    A North Buffalo woman who publicly pitched an escort service on a radio station when she called to request a song Wednesday was arrested Thursday evening after an undercover sting by Buffalo Police.
    Melissa A. Blumberg, 29, was charged with prostitution after agreeing to perform sexual acts for an undercover detective in her Stratford Road home Thursday, according to reports.

    Blumberg, known to her clients as "Pussycat," called WGRF-FM 97 Rock Wednesday night to make a request and was put on the air by radio personality "Slick Tom" Tiberi.

    "During the conversation with Slick Tom, they started talking about what she does for a living," said Detective David Sugg. "She tells him she does hot oil rubs, massages and escorts and then proceeds to put her number out over the air." (more)
