Religion’s Revenge on Park City

You probably know that KPCW, Park City’s  local radio station, recently changed frequencies from 91.9 to 91.7.

What you may not know is what happens when you leave “heathen” Park City with your station set at 91.7. If you head to SLC with your dial set at 91.7, once you near the bottom of the canyon, you just may hear:

“So repeat after me: If I withhold the truth, may I go straight to hell where I will eat naught but burning-hot coals and drink naught but burning-hot cola. Where fiery demons will punch me in the back where my soul will be chopped into confetti and strewn upon a parade of murderers and single mothers where my tongue will be torn out by ravenous  birds.”

Yep, Christian radio.

91.7 KUFR… the home of  “Family” radio.

I can only explain the chance occurrence as God’s revenge on Park City. I can hear him saying, “You Parkites think you are “holier” than thou! Well, come to Salt Lake to shop at Costco and I’ll show you my power.

Of course, the even funnier (yes I know that’s not a word) thing is that according to wikipedia…. “KUFR, The pejorative term alludes to a person who rejects or disbelieves in God, as defined by Muslims; denies, refuses to accept the dominion and authority of God; or otherwise does not heed the beliefs and prescriptions held by the religion of Islam. Unbelief is called kufr.”

So perhaps Park City is on the side of religion against KUFR, after all. I don’t know. Religion is so confusing.

May I suggest just tuning into KPCW via the Internet and not having to worry about it.

KPCW here. Yes, whether it was 91.9 or our new 91.7 signal, we are limited by the FCC to broadcast to Parley’s Summit and no further. That is the edge of our FCC authorized contour. So we can’t control our neighbors on the same frequencies. BUT, if you’re headed to the valley, you can get our signal most days on 88.1 at least to Mountain Dell. And remember you can pick us up on your phone anywhere. We have a free KPCW app you can download from any app store. We have listeners on every continent these days–even Antarctica! Got a message last week from some PC ex-pats living in Hong Kong that they tune in our Wednesday Deer Valley concerts every week for a taste of “home”.
