ANDERSON, SC (WSPA) – Hundreds got together to celebrate an Upstate legend, Tuesday evening.

The Chick-fil-A on Highway 81 in Anderson hosted the 70th birthday party for James ‘Radio’ Kennedy.

TL Hanna cheerleaders lined the restaurant to cheer on the birthday man. He even had a TL Hanna themed birthday cake.

Community members packed the restaurant to share hugs and well wishes making it a birthday Radio says he’ll always remember.

“The community, they just love Radio,” says coach Harold Jones, “I mean, everybody loves Radio.”
