It’s time for a Philly Funky Friday music break by The O’Jays

ojays If you’re in your office or home today in Philly and surrounding areas, and you haven’t looked outside your window or stepped outside, you’re missing a gorgeous, sunny Spring day in Philly. It’s the kind of day that screams Funky Friday, which is on today at 5PM with XPN’s David Dye. So take a moment, poke your head outside, and if you can’t do that then take our little funk break here with this classic from The O’Jays, and make sure you tune in at 5PM today for two hours of the funk with David.
