The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Local radio to honor WWI fallen

 


The people who served our country in World War I have been having their deserved share of spotlight this year, this being the 100th anniversary of the war’s end on November 11.

KVGD-LP 100.1, also known as the “Singing Bridge Radio,” is a radio station located in downtown Goldendale. Though it is not that well known, they offer lots of services for our town.

Broadcasting a broad range of talk shows diverse music and special holiday program, the station is here to offer, as Cory Eberhart says, “All the working parts of any radio station, here in Goldendale.” The station, only a couple years old, is for the community to have a chance to use their voice and inspire them. Recently the station has received a historical presentation project grant from the city to produce programs on the historical events that happened here in Klickitat County.

With the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I coming in November, KVGD will be doing podcasts featuring the bibliographies on each of the men recognized at the Maryhill Stonehenge replica on the 100th anniversary of each of the men’s deaths to celebrate their sacrifice in fighting for our country. Singing Bridge Radio will be doing things such as interviewing the families of the men and telling about where they came from, some even come from towns that no longer exist today, according to Eberhart. Each podcast will be around five minutes in time. KVGD is very interested in expanding more into the community and sharing its resource of local radio with others and teaching people how it works to anyone interested in learning. To contact KVGD-LP, email supportus@kvgd.info, visit their websites kvgd.info and kvgd.fm, or call 773-0645 for more information.
