KACU Listener Survey

A luncheon for the community marks a historic landmark in KACU history; a celebration of 25 years of public radio in Abilene and the Big Country of West Texas.  KACU serves one of the smallest markets in the U.S. and it has been said the area population is too small to support a public radio station.  But, with typical West Texas style, the community defied the odds and has maintained 89.7 KACU, AbilenePublicRadio, for 25 years.
