“Bada-Bing” Christmas Record A Jersey Hit Thanks To Big Jay

The Godfather Of JRZ

The¬†NEWARK STAR-LEDGER’s CLAUDIA PERRY¬†reports that SORENSEN gave BOB HARRIS and LUCY CLARK’s “JERSEY ‘BADA-BING’ CHRISTMAS” CD some airplay on his morning show with ANITA BONITA and SUNDAY morning talk show, and the song took off.
