“The Tom Joyner Morning Show” broadcasted from the Fly Jock’s original home in Chicago yesterday. Tom Joyner, Sybil Wilkes and Jay Anthony Brown were in the building last night for Tom Joyner’s Happy Hour sponsored by WSRB 106.3 at the Homewood Suites. It was a festive atmosphere and fans snapped pictures and selfies with their favorite radio host. “Chicago’s Tightest Female DJ,” Sundance, the first female DJ on all-urban radio in Chicago, had the party going, playing everything from R&B to steppers’ music.
Rolling out was able to catch up with the newest addition to the 106.3 team, Tony Sculfield. We asked Tony about the event and how it feels to be back on the airwaves. “Well, they had the brunch this morning and this is kind of the wrap-up,” he said. “This event is for those fans who don’t have an opportunity to see Tom and team to actually come out and take some pictures and have a good time with them, and if you can’t take a picture with Tom, I’m his stunt double. I’m a little skinnier, a little taller, but we look just alike. We are bald and light-skinned. I have been called Tom Joyner in the past. I want to thank Crawford Broadcasting for having me come over and be part of the family, It’s awesome doing radio for the best listeners on the planet. Chicago has the best and most educated radio listeners and it’s good to be speaking to them again.”
Joyner took a moment to thank the fans for coming out and having such a good time with the team, and then it was back to the party.
