WSTW is proud to present
Hometown Heroes, a weekly program spotlighting the best music
from the Delaware Valley! Hosted by Mark Rogers, Hometown Heroes
is broadcast every Sunday, 8-10pm. We play the music and
provide information about where you can see these bands perform live,
how to get their music, and how to contact them. We'll even bring some
of them into the studio to perform live on the air.
