Mobile’s Uncle Henry receives letter from a lawyer, sparks new friendship with Threaded Fasteners, Inc. as he joins Team Tighten Up
Mobile, Alabama (Feb. 19, 2020) Local radio personalities Randy Kennedy and Uncle Henry entered a battle of wills in the weeks leading to Kennedy’s appearance on the Uncle Henry show on Friday. Both radio stars have “Tightened Up” in various ways, using the phrase in segments on their own stations. New to the iHeart radio team, Kennedy told Uncle Henry of his Tighten Up Sports segments sponsored by Threaded Fasteners, Inc. Undeterred by this, Uncle Henry doubled down on his need to Tighten Up, continuing his segments on air. Due to this, the Threaded Fasteners, Inc. legal team decided to take matters into their own hands.
