Eric Pelz -- Volunteer Sunday Afternoon Host
Eric Pelz was the chaplain for Maple Lane School, a juvenile detention center formerly in Centralia, Washington. He is also a minister of the Presbyterian Church, and a KACS Volunteer. Eric says "for many years KACS encouraged me to use its resources to get the word out regarding the mentoring ministry at Maple Lane. Creating radio spots I got to know and appreciate the dedicated station staff, and so I was absolutely delighted when asked to help out with Sunday afternoon announcing." Eric has lived in Washington nearly all his life, and as with many Western Washington residents, has no problem with the rain and fog, "on the contrary, I love it" says Eric. He also loves music, trains and his wife.
Kerry O'Connor -- Volunteer KACS Country & Southern Gospel Hour, Saturday Night
Kerry serves KACS in several capacities including hosting the Saturday evening Country & Southern Gospel Hour. The Cathedrals are among his favorite quartets, and he has been known to sing in local quartets himself. He enjoys cars, trucks, hot rods, good music, fun family times and ATV's. Kerry has been a part of the KACS radio ministry almost from the beginning of the station. He is also an accomplished actor, and has given performances of "The Innkeepers Dream" and other dramatic parts at area churches. Join Kerry Saturday at 9:00 p.m., right after Bill Gaither's Homecoming broadcast, for a little local down home country and southern gospel music on KACS.
