start a low watt station in town. It's legal without licensing if you keep it below a certain wattage and it wouldn't be really that expensive. KPWB suffered from incredibly poor management for years. I still believe a small rabio station can make money in a small market if it's managed correctly. Not a LOT of money, but it could keep itself afloat. It just needs good management and a little talent on the air. I hate to see the station go down, but....what do you do? If I had the money (how many time have i said that?)........

Southern Star communications is out of Farmington Mo. and the way the online search looked Dockins is part of that group. I am sorry for anyone who looses there job in this current economy but I feel most sorry for the very large population of older folks who made listening to KPWB a part of there regular schedule. It may not have been the best station in the world but it is all they had.I personally liked the new format of music but do not care much for the dead air we have now. And seeing how we have nothing but dead air it makes me wonder if the problem wasn't much bigger then just the Piedmont station. Not real sure how Ronnie Ross got brought into this. Maybe there should be a separate post for Ronnie Ross and why we don't like him.

If it is for sale, I know someone who is interested in buying it. Is there a sign out in front with a number to contact if interested?

well look at it like this maybe Ronnie Ross will buy it heck he owns everything else in town. wonder why the business are closing????
I vote we change the name to rossville lol
the station was unmanned as far as the radio side any way except when they did tradeo.
hey I know maybe the church that got 150 thou stolen from it can buy the station and play christian music, oh no wait that would give Debbie and them back her job and do somithing for the parishoners that wont work.
ya know when one person wants to be the king and he dosnt take care of his villagers the village usually does dye, and until the fore mentioned Ross either decideds to open business's or sell the building so somone else can this town will dye, further when the church's are more concerned with how big there buildings are and does nothing for the communtiy, again this town will dye, but hey on the upside we always have the tourist lol

The fellow that is interested in it is Chad Reeves who worked down there when it was part of the Fred Dockens Broadcasting Group. He works at Bening Ford now at Fredericktown.

I sure miss KPWB and the country music. I almost always listened to Tradio and have bought several things off there. It was a great service to the community. I think all the little radio stations are being bought out by big companies. I hope we can get KPWB back on the air like it used to be.

I advertised on there right before they took it off the air. I never heard any of my ads played at all. They had the nerve to send me a bill for $200 but I refuse to pay it because I did not agree to advertise on the new station and I was not even notified that my ads were going to run on it. If they call me about it, they will be sure to hear an ear full because like I said, I never heard the ad and I am not paying for something that didn't play.

I heard that Fred Dockins has taken the Station Back and it should be back on the air in two weeks with new equipment and a very well known voice from another popular radio station close to this area. I can't wait to hear the new voice and that great COUNTRY music we all love. welcome back TRADIO.... GO FRED GO...
