The Andie Summers Show

Weekdays 5:30AM-10AM

You may have heard a new voice on The Andie Summers Show over the past few weeks… His name is Jeff Kurkjian.  He is brand new to Philly having previously lived in Las Vegas for a number of years.

The rest of The Andie Summers Show came up with an idea to have Jeff familiarize himself with the city of Philadelphia in a really cool well.  We know Philly people especially Philly sports fans are passionate about their sports teams (Go Birds!) and their city and we went our good buddy Jeff to fit in…

We came up with “The Philly Card…” where XTU Nation chimes in and tells Jeff the best spots to hit in the Delaware Valley.  It can be landmarks, beaches, cheese steak spots, bars, venues, tailgates, a store, a certain view.

Once Jeff completes all of the items on board, he receives his “Philly Card!”

Let us know what you think Jeff should do next below:

  • 1} Visit The Liberty Bell

  • 6) Get Stuck In Rush Hour Traffic

    My first experiment with traffic was actually with our very own Donnie so at least I was totally entertained.

  • 7) Eat A TastyKake!

    I believe I’ve had one before but NEVER as a Philadelphia resident so I had to take another run at it! Here I am purchasing, so pumped.

    After 2 out of the 3, I got a little full and put the final one in the fridge to enjoyed later!
