VIDEO Update – WURD In the Community with ESPM Hair Zone

Written by on August 22, 2014

Our free hair cut co-promotion with ESPM Hair Zone was a definite success — but in addition to giving out hair cuts, we helped inspire a member of our community.

WURD’s cameras were on the scene and captured a great exchange between “Wake Up With WURD” host Phil Allen, ESPM Hair Zone CEO Mike Monroe, and a young man from the neighborhood named Keem who flat-out rejected the idea of voting… until Phil and Mike really broke it down.

We also snapped a few quick pics (more to come!):

    I would like to express my sincere condolences. What a wonderful musician. I was able to see Mr. Blake perform in the 90s while I was in college. Who knew that for $6 I was about to see a performance that should have cost far more. My friends and I were instantly captivated by a jazz musician using a violin. Twenty years later, and unbeknownst to me, I was speaking with Mr. Blake on the school playground where his family member was a classmate of my daughter. I hadn’t remembered that was him and he was so humble that I wouldn’t have known anyway. When I later found out that it was thee John Blake, Jr. I had spoken with, I knew I’d never squander the opportunity again. Finally, I had the opportunity to express my gratitude to Mr. Blake and his sister after their performance of their commissioned, The Good Raised Up. What an awesome musician. I would tell anyone to go purchase John Blake’s Quest. You won’t be disappointed.
