107.5 Frank FM’s Pay 4 Play benefitting The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is as simple as it sounds: You Pay, Frank Plays. Morning show hosts, Stan, Heidi, and Rick are committing 28 consecutive hours of air time to ensuring that you hear that song that you want as long as you’re willing to pay the price! The farther your song request is from Frank’s traditional classic rock format, the more you pay to hear it. 100% of the funds raised during this event will stay local to support sick and injured kids at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. Requesting your favorite song will never feel better!
