The Ultimate Party - Saturdays | 6-11pm

Tom Kent Island Weekends

I’m at this soccer game with my daughter Katie at the University of Akron.

A whistle blows. It’s half-time. I decide to mosey next door where the Akron Zips baseball team had a game in their new state of the art stadium. I was struck by the idea that they had modeled their facility after major league baseball parks. There was music blasting between innings just like the big leagues. In the stands I noticed what appeared to be a 12 year old girl singing along with “I Feel Good” by James Brown and then right beside her was about a 54 year old woman singing along too. What I witnessed I’d probably seen a hundred times before, not just at sporting events, but also at parties. What was different was on that day the light bulb went on. It was crystal clear that we’ve got an entire culture that has been inundated over the years with great party music that everyone knows and loves. Music that makes all of us, in the immortal words of Mr Brown, feel good! And so, The Ultimate Party show was born!

Saturday night would be the platform and feeling good would be it’s anthem.

Party music has no boundaries. It’s genderless, ageless, and era-less because it’s timeless! ”The Ultimate Party” is the most fun you will ever have listening to the radio…I promise! It’s five hours of wall to wall party hits. If it wasn’t a party hit, it ain’t gonna be played. Period.

Please let me know about your favorite party songs you’d like to hear more of or any ideas you may have for the show. Reach me live toll free at 1-800-Tom Kent this Saturday night, or email

I look forward to hearing from you!

Lovin’ Life, Livin’ the 80′s” | Sundays 2-7pm

Lovin’ Life, Livin’ the 80′s” is a show that celebrates music of the great decade of the 1980s. It’s all here…the Pop, the Rock, and the Soul from the beginning in 1980 all the way through 1989. I’m so passionate about this decade that I’ve put together a show that will bring you to a place in time that I know will put a smile on your face.

When I think of the 80′s, I think of Ronald Reagan, the end of the cold war, Back to the Future, the beginning of my family and some fantastic days in radio. Nothing is ever perfect but in my mind, the 80′s was just about as perfect as it gets. Every song takes me back to that place and time. The artists of the 80′s are iconic and distinctive and they’re all played here. Billy Joel, Huey Lewis, Queen, Eagles, Hall and Oates, John Mellencamp, Police, Journey, Michael Jackson, Bryan Adams, Heart, and so many more.

Here’s my 80′s pledge and mission statement for “Lovin’ Life, Livin’ the 80′s”. I promise to play the songs that you want to hear and present them in a fun way that will entertain you. I hope you enjoy this show as much as I do bringing it to you. As with all my shows, I always welcome and appreciate your feedback.
