From my local radio station here in Tampa, Florida...

Get Garth to Florida!

Sign our petition.

If you heard the story, Garth Brooks is going to do a concert in California in January for the victims of the wildfires and to raise money for wildfire prevention. So, we thought we'd petition him just like folks in Cali did to get him to come to Tampa and raise money for hurricane-related issues that we KNOW we'll have. Once we have 5,000 names on our petition, we'll submit our letter to Governor Charlie Crist and get him to help us get Garth to Tampa. It's a win-win across the board. To submit your name(s), email them to Melissa @ melissa@us1035.com. We thank you in advance! Help us help you!
Please send an email to the email address above!! Post here if you helped us out!

I'm sure lots of you would love another road trip to see Garth in concert. :)
We have over 5,000 names but not the station says they want 10,000!

Skip Mahaffey used to be in Columbus at WCOL; when Garth played Cooper Stadium he was so excited he could barely interview him on the air!

When Skip first came to Tampa.. his debut was the night Garth played 4 nights in Tampa in 1998. He was a blubbering fool then too.. He LOVES Garth.

Hey, I was there on that Wednesday night show in 1998! I was like the first "fan" there (at around 1pm) and hung out infront of thier wagon. They were on 99.5 then and I kept begging for It's your song, cuz it had just came out!!!

I added my whole families names to the list...LOL!!!

LOL, Monica, he couldn't even get the questions out. Garth actually reached over and took the paper from him, read off the question, imitiating Skip, answered it and them went on to the next question! And he was giggling the entire time he was reading the questions. It was so cute.

A ten hour road trip as compared to flying to KC and LA, that sounds awesome.
