Jay Severin and Michael Graham fans began arriving around 5 p.m. to ensure a front-row seat for the debate watch party on the big screens. Applause, laughter, and cheers have filled the NHIOP Auditorium this evening, as community members are fully engaged. Nearly 200 people currently pack the Auditorium, which has been turned into a make-shift radio station. 96.9 FM WTKK’s Michael Graham sits in the back row, actively pounding the keys of his laptop, prepping for the radio call-in show that will begin in about an hour. Jay just arrived from Boston, after finishing his 3 to 7 call-in show on TKK.

Following the debate, Michael and Jay will take questions from both the audience and via call-ins from cars and homes. Spirited questions are anticipated until 11 tonight.
