Central at WZPL’s 19th Annual Make-A-Wish Request-A-Thon

Make-A-Wish Request-A-Thon

Central volunteered to answer phones from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. on Thursday December 3 for Indiana radio station WZPL’s 19th annual Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana Request-A-Thon.

The station’s Smiley Morning Show stays on-air for 36 hours (starting at 6 a.m. through 6 p.m. on Friday December 4) taking donations to help children fighting life-threatening medical conditions. In return, you get to request a song! (Or even as witnessed this year, pay to turn a song off!)
