April 8th, 2021

All it takes is a note or a call to us to get our attention and Mike Pinkowski did just that.

In today's show, some of the topics covered included: what the township would like to see the new owners of Milan Dragway do, what the chances that residential or commercial buildings go up if the dragway is discontinued, how the neighbors complain about the noise at night and what the new owners can do to help that situation, Mr. Pinkowski involvement in motorsport, you think you live close to Milan Dragway-Mr. Pinkowski has you beat and so much more topics talked about today.
