Bring a beloved local radio station back to life!

Donation protected
My name is Fred Morton, and I need help bringing Lamesa's beloved radio station back to life. Radio Station KPET has been an integral part of Dawson County, Lamesa, and West Texas for an impressive 76 years. From its inception as a daytime-only station in 1947 to its growth into a digital and FM broadcaster on 94.9 MHz, KPET has played a pivotal role in connecting and entertaining the community. It's not just a radio station; it's a living legacy that deserves to be preserved for future generations; it's a reflection of the local culture and identity. The station has been a constant companion through the years, offering a platform for local news, events, and discussions that matter most to the people of Dawson County and West Texas.

Losing KPET would mean losing a piece of our collective history and shared experiences. In times of joy and crisis, KPET has been there, serving as a lifeline for information, entertainment, and community updates. The sudden loss of the managing partner last summer has left the station in a state of flux. Your contribution to the GoFundMe account will not only help bring KPET back to life but will also ensure the continuity of this vital community connection.

The unforeseen circumstances surrounding the passing of the managing partner have left KPET in a precarious situation. We urgently need your support to raise funds for outstanding bills, maintenance of the broadcast tower, and essential equipment repairs. Every donation to the GoFundMe account will go directly towards securing KPET's future and maintaining its service to the community.
