COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENTS

Give Blood & Save a Life! The blood supply in our county has remained critically low since the onset of the coronavirus. Recent confusion over eligibility is having a significant impact on our regional blood supply. To schedule your donation,  visit www.schedule.bloodworksnw.org or call 800-398-7888.

Lane-Douglas Connector Service suspended effective Monday, March 7 until further notice due to a shortage of drivers and equipment. South Lane Wheels will provide updates when the service is resumed. They apologize for the inconvenience.

Wipes Clog Pipes: It is very important that city residents hooked to the City sewer system not flush items down the toilet that don't belong in the sanitary sewer system. The wastewater treatment plant is designed to treat pee, poop, and toilet paper only. Do not flush paper towels, tissues, disinfectant wipes, diapers, baby wipes, fats, grease and or oils even if they are marketed as flushable. By not flushing items that can't be treated it will ensure the sewer treatment plant can operate as designed and meet DEQ requirements.

Welcome to your hometown radio station... the Mighty 1400!

KNND is your go-to station for country music lovers of all ages. Our independently-owned station provides news, music and community information around the clock. You can also listen to us on FM 99.7 and South Lane Television Channel 47.4.

KNND is a country station with a difference because of our unique line-up of specialty shows produced and hosted by Grovers who have a passion for a particular music genre.

We wish we could have a live DJs broadcasting from behind the red door 24/7, however that is not feasible. When we're not in the studio, the Local Radio Networks' Classic Country format brings you all of your favorites from the 80's, 90's and early 2000's with an occasional tune from the 60's and 70's. We invite you to take a look at our live show descriptions and encourage you to tune in.

Call our studio line 541-942-5548 to share your opinion on Beeper (our weekday morning talk show from 9-10 am), to buy, sell or give something away on Swap-N-Shop (weekday mornings from 10-11 am), and to request your favorite songs during our live shows.

Please call our business line 541-942-2468 to advertise with us, to place a Swap-N-Shop Grapevine Ad, to provide information for our Animal Lost & Found file, or to ask any questions you may have.
