A Veteran Country PD Becomes A Licensee


It’s known for “your favorite Country and Honky-Tonk artists” and on Thursday morning could be heard playing Dale Keys into a 1978 take of “Black Mountain Rag” Merle Travis and Joe Maphis and, after that, a Sara Evans song.

For listeners in rural Lompoc, Calif., sandwiched between the Five Cities of southern San Luis Obispo County and the city of Santa Barbara on California’s Central Coast, that’s been the appeal of KTNK.

Now, this AM with an FM translator has been sold. And, if you’re a Country radio veteran, you may recognize the owner.
