WASHINGTON - We always love Fridays, but this one was different! It was the start of the FOX 5 Spring Concert Series, sponsored by Easterns Automotive Group, in Farragut Square Park -- and with your help -- our crew rocked out!
Starting with this morning's concert from Sound of the City , and lasting for the next several weeks - we'll have awesome local bands live on Friday's on Good Day DC. Today was extra special because, not only did Sound of the City join FOX 5's Holly Morris and Maureen Umeh for live, morning-long music - they also debuted their NEW single, Run, on Good Day DC!
