Sub-group 13.R    Radio Station KDUR (formerly KFLC, 196-?)
  • Historical note:  KFLC was established in May of  1961 as a five-watt station at 750 on the dial.  It was operated by Fort Lewis College students of the Radio Club and it could only broadcast on the Fort Lewis College campus.  A Smoke Signals student newspaper article dated  May 5, 1961 announced that "The station was installed in the tape room of the Fort Lewis lounge. ... Jim Gillespie has been building the radio in his spare time and it is expected to be finished by May 17.  Sometime ago the student senate appropriated $220 so that the radio could be built."  Its first broadcast was in May of 1961; by May 30th it had logged 400 hours, broadcasting from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m.  (Previously--at least back to the 1940s--Durango radio station KIUP was broadcasting weekly features about Fort Lewis College.  The college began hosting a twice monthly Saturday afternoon 72-minute disc jockey show in January of 1958.)  An Independent article dated Oct. 25, 1962 announced that KFLC had been temporarily abandoned, due to "indecisiveness on the part of the administration along with apathetic student participation."   Apparently, there was "a lack of space in which to adequately set up and operate a station of its type."  At that time, Fort Lewis College Radio Club members returned to KIUP, conducting a 45 minute program every Wednesday night.   Fort Lewis College President Rexer Berndt discussed radio station possibilities in an interview with Roger Rountree for the March 31, 1972 Independent.  Dr. Berndt approved the proposal for a 10 watt FM station on May 3, 1972, and in October of that year the student senate granted the Radio Club $6,500 from a reserve fund, in hopes of resurrecting the radio station.  An Independent article on Dec. 6 1974 announced that KFLC would be granted a license by the FCC "to serve the educational interest as a public trustee in mid-January, 1975," with the hope of reaching a radius of 1.5 to 2 miles.  A Jan. 17, 1975 photo caption announced that "a public address system has been ordered and when it arrives, the station can start broadcasting within the College Union.  Broadcasting outside the union and onto the campus won't start until the station's license arrives."  According to records held by KDUR, the first broadcast was in May of 1975.  KFLC and KDUR merged in December of 1975.  On October 2, 1976--in its second year of broadcasting at 92 FM--KDUR officially broadcast from a new tower on the roof of its home in the College Union Building.  With the new tower, the station's signal greatly improved for reception in downtown Durango and in La Plata County.  At about the same time, KDUR  staff agreed to adopt the Free Format Radio style in which each DJ creates the show, incorporating imagination (the individual disc jockey's personality), music (the entertainment) and words (either spoken or in song, live or prerecorded, thought-provoking or bland).  Presently, KDUR broadcasts reach north to the Purgatory-Durango Mountain Resort, south to Aztec, N.M., and east at least halfway to Pagosa Springs.
