It started with a favor from a distinguished former Kansas governor.
In 1950, Alf Land on gave a malfunctioning radio transmitter to Andrew “Skip” Carter, who was in pursuit of his dream to start a radio station. Carter drove to Leavenworth, retrieved the transmitter and hauled it back to Kansas City on a flatbed truck.
Today, 60 years later, KPRS-FM is still firmly rooted on the Kansas City land scape. And according to the president of the family-owned business, KPRS Hot 103 Jamz is here to stay.
