Live On The AirDecember 01, 2016 | Sunshine Villa
Kay Z., one of our Assisted Living residents, told us that she had been a radio commentator since 1999 at our local Santa Cruz radio station KSCO. We knew how much it would mean to her if she could relive those years and go back to the station, so we came up with a great WOW! Moment that would be unforgettable. We contacted the station and asked if they would allow her to come in and visit again. They graciously agreed, and Kay couldn't wait to be back at this familiar place where she had spent so many years.
Once we arrived, Kay was visibly excited. She went straight in and sat in the same chair she had sat in when she worked there. She recorded over 500 radio commentaries from that chair since she started in 1999! Kay compiled these commentaries into a book which is still at the station today, so while we were there she was able to see it and get a picture with it. It was an amazing experience for all of us to see her come full circle in a place that clearly had an impact on her life.
The current staff at the radio station all greeted Kay as the distinguished guest. She felt so honored that our senior care staff at Sunshine Villa would go through the trouble to put this experience together for her. We hope it helped her reminisce on great memories from her radio career and create new memories in the same place!
