The Fall semester is officially in session and we could not be more pumped about it! We’re really hitting the ground running, and we’ve got lots of awesome freshmen at the station who are eager to get involved. Those who know us know that we are very freshman-friendly here at The One. But we’ve also got a lot of seasoned veterans holding down the fort and teaching the young pups what we’re all about.
We had our first promotional event at the annual Freshmen Cookout, where we got to provide rockin’ music as well as MC the event. We also gave out some pretty sweet prizes, and if you were lucky enough to win a cool The One shirt, CD, or Blu-ray, then you’re lucky enough!
We’ve got lots of cool plans for the semester, namely rocking the airwaves across the Texas Panhandle, and we hope you’ll join us. The station is going to be jam-packed with Special Shows ranging from sports talk to Texas Country, and of course we’ll still be giving you all your favorite college and indie rock music.
Big, huge, ginormous shout-out to all of our listeners and sponsors – you guys are so awesome! And we hope you’ll follow along with us this semester on Twitter and Instagram using the handle, @kwtsradio and “Like” us on Facebook at KWTS: The One 91.1.
