EntercomWe understand it’s cold right now in Massachusetts. Nonetheless, Entercom Boston Rocker WAAF on-air personalities Lyndon “LB” Byers and Anthony “Spaz” Parziale are officially up in the air for the next three days as part of the annual “WAAF Rise Up Against Hunger” fundraising campaign to benefit the Greater Boston, New Hampshire, and Worcester County Food Banks.

LB is suspended on a platform on a lift 60 feet in the air above the Greater Boston Food Bank in Boston from 6 am Wednesday, December 11 through 7 pm Friday, December 13. Spaz is doing the same, living six stories above The British Beer Company on Route 9 in Framingham for 60 hours.
