    Might have to go to the game tomorrow night so I don’t miss the last minute listening to Meatloaf.

    Chad,
    I want to apologize to you and our many listeners for losing play by play audio twice during last evenings Sheldon vs MOC boy’s game. From what I’ve been told by our station engineer / programmer and by our sports director the outage was caused each time by a dropped phone line in Orange City which caused our programming to default back to music. KIWA works very hard to avoid such issues but they seem to occur regardless.
