We have gone through 20 years of recordings and it seems like we had a cast of thousands read some of our PSAs.  Unfortunately time and distance means that we have not been able to match up all voices to the recordings.  If you did record something for us over the past 20 years we want to say thank you and please get back in touch with us so we can get you to record more.

How did it all start?

From Norm Schrein (Station manager):  I have been asked on more than one occasion how do people get into broadcasting and I don't have a really clear answer.  Some folks find out later in life that they have an interest while others were always fascinated with radio in one form or another.  Speaking from my point of view, my interest has always been on the technical side of how radio works.  I started out with some of my friends as teenagers who began our own neighborhood radio station.  We did not have a license nor did we bother to get one.  We just got some equipment together and a long wire and started our broadcasts along with a record player and microphone.  Our station could only be heard for a few houses nearby in our neighborhood but we were on the air!  I also had a CB radio in its hay day and eventually moved into amateur radio.  Other folks took a more professional approach to things such as taking up broadcasting in college while others did it by the seat of their pants.  No matter how they got the bug it apparently stuck and you can see by the varied ages and abilities and backgrounds  of people who have helped us over the years that no matter what their age or profession they still have that interest in broadcast radio and television.  Our station ( which originally began life as Information Radio 1610) is designed to provide public service announcements to our community and that is what we primarily do but because the the input from our volunteers our sound is professional.  If you would like to volunteer with us be sure to let me know.  You can reach me most of the time at 937-299-7226 (Tuesday-Thursday) between 11AM and 4PM.  Finally, below are a few pictures of my teen days and our radio station.  Oh, yes, thanks for listening.  Norm Schrein (Station Manager)
