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!

balldropHarvey Smottle here. On December 30th, one day before the New Year, an alien spacecraft arrived over Dipperville. It was lauded as the long-expected rapture ship that failed to show up on five previous occasions. Related report. People were starting to wonder about how genuine Pastor deGoat's divine connections were. Arriving one day ahead of schedule, the ship's commander welcomed everyone in town aboard (everyone except me-I hate flying) and took off.

Since then I have been alone.

The enormous electromagnetic forces generated by the spaceship pretty much wiped out the town's computer-dependent infrastructure not to mention the New Year's ball which fell from the top of the Triple Collection Church of Better days, rolled down Main St. and leveled our KOEH radio station, which is listed on the register of historical buildings - at one time it was a feed barn on a Wells-Fargo route.

I need to decide whether to rebuild the station out of the debris or just walk away. I have heard nothing from the Cities (typical). I am moving the #2 portable emergency equipment into the Dipperville Surveillance Vehicle (DSV) as a temporary broadcasting solution and hope to be on air within two weeks.

I improvised a hand-cranked generator to drive an old IBM PC from the 80's that I found in the wreckage of the Mayor's office and jury rigged a wireless card, hauled the whole pile of hardware up to the crest of Cemetery Hill and picked up a signal so I could update this page and keep you, our faithful listeners, informed on the situation here in Dipperville, MN.

In the meantime, the folks at sister station KFAI will probably broadcast some earlier reports/shows.

In cooperation with the Dipperville weekly, The Star Trombone, we publish here selected news stories which tickle our fancy and drive (or should drive) the shows. However, there is a problem: the Star Trombone's news is always old and we need to know what will happen almost before it happens. So mostly we just make it up and hope for the best. We attribute our stories to no one, charge no aggregation fees, and encourage their distribution across the world wide web so that confusion may reign and truth shine through (Fingers, please untangle this and then post).
