WYMS Honors The Military
April 28, 2008 at 1:23 PM (PT)
To honor members of the military, RADIO FOR MILWAUKEE non-com WYMS (88NINE RADIO)/MILWAUKEE is inviting area residents to tape personal thank yous to family members or friends who are veterans or are currently serving our country in the armed forces. The acknowledgements will be recorded over the next few weeks and air on RADIOMILWAUKEE (88.9 FM) during the MEMORIAL DAY weekend.
"Many MILWAUKEE residents are proudly serving our country today, and many more have friends and family members in the service," RADIO FOR MILWAUKEE Exec. Dir. MIKEL ELLCESSOR said. "Most listeners wouldn't know it, but several RADIOMILWAUKEE staffers have served in the armed forces as well.
"While people celebrate MEMORIAL DAY weekend as the start of summer, we also want to make sure that friends and family have a chance to publicly thank these folks for what they're doing for our country. It’s impossible to say ‘thank you’ too many times, so RADIOMILWAUKEE is going to make some of the public airwaves available to the people who know, love and respect these service members."
In addition to playing the taped thank yous during MEMORIAL DAY weekend, the station will play songs by many of the military honorees’ favorite artists. For more information about the special programming and to hear the thank yous during MEMORIAL DAY weekend, listen to RADIOMILWAUKEE (88.9 FM) or visit www.radiomilwaukee.org.
