This is the second installment of WYSO's 2012 Community Voices Special. From memories of your first car to man caves, funk music, and a local slasher flick - this hour is full of radio stories by, for, and about the Miami Valley, produced in this year's training course.
Just west of Toledo is the Oak Openings MetroPark, a 4000 acres site that preserves an amazing ecosystem of oak savannahs, abundant wildlife and extremely rare plant species.
