A big VOM welcome to our new readers. It’s very exciting to see our little Voice of Muscatine paper expanding so quickly and sharing the good news happening all around Muscatine County.
I’m KWPC’s morning show host, Millie in the Morning. Please join me each Monday through Friday from 6:30 until 10 a.m. on FM 95.1 or AM 860. I often refer to myself as a 305 Girl as I spent my grade school years growing up on a little farm right outside of Letts on Highway 305, and much of my family still lives there. Later I would spend a few years in Durant, Wilton, and West Liberty, too. Yes, we moved quite a bit, but it gave me a great appreciation for the unique qualities in each of our small towns.
Every morning at 7:25 we celebrate your special moments during the Taco John’s and HyVee Floral Shop’s Birthday and Anniversary Show. On Wednesdays and Saturdays, we get a few extra minutes to chat during Buy, Sell, and Trade from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m. KWPC brings you a variety of shows, like Wester Drug’s Ask the Pharmacist, Social Action Radio, God Talk, and Pearl City Iowa Realty’s Real Estate Radio. But my favorite show has to be Dishing It Out. On the second and fourth Fridays of the month, my mama joins me for an hour of sharing recipes and memories of our small-town Iowa lives.
Over the past three years here at KWPC, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing area folks every morning at 8:15 during Moving Forward, and I’ve learned we all share a common bond: love of community and a desire to help our towns flourish. I really enjoy showcasing the people that make our communities great! If you know a person, organization, or event that I should feature on the show, give me a call at 563-263-2442. My goal is to encourage folks to get involved in their community. That’s why, when the microphone goes off, you’ll find me volunteering all around Muscatine. I guarantee your town has non-profits that need your help today. Find out how you can lend a hand and help keep your community Moving Forward.
