Today is the 70th Birthday of KLWN. During this morning’s broadcast, my name and this website was dropped. So, if you came here to see the history of KLWN, you can find it here.
First new page moved to WordPress
I finally got around from moving a page from a Raw HTML page and into the WordPress system.
That page is a minor update to the History of former radio station KAIR in Atchison. The station had left the air on Halloween in 2017 and was never able to return to the air before a statutory one year deadline kicked in. The FCC officially deleted the KAIR licence back in April.
Next up will likely be the Pioneer Radio History front-page.
For several years (and at least three hosting providers) I’ve had a WordPress based blog on this site. Although WordPress is primarily known as a blogging platform, it’s also designed to be complete website back-end.
Although I’m more than familiar with most of the intricacies of HTML, having maintained a personal website for over 20 years (!), not to mention a BS in Computer Science, I figure using an off-the-shelf back end would be a good idea.
The first order of business: move the WordPress front-end to the front-page. That has now been completed. Eventually, I’ll move some of my static pages into the WordPress backend, starting with the Pioneer Radio History and Fan Fiction Stories. This might take a while, as I’m working on other things at the moment, notably the Lawrence Train Show.
A shiny metal suit…
For years, Microsoft has been compared to the Borg from Star Trek. However, with all the bruhaha regarding how they are coercing Windows 7 and 8 users to upgrade to Windows 10, I feel that a comparison to the Cybermen from Doctor Who was more apt.
For those of you that haven’t noticed this little quirk about me, I dabble in writing the occasional fan-fiction story.
Pat Roberts is really Clearance Oveur

Music to replace a light fixture to….
This morning, I replaced the socket in one of the light fixtures at the Lawrence Depot. I hooked up my iPod and set it to shuffle. Here’s what the MP3 player returned.
Changes… and Televison
For some reason, I feel the need to comment on a recent announcement involving a television program that I (and about 18 million plus) watch regularly.
