We’re pleased to announce that we’ve updated our window stickers to make them more readable and we also have fresh program logs containing the latest program schedule, how to contact the program producers and other information about Christian Family Radio.
Program logs and window stickers are free to our listeners. Stickers are available for our main KOLU transmitter at 90.1 FM (Tri-Cities, Hermiston and outlying areas) and 88.9 (Yakima and the Upper Valley). You may receive yours by contacting us and letting us know how many of each you’d like (feel free to pass them out!). You can contact us through information on our Contact page. Don’t use the comment section below, though, unless you want your information posted for all to see!
The new 5-ton air conditioning unit that is vital to keep our 20,000 watt transmitter cool has been moved into place at KOLU’s transmitter site.
This unit is a packaged system, which requires no space inside our building. This is important, as our once-roomy transmitter building is becoming full with a large 2-cabinet transmitter, a couple of equipment racks, along with space necessary to keep clear of electrical panels and disconnects.
Also, we met with the highly experienced engineer that is assisting us in assembling and testing the transmitter. Tasks necessary to complete work on the transmitter were reviewed. The good news is that the transmitter is in excellent condition, and we only need a few additional parts to begin this phase of the work.
Our electrician will be wiring the air conditioner unit and the transmitter shortly. After this is done, holes will be cut into the building for duct work, then final work on the air conditioner will be completed. Along with this we will begin testing the transmitter.
It’s exciting to see this project nearing completion. Please keep this work, along with the safety of all those that are helping us, in your prayers.
We are pleased to announce that we’ve moved our children’s programming to earlier time slots to provide these stories and teaching programs at times that would be more convenient for this special audience.
This was only done after much thought and input from our listeners. During the week, children’s programming used to start at 4pm and was in a one-hour block. When we started airing Adventures in Odyssey, it was simply added after the other programs, putting it into a time when listeners were commuting and preparing for their evening. By moving these programs up to 3:30, they are airing in the “after school” time block. And, placing them back-to-back, they are finished before 5pm.
Saturday programming also began later in the morning, at 9:30. Most children are up well before this time, and families are starting their Saturday activities well ahead of the noon time that the programs ended. We now start the airing of the programs at 8am, and finish them before 10:30. Of course, Bible Quiz will continue to air during this time, so be sure the kids (12 and under) listen carefully to win a Walmart gift card!
In making these changes, a couple of other programs were affected. Here’s a list of the changes:
