile app and via the TuneIn mobile app. For all station information, visit phillyrockradio.com
