Still, there are other ways to join in on the weekend fun. A radio station will play hits from the 1970s all weekend long. By tuning into KHMB Radio 1710 and calling 726-1710 with comments, dedications and requests, Cougars can hear tunes and more from the "official radio station of the reunion," said Voisard.
