This bad boy has over 200,000 miles on him and our mechanic says he doesn’t have much life left. The AC is long gone and the truck is about to kick the bucket! You might be wondering why a radio station needs to have a reliable truck. Here’s the scoop: our transmitter (which is how we get the radio to you) is located down a 2 mile bumpy gravel and dirt road. It gets muddy and it’s rough going, but we often need to get out there for regular maintenance and repairs.
