94.5 KOOL FM AND FULTON HOMES PROUDLY PRESENTS THE FULTON HOMES NOON SALUTE!

It is with great honor to our nation and those who serve it, that Fulton Homes has partnered with 94.5 KOOL FM to offer an opportunity for local school music programs to show their patriotism. Local school bands and choirs will have a chance to perform the national anthem on the radio with the Fulton Homes Noon Salute on 94.5 KOOL FM.

Every day at noon, 94.5 KOOL FM pays tribute to our country and our troops, with the playing of “The Star Spangled Banner” for its listeners.  94.5 KOOL FM and Fulton Homes is now looking for submissions from local school bands and choirs to perform their version of the national anthem.  Each month, we will feature three schools.   The top submission for the month will be awarded a $1,000 donation to their music department from Fulton Homes and their version will re-air on 94.5 KOOL FM.

Here is how it works:

  • Schools can audition by sending a recording of their bands’ version of “The Star Spangled Banner” on a CD to the radio station.
  • Schools can call 94.5 KOOL FM at (602) 452-1000 and schedule a time for them to come in and record their music program.
  • Fulton Homes and 94.5 KOOL FM will listen to each recording and pick the best performances.

The Fulton Homes Noon Salute is designed to recognize high school musicians and their hard work and dedication to their musical studies, as well as the teachers who develop their talents.
