Wake Up With WURD, hosted by Christopher “Flood the Drummer” Norris Audit gun owners quarterly and create a registry. “You have to renew your firearms license. When it’s time for it be renewed, you should have to prove you actually are in possession of the guns.”  – Terrez McCleary, Co-Founder of Moms Bonded by Grief […]

Together, our voices our stronger, and we are raising them to protest the relentless, sanctioned assaults on our brothers and sisters throughout the Disapora.  #PhillyDIEin took place on December 3 (2014) at 4:15 p.m. inside Philadelphia’s 30th Street Amtrak Station, followed by a protest march to City Hall.

900AM-WURD is committed to ongoing coverage of the August 9 fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed teenager, in Ferguson, MO. It was announced on November 24 that the St. Louis County grand jury convened to determine whether to indict police officer Darren Wilson has not brought criminal charges against him.

Great news, WURD family! Philadelphia Daily News columnist Jenice Armstrong, creator of the “Sexy Singles” contest, joins “Wake Up With WURD” every Monday for a weekly look at news, pop culture, and the world through the eyes of a woman who’s seen it all.

Join 900AM-WURD this Saturday, October 4, to help clean up the legendary 16th and Susquehanna basketball courts! This community clean up day runs from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and the first 10 volunteers will receive a free 16th and Philly t-shirt!

In a community where poverty and affluence are locked in an uncomfortable embrace, properties that once sold for less than $5,000 have been sold for nearly $2 million. And as the complexion of the community changes, along with the name—Templetown—the courts stand as a reminder of the way things used to be, when 16th and Susquehanna was not only the center of the basketball world. It was the center of a community.
