WMPG DJ Jackie Nice was recently interviewed and had a video profile done on her by Randy Visser and Standing Oak Media. It is a wonderful feature that shows Jackie at home talking about her life and how she ended up at WMPG bringing us her weekly Eastern Sands program heard every Sunday from 3:30-5pm. Thanks Randy and great job!
Wow – what a day! The turnout was huge this year for our 21st annual WMPG Cajun Cookin’ Challenge. More than 500 people attended the event and when all the votes were counted we had a winner! Congrats to Gritty McDuff’s as they took the honors and bragging rights this year. They served up a wonderful Catfish and Sausage Gumbo that impressed the voters.
