In addition to hourly remembrances, “WMMR’s 25 Years in 25 Days” includes 2 concert events.

They perform at the Theater of Living Arts on South Street. A WMMR Concert Event with international rock stars The Who occurs at the Wachovia Center on the final night of the 25 day celebration, Friday November 25th.
Whether from his studio at WMMR, on the streets, in the clubs, or reporting from the biggest rock and roll events from around the world, Pierre Robert has always broadcast with kindness and conscience. He's aided countless charities, shaken thousands of hands, and shared a million smiles. Pierre Robert has never lost sight of just how good it feels to be moved by the power of music.
“The scope of WMMR’s current ratings, place it as the 2nd most listened to rock station in America. The radio station is regarded as a Philadelphia institution due in large part to the contributions of Pierre Robert. I know of no other radio talent so dedicated to his listeners, his radio home, and the city he serves. Pierre is a treasure- for WMMR and for Philadelphia.” – Bill Weston Program Director WMMR-FM.
