“Kaley is responsible for our music sound and she has a great ear for the music we should be playing,” said Keith.  “She works behind the scenes selecting songs and scheduling music but she especially shines on-the-air.  Kaley is one of our most talented on-air hosts and she creates radio shows that need to be heard.”

Thanks Canton and Plymouth

Pledge Drive 2015 Max Kuang and Chris Butzlaff
The 88.1 The Park Staff would like to thank listeners, friends and alums of the station for their support during the 88.1 Thanks for Giving Pledge Drive.  The pledge drive is one of the station’s main fundraisers each year.

This year the station raised nearly $8,000 of their $8,810 goal.  The money will help the station impact the lives of students and serve the Plymouth Canton Community.

“We are truly blessed by the support of this community,” said Bill Keith, Station Manager.  “We couldn’t have done this without the support of our amazing listeners and the hard work of our student staff members.”

Bill Keith interviews author Warren Zanes about his new biography of Tom Petty.  The book is simply called Petty.  Zanes played in a band called the Del Fuegos in the 80’s and his band eventually opened for Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.  He left the Del Fuegos shortly after the Petty tour but continued to be a fan of Tom’s music.
