Flushing builder celebrates 400 radio shows on local air waves

    BURTON — A Flushing builder's home improvement show marked a milestone Saturday on the air waves at radio station WFNT 1470 AM, which broadcasts from Burton's Town Square Media studios. Jonathan Smith's "I Can Build That" show aired its 400th episode.

   Smith has been offering great advice to the "do it yourselfer" home improvement crowd since 2009. The one-hour program currently airs every Saturday morning on the same WFNT station where he started doing shows.

   "Each week we tackle remodeling scenarios and questions with do's and don'ts and money saving tips," says Smith on his web site that promotes the show. You can visit the web site at I Can Build That.

   Smith has been the owner of a residential and commercial remodeling company for more than 20 years. The Flushing resident has been remodeling and building extraordinary structures for three decades. His company's quality workmanship has earned him a reputation as one of the area's premiere builders and remodelers. Smith's company also handles general and preventative maintenance on residential homes and commercial buildings. The company can manage all stages of your project; from the pre-design phase of a project through construction and the final touches.

   Smith's company holds a Michigan Residential Builders' and Maintenance & Alteration Contractors' Board Residential Builder License as well as the EPA's RRP Certification.

   Smith's wife, Mary, co-hosts the weekly radio show with Jonathan and there are occasional appearances by their son, Jacob, who is studying for an architectural degree. The show is dedicated to the memory of Thomas Smtih who passed away in 2011 of an undetected enlarged heart. The Smith family now raises money with a charity aimed at helping make sure other families don't suffer similar losses of loved ones. You can visit the charity's web site at Tommy's Heart to see how you can help prevent sudden cardiac arrest in our youth.

   Smith and son Jacob also host a weekly radio show on the same station, which is known as "The Gun Smith Show." It airs every Saturday at 9 am.
