WMMR has announced the full-time status of Jacky Bam Bam, the veteran DJ and inveterate Mummer, for overnights at 93.3, effective the week of May 18. He'll work weeknights (midnight to 5:30 a.m.) and two weekend shifts, probably Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.
He replaces Randy Kotz, who was let go in February.
Bam Bam, who joined WMMR in November 2007 for fill-in/weekend work, has the distinction of being the last DJ heard on WYSP from its old studios at Fifth and Market Streets in March 2007.
WMMR program director Bill Weston says he got 105 applicants for the slot.
