While people celebrate Memorial Day weekend as the start of summer, the 88Nine staff want to make sure that friends and family have a chance to publicly thank members of the military for what they're doing in support of 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."
To honor members of the military, 88Nine RadioMilwaukee 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 naming loved ones and thanking them for their military service will be recorded over the next few weeks and air on RadioMilwaukee (88.9 FM) during the Memorial Day weekend.
Interested residents can arrange to tape a brief thank you to a military friend or relative by going to www.radiomilwaukee.org or by calling RadioMilwaukee at (414) 475-8030.
In addition to playing the taped thank yous over Memorial Day weekend (Saturday May 24 through Monday May 26), 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 over Memorial Day weekend, listen to RadioMilwaukee (88.9 FM) or visit www.radiomilwaukee.org.
