KOEH 108.3 FM
Dipperville lies in the hill country of SE Minnesota
deep in the heart of frack sand country
and 10 miles from Hoopdeville.
The town lies in a hollow on the banks of Dipper Creek
and all external FM radio and TV signals pass overhead
unheard and unseen.
Twenty years ago, 
the Dipperkripp family
came to the rescue
with a license to launch the town's first
and, to-date, only radio station,
KOEH 108.3FM.
The rest is history.
or is it?
"The rest is history" is what media people and
philosophers say but, we, the townsfolk of Dipperville say 
history is for idle talk at the Dairy Queen.
We like to think that the proper phrase is...
the rest is imagination.
Uff da!

booze bottlesThe recent successful pledge drive left some unasked for gifts at the station, namely liqor. In a spirit of community generosity, Harvey and Milli decide to clean away this windfall before it does injury to anyone else. The cleaning away coincided with a report from technology intern Cecil Snurk who is in training with reporter Jackie McQuillen. Cecil's report covers the new device from Apple, the iPond, which allows users to pond (i.e. transpond) to the location highlighted on their Google map.

The user is said to be "dnopping out" while iPonding to a new location. (Dnop = Pond backwards, get it. So Pond out and Dnop back). In the course of his report, this amazing new technology malfunctions for poor Cecil who sudenly finds himself in a time/radio warp.

Editor's note: This is about as far as KOEH wants to venture into SciFi.

 

Air date: April 16th, 2013. (Tax + 1)

dnopping outWhile having a private party on the left overs of the pledge drive liquor donations, Harvey and Millicent are interrupted by the time share slot but still manage to investigate a new Apple product with the help of intern reporter Cecil Snurk* (who at the time was being trained by veteran reporter Jackie McQuillen who is blameless in the whole affair).

Churk (as he is sometimes called) suddenly disappeared before Jackie's amazing eyes only to return momentarilly, locked in some kind of time-warp. We have asked Tony's TV Repair to investigate, Tony being the nearest we have to a technologist in town.
