New he excels in playing guitar poorly, but he does have some nice guitars, a tube amp and lots of pedals. That blue American Strat HSS is his.

Doug also wears the station webmaster hat. Doug tweets, but does not Facebook. "You've gotta draw the line somewhere," he says. Doug has never used the word "Wonk" in a conversation and does not eat kale or quinoa.

Ways to Connect

Spring Weather Woes

May 19, 2017
Doug Cole

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 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.
