Shirts for the scene

Gabe Josefowicz, Student Writer

Ever since Alt 92.1 radio came to an unseen end, Johnny Popko has started something called the “Popko Project.” For those who do not know Popko, he was the voice of Alt 92.1.

 Since the ending of the beloved radio station, the “Popko Project” was born – a series of podcasts about local music and more. 

Recently the “Popko Project” & “Axelrad” launched “Shirts For The Scene.” “Axelrad” is a screen printing company located in the Wilkes-Barre area. 

“It’s no secret that 2020 has not been the year any of us wanted.  While COVID-19 has had a negative impact on everyone, the entertainment industry has taken one of the biggest hits,” said Popko Project host Johnny Popko. “As we continue to social distance and venues are forced to maintain certain capacity limits, bands can’t tour or play in the local venues.  Photographers who specialize in concert photography are not currently needed.  Entertainment writers have been limited in regards to event coverage. The list goes on.” – Highway 81 Revisited. 

On the “Axelrad” site, you’ll find t-shirts from all sorts of local bands that need our support to make it through these rough and dark times.  All of the procedures from the shirt sales go directly to the band the consumer bought from. No money will be taken from the bands.
