OKLAHOMA CITY -- Without warning, on October 6, We the People Radio Network - WTPRN.com - which aired the locally created "Radio Free Oklahoma" heard on 107.1 FM in Oklahoma City and 89.9 FM in Tulsa, among other cities, is officially off the air and closed its doors.
With it's roots in Austin, Texas, where the production took place, WTPRN was considered one of the best truth and liberty radio networks in the world. Alongside RFOK, which included me, Chris Emery and Holland Van den Nieuwenhof were terrific hosts like Deborah Stevens & Randy Kelton of "The Rule of Law; Dr. Katherine Albrecht of "Uncovering the Truth," former Libertarian presidential candidate Michael Badnarik of "Lighting the Fires of Liberty" and "The Intelligence Report" featuring Mark Koernke, among others.
On RFOK, which premiered in May of this year, we had the unique opportunity to bring an Oklahoma-oriented perspective to the major issues of the day. Breaking stories about terrorist connections in Central Oklahoma, discussing underreported issues related to 9/11 and the Oklahoma City bombing, unique perspectives regarding issues like the mysteries of rock n' roll lair Laurel Canyon or "Dark Mission" co-author Mike Bara talking about anomalies ont he Moon and Mars. All said, "Radio Free Oklahoma" was a much-needed voice heard here in the Sooner State and Chris, Holland and I are hoping to get it back on the air. When and how that will happen remains to be seen. In the meantime, GCN's "The Alex Jones Show" will still be heard live each weekday at 107.1 FM here in Oklahoma City as well as repeat shows from the defunct WTPRN.
According to a post at WTPRN.com, the produceers thanked the sponsors and listeners for helping fund the operation over the past 18 months. They write: "Your sacrifices have touched many lives and helped many to understand what is really going on in world politics." Continuing, they write, "We expect to be able to keep the archives up permanently, and we wish everyone well in their quest for the knowledge that the mainstream refuses to bring forth."
So, while we work on how best to bring "Radio Free Oklahoma" back to the airwaves and on the Internet, go to WTPRN.com and listen to archived broadcast of our show or other shows.
Thanks for listening and seeking the truth.
