Sunday mornings from 9:30 to 10, listeners in Spartanburg and around the world will get to know Sherman College and learn more about chiropractic and its vital and expanding role in health care today.
College faculty, staff and students will serve as weekly guests on the “Awake with Drake” show, which airs on 910 AM and 105.7 FM (out-of-towners can listen online). During these shows, listeners will hear:
Radio personality Bill Drake is known in the community as the “Voice of Spartanburg,” but around Sherman College he’s known as a chiropractic advocate and friend who has volunteered his time to guest lecture to Sherman students in communications classes. Bill Drake’s involvement with the college stretches back to the late 1970s when he served as emcee at Lyceum.
Drake became a chiropractic patient in 1987 and is an avid reader of books on the philosophy of chiropractic. Sherman College named him Lay Person of the Year Award in 1991, and he has been named South Carolina Radio Personality of the Year in 1986, 1987 and 1992. Drake often invites guests from the chiropractic community on his radio show. He helps publicize Sherman College news and has served as a commencement speaker and as emcee on various occasions.
Staff, faculty and students are excited to partner with the “Awake with Drake” show to expand the college’s audience and share their passion for the college vision of “Adjusting the World for a Better Future.”
