As reliable as the turning of the seasons, the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon will once again fill the airwaves Labor Day weekend, beginning at 6 p.m. PST, Sept. 5.

The 21½-hour show features a new look, new segments and some really new talent — four winners of a national musical talent competition selected for MDA by Clear Channel’s 865 radio stations. (For details of Get Discovered!, contact your local Clear Channel station.)

Be sure to tune in for great entertainment, research updates and profiles of individuals living with neuromuscular disease — all bound together by an urgent focus on raising funds for MDA’s research and services programs. Check local listings for the Telethon “Love Network” station in your area.
