30 years ago KSWP held its first Shareathon. Things were much different back then. Music was on records and programs were on cassette tapes.
The equipment needs would have been things like a new turntable or an office chair. The station broadcast with only 383 watts and operated 18 ½ hours a day.
And the budget? It was less than $4,000. Now it takes $71,000 to operate the ministry each month!
30 years later the needs have increased as turntables and cart machines gave way to computers, satellite, and the Internet.
And instead of 1 Christian radio station, you have a choice between 2 – both on the air 24/7 and heard not only on a radio but also pc’s, ipads, iphones, and android devices.
30 years have changed a lot of things at KSWP… including in 1998 KSWP welcoming sister station KAVX on the air with Teaching, Talk and Worship music. Plans are in place to expand to other Christian formats for reaching more people for Christ!
