Down at the Barbershop Debuts

My good friend and former television partner on “Big Talk”, Jack Murphy, has a new show on his WLSC AM 1240 radio station airing today called Down at the Barbershop.

Murphy has been a fixture in Horry County as a prime time DJ, host on River Talk and many other radio and television productions through many years.

I think this show is going to be a lot of fun.

Below is the press release for the show.

“How can this be a joke?  When you come see us, we’re gonna give you an RC Cola and a Moon Pie.  It’s southern hospitality at its best.”, says Banana Jack Murphy, emcee for the broadcast.  He adds, “We’re even going to have the Loris Chamber of Commerce here for an official ribbon cutting.  To be honest, I think they’re coming for the Moon Pies.  It’s just gonna be big small town fun.”

Local musician, Big Bam Boom is scheduled to perform live music for the inaugural broadcast.  There will be lots of laughs with Jason Porter, the friendly owner of Loris Barber Shop and a local character knows as The Ragin’ Cajun will be on hand, too.  So, come on down and get a haircut, play a game or two of checkers and have a good old time with the gang at Loris Barber Shop.
