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.

88.1 The Park Staff Member of the Month for February - Clay Martin



Congratulations to Clay Martin.  Clay is 88.1 The Park's March 2015 Staff Member of the Month.

Clay is a member of the 88.1 The Park Staff.  You've heard him call Football, Basketball and High School Hockey.  Clay helped provide the call of Salem's Hockey Quarterfinal game against U of D Jesuit, from Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor.

"Clay is a true asset to the 88.1 The Park Staff.  He is quickly becoming one of our top on-air announcers at the station.  I always enjoy hearing him host his weekly radio show," said Bill Keith, Station Manager.

Conversations with Mike - April and May 2015



Dr. Meissen interviews State Representative Kurt Heise and Plymouth-Canton Community Schools Board of Education Member Sheila Paton about school funding and Proposal 1.  They discussed the financial challenges faced by the district, the Governor's budget plan, and how the budget is finalized.  They also talked about the impact of Proposal A and the possibility of updating Proposal A.

While the majority of the interview focuses on school funding they also discussed Proposal 1.  Voters will choose whether to support Proposal 1 on May 5.   If passed it will increase money available for road repairs, local governments and schools.
