Tuesday Was A Big Day!!

Not many celebrated, but they should have!  Yesterday was “Radio Day”!!  Think for a minute about the impact radio makes in your daily life.

You learn what’s making news while you’re driving to and from work, school, & play.  Traffic issues are never a surprise.  Where’s that smoke coming from????  Your favorite political commentators are telling you what to think and how to behave.  You learn about things your neighbors and friends are up to.

And ALL of this (and more) for FREE!!

Radio makes an daily impact in your life, whether you are aware of it or not.  Now that’s a reason to celebrate!

As listeners to KNCO are aware, our transmitter is in it’s final throes.  Keeping it on the air is a full time job, and Thank You Kale (the wonder Engineer)!  He’s kept our transmitter broadcasting with bubblegum and baling wire.  The good news is a new transmitter has been ordered and we should be back to rock solid in no time.

Of course when there is Good News, there has to be Bad News too.

Yesterday also celebrated Pony Express Day.  In Sacramento it was a big day, since Sacto was the western terminus of the Pony Express route. In Grass Valley it was mourned because we learned that our new transmitter was going to be shipped Pony Express . . . . . .
