Remember When


Remember When is a big, fluffy comfort zone. Like resting your head on a squishy down pillow. A welcome oasis from the world of stress; a rest stop along life’s super highway. Well, you get the idea…. Each Saturday night – from 11pm-1am – your hosts Steve Ross, Jimmy Murray along with your neighborhood correspondent, Jackie Strauss, invite you to kick back, relax and gaze into life’s rear view mirror and admire the reflection – as Remember When takes flight! Remember When is unique – and uniquely Philly! It’s live and local and unlike other talk shows, Remember When has no edge, nor confrontation – just smiles! That’s the way we like it. And we think you will, too!
