KLKS is gone


I guess in a few days KLKS will be off the air waves. I can’t imagine life in the Lakes Country without KLKS playing on the radio. For years my husband and I would drive up north from the cities and at Rice we could finally get KLKS and feel our blood pressure come down a notch as we listened to Frank Sinatra or Dean Martin. Hearing KLKS meant our weekend had started and we were in friendly country.
