September 9-10, 2021

Requesting your favorite song will never feel better! The 6th annual Pay 4 Play benefiting The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital is as simple as it sounds: you pay, your song will play- on Frank or The Wolf! Beginning at 6:00AM on Thursday, September 9th and ending at noon on Friday, September 10th, 107.5 FRANK FM and 99.9 The Wolf radio hosts are committing 20 hours of air time to ensure that you hear your favorite song - as long as you’re willing to pay the price! The farther your song request is from the stations' normal format, the more you’ll be asked to pay- or donate to BBCH- in order to hear it. 100% of the funds raised by song requests during Pay 4 Play will stay local to support sick and injured kids cared for at The Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
