20 Years of Local, Independent, Listener-Supported Radio
YES FM has been in existence since 1992. November 14th marks this radio station’s 20th anniversary of being on the air. This is quite the feat for an independent, non-commercial, listener-supported and, most importantly, local radio station.
To celebrate, YES FM is hosting an Open House at their location, 5105 Glendale Avenue. in Toledo on November 14th, 2012 from 8am until 6pm for the community to take part in this occasion. Light refreshments will be provided throughout the day.
YES FM is right here in the Northwest Ohio community. Being an independent radio station allows YES FM to program directly to the wants and needs of the listening audience.
Over the past twenty years, YES FM has taken great pride in serving the local community. Working side by side with listeners, YES FM has participated in countless community service projects and various food, clothing, and other drives for charities and organizations. Morning shows have been filled with interviews touting local happenings, and informing people about area charities and organizations. The airwaves have been filled with stories of local youth who have bettered our community in some way.
Events are a passion for YES FM. Throughout the years they have participated in countless concerts hosted by YES FM, local churches and promoters. Connecting with the listener has always been important to YES FM and concerts have been a great way to do this, but not the only way. YES FM has held various events for youth and families including house parties, dodge ball tournaments, and softball games. They’ve also held backyard barbecues for supporters and have participated in many remotes to help promote events in the area.
YES FM is a unique entity, not only in the events and community outreach, but in the style of music that they play. They are a Christian radio station that plays rock, hip hop and pop music. The goal is to play music that is uplifting and relevant to the upcoming generation. Being a youth-oriented radio station is not always the most popular way to go, but YES FM has stood firm in its mission to provide today’s youth with positive music and encouraging DJs.
