LA GRANDE, Ore. (EOU) ⎯ For those who have ever passed by the studio of KEOL on the EOU campus and wondered, “what’s in there?” a chance to find out is coming up next week.

An open house is planned from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9 at the radio station on University Boulevard. EOU students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to see the interior of the studio and meet KEOL management and disc jockeys. Information on promotion services offered by the station will also be available.

“We are really trying to reach out to the campus and community,” said Cesar Herrera, station manager. “KEOL is a unique place that has something for everyone.”

The station’s physical location has changed many times since it was founded, but it has maintained a presence on the area FM dial for more than 40 years.

KEOL has been at its current location adjacent to Pierce Library since 1991. New music arrives at the station daily and the small building boasts roughly 25,000 CDs and 35,000 records, arranged and shelved alphabetically by Jenifer Tarkus, music director.

EOU students can become disc jockeys at KEOL by taking the FM1 Broadcasting class offered through INTACT. The one-credit class meets from 7-9 p.m. Monday nights. For more information, visit KEOL on Facebook at www.facebook.com/KEOL91.7FM.
