In the beginning.... KMFE 101.7 in Emmett, Idaho was a very LOCAL station and was very much a part of the Emmett lifestyle. One of their regular features was the KMFE Barn Dance. Local music for local people. Rod Thomson has provided me with a cassette tape of one of those broadcasts. He asks that I present it in memory of Alvie H. Lanfear, Sr. (June 1, 1893 - April, 1983) and Olive May Lanfear Thomson (January 30, 1913 - February 21, 2004) Olive recorded the shows for Alvie who was in an assisted living facility at that time. The tape is not professionally recorded - it was done with the mic held up to a radio. Nonetheless, it presents a part of radio history well worth preserving. (I enhanced the audio to the best of my ability and it plays fairly well).
Here is that tape , recorded November 15, 1980
