    Description-Police officers are under attack and citizens are fed up. It’s time to let our friends and neighbors know that we support the men and women who put their lives in danger to protect ours. Thursday, March 5, 2009 is “Blue Thursday,” a special day created and promoted by Dom Giordano and The Big Talker 1210, WPHT. Dom is asking listeners from all over the Delaware Valley to show their support for police officers who are increasingly under fire from armed criminals on our streets. Show your support by wearing blue, or decorate your car, home, or place of business with blue ribbons or blue lights, encouraging everyone you know to do the same and show support for police officers throughout the region. The Big Talker 1210 urges you to show additional support for officers by wearing blue, or decorate your car, home, or place of business with blue ribbons or blue lights, encouraging everyone you know to do the same and show support for police officers throughout the region on “Blue Thursday.” The Big Talker 1210’s Dom Giordano will host a special live broadcast from Geno’s Steaks from 6 PM to 12 Midnight on Thursday, March 5th. Dom and an array of special guests will discuss and analyze the reasons for the recent rash of police killings in Philadelphia and ways to reduce gun violence and make our streets safer. “Blue Thursday” coincides with next Joey Vento’s Geno’s Steaks fund raiser for the families of fallen Philadelphia Police Officers. Joey Vento will again donate all dollars generated by sales of his famous cheese steaks from 10 AM on Thursday, March 5th until 6 AM on Friday March 6th. Previous individual Geno’s fund raising efforts have raised more than $50,000. On “Blue Thursday” The Big Talker 1210 will also debut our new Salute-A-Cop promotion where we will begin to regularly recognize officers for individual excellence on the job.
