'Pittsburgh Poetess' Rachel Ann Bovier's poem in celebration WYEP's 50th anniversary

A framed poem.

"Pittsburgh Poetess" Rachel Ann Bovier penned a piece in celebration of WYEP's 50th anniversary.

Pittsburgh's own Rachel Ann Bovier stopped by the WYEP studios to record her poem about the station's 50th anniversary.


50 years going
And still standing tall
The number one station
That gives you it all

Songs from the present
Songs from the past
Songs from the future
And songs that'll last

And to make it all happen
And to make it all so
The very best DJ's
That you'll ever know

They're loved by the city
Revered by all
Even by George
John Ringo and Paul

So with sugar on top
And strawberries galore
Congrats on your "50th"
And so many more

— Rachel Ann Bovier
