Spring Weather Woes

May 19, 2017

Farmers may look forward to the rains that come every May. Radio stations and chief engineers? Not so much!

KCCU-FM depends on eight (8) separate and distinct power grids to deliver programming to you. Furthermore, if the power at our studio goes out, the entire network will go dark as happened early this morning (May 19.)

In addition to that, if the internet goes down or the power goes out at one of our transmitters, the signal will be compromised at that location.

The storms overnight on May 16-17 damaged the KCCU 89.3 transmitter in Lawton. 89.3 will be off-air while the part is returned to the manufacturer for service. The part has been repaired and is scheduled to arrive on May 30. Please tune-in to 102.9FM in Lawton or listen online during repair. 

Our guest this week is Lorene Miller, executive director of Lawton's Center for Creative Living. Topics include the Center's regular activities and the upcoming Senior Health and Wellness Expo.

This week, we take a look at the upcoming Arts for All Festival, one of the highlights of the arts year in Texoma. Bobbi Matchette, executive director of Arts for All, Inc., is our guest to discuss this year's event.

This week, David Gabbelieri of Great Plains Ambucs stops in to talk about the upcoming Mudder's Day Run, an obstacle race that doubles as a fundraiser for the club.
