Assuming you start out with a timestamp, this should do the job:

$datestring=date("l, j F Y",$timestamp)

Open in new window

echo  date('l \t\h\e jS \of F Y g:i:s a', mktime(0, 0, 0, 9, 11, 2011));

Should do it. More examples here

If all you have is the input shown above, you could do this:

$datestring=date("l, j F Y",strtotime($inputdate));

Open in new window
