Flyers announcer Jim Jackson will shave off the mustache he’s worn since 1986 live Wednesday morning on 93.3 WMMR’s Preston and Steve show. The hosts are living in an RV at Plymouth Meeting’s Metroplex Shopping Center in their annual Campout for Hunger to raise money for Philabundance, and Jackson’s shave is in fact for charity. Jackson told us earlier that more than $600 was pledged to Preston and Steve for Philabundance moments after he agreed to shave. His wife of 18 years, Bernadette, has never seen him clean shaven. But she wants to. Bernadette’s been asking him to shave for the past few years. His first bald-faced broadcast will be at 7 p.m. Thursday on Comcast SportsNet for the Flyers/Canucks game. "I reserve the right to grow it back," Jackson told us today. Like their mom, Jackson’s kids, Deanna, 12, and Johnny, 9, have never seen their father without a 'stache and are eager to do so.
