It’s Time to Celebrate Public Radio in Helena
The Last Chance Public Radio Association is celebrating its 29th year of bringing diverse public radio to the Helena area by holding its annual fundraising auction Saturday, November 23rd at 6:00 p.m. at the Staggering Ox in the Lundy Center, 400 Euclid Ave. in Helena. Admission is $15 for individuals and $25 for couples.
Every fall, generous local merchants, artists, and listeners donate items to be auctioned, such as pottery, aromatherapy, baskets, paintings, books and a wide variety of gift certificates for food and services. If you would like to donate, contact Dawn North at 443-4284.
Music provided by the WMDs, and great food from the Staggering Ox, Mediterranean Grill, Chili O’Brien’s and the Big Dipper, will be complementary with the price of admission. There will be a no-host bar featuring beer from Helena’s Blackfoot River and Lewis and Clark Brewing Companies, and a variety of wines from the Pan Handler. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.
Come and help celebrate another great year of public radio in Helena at the Last Chance Public Radio Association’s 25th Annual Fall Auction.

New Yellowstone Public Radio Transmitter Goes Live at 89.1 FM
Yellowstone Public Radio (YPR) is now transmitting at 89.1 FM in the Helena area. The new signal is vertically polarized, so it is best heard on a vertical antenna similar to your car. If you have poor reception at home, you may want to purchase a vertical FM antenna with a signal amplifier.
LCPRA continues to translate YPR on 96.7 FM, but eventually that frequency will be transferred to a new owner as agreed to in the FCC settlement that allowed YPR to get the new transmitter.
Thanks to YPR for all their efforts to secure their signal in Helena!
