UPDATE (July 27 at 4:18 p.m.): Our 107.5 FM tower has suffered a catastrophic electrical fire. The coax cables that run to (and up) the tower have been destroyed. This special size of coax cable is not readily available and will take 4 to 5 days to ship, followed by several days of installation and repair. We're looking at two weeks at the earliest before we're back on-air at 107.5 FM and early estimates are that this will cost KOSU upwards of $20,000 in total.
We have set up a special donation page for listeners wishing to specifically support this expense here.
Thank you again for your patience.
UPDATE (July 24 at 2:10 p.m.): Our engineers are ordering the parts necessary to repair the tower. We don't yet have an estimated time for the signal to be back live. When we do, we will update this post. Thank you for your patience.
We are currently experiencing technical difficulties in the Tulsa, northeast Oklahoma, and surrounding listening area. If you tune in to 107.5 FM or 107.3 FM, then you will probably notice radio silence.
Our engineers are on the scene with specialized technicians, working to get the issue resolved and programming back on the air.
This is an evolving situation, so we will keep you posted on all that transpires. In the meantime, you can listen to our streaming service here on kosu.org or on iTunes Radio.
Thank you for being patient and for your support of KOSU.

While the recent shootings of Michael Brown and Tamir Rice by police, and the shootings of Eric Harris and Nehemiah Fischer in Oklahoma, greater scrutiny has been given nationwide to how police interact with the public and when deadly force should be used.
Maybe if the fog on Hectorville Road hadn't been so thick. Or if the flood waters hadn't been so furious. Or if Nehemiah Fischer didn't have that shiny new handgun on his hip. Maybe then he'd still be alive.
