Banana Jack Murphy Celebrates 25th Bananaversary

New Talk Show to Air Weekdays at 3:00 PM

(Loris,SC)  If you were listening to the radio during the 90s and the early years of this century, then chances are you heard The Banana Jack Murphy Show. The popular morning radio program debuted on April 24, 1989 on was heard weekdays, 6-10 am, on 101.7 FM. Banana Jack Murphy handled morning drive on that rock radio frequency until 2001, when he was chosen to replace Howard Stern on 104.1 FM, another rock station along the Grand Strand. Murphy continued to host his popular morning radio show on 104.1 FM until April 18, 2007.

In the fall of 2007, Murphy and his wife, Barb Krumm formed their own broadcast company and purchased WLSC 1240 AM in Loris. Since that time, Murphy has spent more time in management than on the air, but he never put away his headphones. "I have radio in my DNA, so I've still hosted at least one program per week.", says Murphy. WLSC also known as Tiger Radio recently flipped from an oldies format to talk. This change in direction for the station opened the doors for Murphy to recreate a talk radio version of his once popular morning radio show.

Starting April 1st (April Fools Day), listeners can tune in at 3:00 pm every weekday to hear Murphy and his cast of crazy characters including Harold Dean of Loris, Mr. Know-It-All, Rev. I.B. Wright, Claude & Earl and Leon Frazier, The World's Worst Elvis Impersonator.

Murphy's new show will also bring back fun features of his old program such as The Murphy Report, Uncle Banana's Animal Tales, The Crime Fighter's Notebook and a ton of song parodies. Murphy adds, "I recorded a bunch of wacky songs through the years like Marion Woman and My Last Pop Tart. I can't wait to get back in the studio and record some new stuff. I think folks are really gonna dig it. It's time to go bananas again!"
