Early Broadcasting in Adair County, Kentucky

A note of explanation: This odd little critter just happened. All that science-y stuff aside, I'm pretty sure it's a product of spontaneous generation. As Uncle Mart told the revenuer about the gallon of moonshine he was caught carrying, "Hit warhn't there, and then it wahr." It started out as a brief response to a Facebook posting, but then it grew, and grew again, and grew some more, and now it's neither animal, mineral, nor vegetable, fish nor fowl, this nor that; rather, it's a rambling, disjointed look at early broadcasting in Adair County. By no means does it claim to be a history; rather, it's an attempt to identify some of people involved and some of the building-block events that occurred from 1945 though the summer of 1951. --JIM

Early Broadcasting in Adair County: a false start; side issues; a remote station & more side issues; WAIN


The week before Thanksgiving, 1945, came word a group of Adair Countians had "formed a stock company with the view of establishing a commercial radio station in Columbia. . ." and planned to incorporate as the South Kentucky Broadcasting Corporation. Officers of the group included Columbia businessmen S.C. Bybee, President; Barney Rasner; Vice President; and J.R. Kerbow, treasurer; Rev. L.R. Fugit, then serving as pastor of the Columbia Christian Church, secretary; and Rev. Clifford Spurlock, program director.

Rev. Spurlock, a minister of the United Brethren faith, had long been interested in recording and broadcasting.

Letter: Lerman's was a magical place for me

Jennifer Perkins writes:
The old Lerman's Bro. store has saddened me for many years. It was once a magical place for me. My Grandmother, Cuva Scott, worked there for over 30 years.

The large entry windows filled with mannequins wearing clothing always caught my "little girl" eyes. I remember my Grandmother buying patterns and material to make my sister and I clothes, we would sit on stools and look through the big Simplicity and other pattern books.

I loved watching Grandmother wrap Christmas presents for customers with folds of perfection, and eating lunch with her in the grandest upstairs area EVER, in the history of second and third story buildings.

Memories of Mr. Abel, Joe Taylor, and Betty Coop along side of my Grandmother are so vivid in my mind. I'm certain that this building doesn't hold memories for others like it does for me, but I hope that it can be saved, restored and loved again. --Jennifer

Proud of new sign coming soon on Hwy 55 in Campbellsville

2019-02-16 - Campbellsville, KY - Photo by Larry J. Smith, General Manager, The Big Dawg, FM 99.9 radio.
With the help from the Campbellsville American Legion Post 82 and a local attorney, Larry Joe Smith reports that this sign is coming soon to the right of way near the Infac Corporation in Campbellsville. Inspiration for it came while serving on the bicentennial committee a couple years ago and continued when he was recently being elected onto the board of directors of the Campbellsville Taylor County Chamber of Commerce. He said the new signage on Hwy 55, going north into Campbellsville, meets a long held goal to achieve rebranding of the city entrance.
