KLWN 1320 to broadcast from Eudora
Radio station KLWN 1320 will be broadcasting live from Eudora April 24. "According to the Record with Hank Booth" will do a show from 8:10 to 9 a.m. at Coffee Talk, 724 Main St.
The show focuses on special events throughout Douglas County.
Coffee Talk owner David Alvarez, in an effort to illuminate the upcoming events of downtown Eudora, organized the broadcast by inviting the radio station to Eudora.
"My whole motivation is to get the word out on Eudora to the surrounding communities," Alvarez said. "We've got a lot of things happening this year."
The most immediate event is a concert the Chamber of Commerce and Alvarez are organizing at CPA Park that will take place most likely on a Sunday in early June.
"I decided on Sunday because I want all of the local businesspeople to be able to go instead of being stuck in their shops," Alvarez said. "I think they'll be big supporters of it."
Alvarez said owning a business in downtown Eudora increased his desire to see more events in downtown Eudora.
"I can see the need to have something down here as far as a festival goes, and not just to bring people downtown, but to bring them to Eudora," he said. "I don't have any grand plans. I know it's been talked about before but let's just do one - let's do it small and let's do it right - and see what happens after that."
