Behind the broadcast: rebuilt computer system for the new year!

Tuesday, December 22, we rebuilt our computer automation system. And, due to the pandemic, we are currently limiting studio access. Which meant we turned off our transmitter while we did the work. If you heard intermittant periods of no broadcast, that was why- things are back to normal at this time!

Please consider a year end donation to your locally owned, locally operated, all volunteer programmed, low power radio station- go to - any donation goes to keep the station on the air!
