Spring 2022: Can’t Keep A Good Station Down

We are the Energizer Bunny of college radio stations; we keep going and going . . . Favorite talk shows return for another season, along with special music shows, new podcasts and sports. Some of the new equipment is on back-order, while others have been received and installed. KBTL continued its participation in College Radio Foundation events, and will be seen in the community and on campus throughout the Fall semester. Despite challenges and limited resources, we continue to be the ONLY locally-programmed radio station in Butler County.
