Signal Expansion Update: Work on Two Stations at Once
KGOU photoWork is continuing on KGOU's two remaining signal expansion projects in Ada and Woodward, and we've made a lot of progress on the Woodward station in recent weeks. We've had several components installed for the station that will be KWOU, including some on the broadcast tower (pictured).

We're still waiting for equipment from the manufacturer for the Ada repeater station. Once it arrives and is installed we can begin testing the KOUA 91.9 FM signal. For more information about KGOU's signal expansion projects, visit our capital campaign pages. It may be a race to the finish line for these two stations, and it might just be a photo finish!

Ring in the New Year with KGOU!

Scheduled performers include the Lionel Loueke trio, live from Boston, a friendly "Battle of the Saxes" in Chicago, the J.D. Allen Trio in Denver, and Dianne Reeves live from Yoshi's in San Francisco. See all the festive specials we have planned on our Holiday Programs page.
