(KTTC) -- For half a century, KNXR radio has been filling our homes and cars with the timeless tunes of the 50s, 60s and 70s. Friday night is the station's last time on air, and the man who started it all spent the day looking back at the last 50... Nearly 50 years ago, Rochester native Tom Jones returned home with the dream of setting up his own radio station, but even in his wildest dreams, he never knew KNXR-FM 97. 5 would stand the test of time and come to hold a special place in... As the clock strikes 1 a. m. Saturday, Jones will be turning off his mic for the last time. Jones' passion for radio began at a young age, but it was not until he received a strange call from an Indiana man after he saw Jones' ad in the paper for a piece of radio equipment. "Says, 'have you ever thought about starting a radio station. "And that man, subsequently, I helped him with his radio station and he talked me into applying for a radio station in Rochester. " That's when KNXR-FM was born. or Mason City, Iowa, 97. 5 FM has provided a steady stream of everything from popular show tunes to vocals. "We want you to get the Internet version of the radio station going as fast as you can," Jones described the callers' urgency.
It starts at center for Tom Izzo, and he'll get a better idea of how things are progressing there late this week, when his Michigan State basketball players return for some off-season workouts. "I think we've got a chance to be maybe real good -- if (Gavin) Schilling and (Matt) Costello get better, I think our guard play is gonna be really good," Izzo said Monday of the centers who will be a junior and senior, respectively, next season. McDonald's All-America forward Deyonta Davis is expected to be a key piece next season, while freshman wings Kyle Ahrens and Matt McQuaid will be in a packed competition for minutes. Shortly after MSU's season ended with a Final Four loss to Duke, Izzo mentioned Schilling and Alvin Ellis as players he wanted to see fully engaged. Assistant coach Dane Fife mentioned those two names first on "The Drive with Jack Ebling" on WQTX-FM (92. 1) in Lansing when he said of MSU players: "I think everybody's committed, that's what I can tell you. Izzo said that the freshmen will arrive on campus near the end of the month to start taking classes and working out with the team, and MSU will get several days of practice in August to prepare for its Aug. Fife said "some of the things" Harris can do reminds him of D'Angelo Russell, who starred at Ohio State as a freshman and is expected to go high in the upcoming NBA draft.
