When KIFG Radio in Iowa Falls went on the air back in 1962 a fellow by the name of H.A. “Skeet” Preston was brought in as station manager. Skeet was a showbusiness type of promoter from the get-go. He had radio broadcasting experience and as a promoter was manager of his wife Ada’s vaudeville performing troupe the “Seven Sisters”.
Before KIFG “officially” went on the air in July of ’62 it took several weeks to get things organized. We broadcast many a night just testing the system, and local folks would call in from time to time telling us that they had picked up our signal while surfing their AM radio dials.
