After drought, plague and the discontinuation of Span Spread, KBTL has a whole new staff, new equipment and a (better) old sound for the Fall semester. Our students have developed new talk shows and new music shows, while keeping the classic rock/light jazz format that you love. With two new podcasting studios at El Dorado and Andover, along with our portable studios, we promise an exciting diversity of opinions and information at 88.1. Community partners are eager to join our award-winning programming, so continue to listen to the ONLY locally programmed radio station in Butler County.
