First up, an announcement regarding technical matters.  For the next few weeks, we are likely to have outages on 90.9 WEKH out of Hazard as a result of tower work being done by our “landlord” KET. 

These outages will happen during daylight hours, on days when weather permits work on the tower and they are unavoidable due to the nature of the work as a matter of safety for the tower crews.

You’ll find more information on the WEKU Facebook page and at WEKU dot FM.

Steve continued, "I would expect this from such a liberal station but your choice of when to air it is off the charts. Anyway, letting you know that I will not be sending any more money your way and I am taking you off my presets.”
