88.1 The Park Celebrates High School Radio Day – Wednesday April 20

High School Radio Day Logo88.1 The Park uses local radio to invest in the lives of young people and serve the Plymouth-Canton Community. But you might be surprised to find out that 88-1 is located at Salem High School and is run by students at Plymouth-Canton Educational Park.

We know that the students of Canton, Plymouth and Salem High School are fortunate because not every school has a radio station. Because of this unique opportunity, we’ve joined with other high school stations to celebrate High School Radio Day on Wednesday April 20. On that day, we hope to bring awareness to the programs offered on 88-1 as well as high school radio stations throughout the country.
