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!

The Euphonium newspaper, founded in Dipperville in 1861, was burned down in 1863 by an angry mob of Prussian immigrants who crossed the St Croix from Wisconsin. They assumed the word Euphonium was a offensive slight aimed at their cheese, Euphoria. 


The Euphonium reappeared in 1868 under the name Trombone and in 1924 it merged with the Star and Garter under the banner Star Trombone.

It has had many owners, all of who stamped their characters on the paper. The current owners have managed to almost completely eliminate all news content in favor of print advertising but have steadfastly refused to reclassify the paper as an Adpaper (as opposed to a Newspaper). 

$2.75 at corner news stands and at the Star Trombone office on Washington Ave. between Main St. and 3rd St.
