Check Out G-town Radio New Shows Living With Pets & Big Questions

Living with Pets is a show for people who share their lives with animals or just want to learn more about them. We explore the behavior of our pets and some of the latest research on how animals think and feel. Learn why our pets do what they do and how to influence their behavior to better fit in with their human family. We explore the ways that our pets perceive the world differently than we do as well as how they are much the same. Learn how you can enrich their lives in ways to build a stronger relationship with them. You can teach them new behaviors to make your life together work better or just for fun and games.

You can be part of the show by asking questions about your pet’s behavior or contact us just to brag about what your pet can do by calling or texting 267-591-9115, emailing LivingWithPets92.9@gmail.com or posting on the Living with Pets Facebook group page and they will be answered on the air.

G-town in the Neighborhood

G-town Radio was out and about this weekend!

Saturday morning, we joined PA House Representative Stephen Kinsey’s office, along with four other neighborhood groups including We Are Talking Trash Inc., We Are Smart 2, Helping Special Friends Inc., and Men Who Care of Germantown, in a community beautification project. Folks joined together at the underpass of 5799 Magnolia Street, where heaps of trash are illegally dumped regularly.

G-town Radio was playing music and sharing information at The Philadelphia Honey Festival at Wyck Historic House and Garden on Germantown Avenue.

We can’t wait to see you in Northwest Philly soon!
