New radio station gathers input

Informational meetings about a new community radio station planned for the Wood River Valley are scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 2, at 4 p.m. at the Wicked Spud in Hailey, and Saturday, Oct. 9, at 4 p.m. at the Roosevelt Grille in Ketchum.

"Drop-in radio where the locals get vocal," is the motto for KDPI 89.3 FM, launched by Dayle Ohlau and Mike Scullion. They are proposing a locally programmed, non-commercial, community-based radio station established as a nonprofit organization.

The Wood River YMCA would provide the studio space and some of the equipment for broadcasting. According to a news release, the mission statement for KDPI is to serve the Wood River Valley with educational, news and entertainment programming. It intends to stimulate interest, awareness and participation in culture, education and politics.

KDPI would be funded through federal, state and local grants, foundations, individual contributions, special events and in-kind contributions.
