88.1 The Park Celebrates High School Radio Day - April 22

Start Date: 
Wed, 04/22/2015 - 7:00am - 8:00pm



88.1 The Park was founded 43 years ago and uses community radio to invest in the lives of young people and serve the Plymouth-Canton Community.

We know that the students of Canton, Plymouth and Salem High School are fortunate because not every high school has a radio station. Because we’re unique, we’ve joined other high school stations in the nation to celebrate High School Radio Day on Wednesday April 22. On that day, we hope to bring awareness to the programs offered on this station and other high school radio stations in the U.S. More information on High School Radio Day is at www.highschoolradioday.com.
