The annual WBKR/Window World St. Jude Radiothon gets underway Thursday and we're excited to invite you along for a momentous 26-hour broadcast event. Over two days, Thursday, February 3rd and Friday, February 4th, we hope to rally and inspire the community with incredible and moving stories from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.

Like we do each year, we again ask YOU to join us in the fight against childhood cancer and become a St. Jude Partner in Hope.

This is why your support is so vitally important.

To become a St. Jude Partner in Hope during our radiothon is convenient and easy. All you have to do is call 1-800-201-8883.

By becoming a St. Jude Partner in Hope, you basically pledge just $19 a month for 12 months on a debit or credit card.

And, this year, St. Jude continues their recent tradition of outfitting all St. Jude Partners in a brand new t-shirt.  This is the 5th consecutive year of new t-shirts and the 2022 edition is pure perfection in the fact that it combines the power of music with the knowledge that country music fans are dedicated to the St. Jude mission. That mission?  To eliminate childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

This year's shirt is the LOVE MUSIC STOP CANCER t-shirt.

Country Stars Wear "Love Music Stop Cancer" Shirts for St. Jude

The WBKR/Window World St. Jude Radiothon is February 3rd and 4th and we're encouraging YOU to become a St. Jude Partner in Hope for just $19 per month. If you do, you'll receive the brand new Love Music Stop Cancer t-shirt. Here's a look at some of your favorite country stars wearing the shirt to show their support for the patients at St. Jude.

And, don't forget, there's an additional way you can support WBKR's efforts to raise money for St. Jude.  Jerry Morris and the Angels for Ashley Cooking Team are again having a huge cookout at Wesleyan Park Plaza here in the heart of Owensboro (right in front of Shoe Stop).

Here's this year's menu:

Whole Boston butt- $35

Full rack of ribs- $25

Whole chickens- $12

Drive-thru service will open daily from 9am until 6pm (or until supplies are gone) at Shoe Stop at Wesleyan Park Plaza and Norman McDonald's in Philpot (Thursday only). **PLEASE NOTE: This is subject to change based on developing weather conditions with the Ice Storm Warning currently in effect in the tristate.**
