  Schwartzbauer Promotes Health Center on Upstate Radio Show

Spartanburg area residents waking up with local radio personality Bill Drake on August 23 heard all about Sherman College, the on-campus chiropractic health center, and chiropractic as a career choice, as Sherman President Jon Schwartzbauer, D.C., and Regent Dick Plummer, D.C., were guests on the daily talk show.

Awake with Drake” airs each morning from 5-9 a.m. on WSPA-AM in Spartanburg. Then, from 9-10 a.m. weekdays, Drake interviews community leaders. The program featuring Sherman College and chiropractic also re-aired on August 25.

For the last 30 years, Drake has reigned as Spartanburg’s most popular radio personality as well as a most persuasive emissary for businesses in the Spartanburg area. In addition, Drake is a chiropractic advocate and Sherman supporter who has volunteered his time for many Sherman events and classroom lectures on communication.

Drake’s involvement with Sherman College stretches back to the late 1970s when he served as emcee at Lyceum. Impressed with the large audience at the event, and by Plummer (who was Lyceum director at the time), Drake invited Plummer as a regular guest on his morning radio show to talk about chiropractic. Drake continues to invite guests from the chiropractic community on his radio show. He also helps publicize Sherman College news and serves as emcee at various college events. Drake became a chiropractic patient in 1987 and is an avid reader of books on the philosophy of chiropractic.
