leave a comment »

It’s New Year’s Eve, December 31, and we close an exciting year, thanks to you.

On February 11 the new tower at Madisonville Community College began to ascend from its foundation. 90.9 FM Madisonville signed on the air in March.

On May 11, WKMS began its 40th anniversary Year, having started as a 13,000 watt service transmitting from a KET Tower near Farmington, upgrading to 100,000 watts and transmitting from a tower in LBL in 1980.

In June 89.5 FM Fulton, Martin, Union City signed on from a tower in Water Valley.

In August, we enjoyed a festive 40th Anniversary Appreciation Party with listeners raising nearly $5000 in silent auction bidding, and music with the Solid RockIt Boosters at the Carson Center in Paducah.

On September 10th, Ruby Lodge at Spring Lake in Madisonville hosted a WKMD Debut Party with lovely listeners, refreshments and music from WKMS HD2-all classical.

Thanks again for your gifts in 2010. We hope to see you Saturday, January 15, for The Grascals Concert! Happy New Year!
