"The conservative voice of Liberal, Oregon!"




KFNF
Shenandoah, IowaKFNF in the 1930s

In 1924, pioneering Shenandoah seedsman Henry Field built a radio station on top of his seedhouse.  He began broadcasting country entertainment, information and of course, using the medium to inform folks about his wares.  His company expanded their product offerings to include everything that his rural customer's might want - including the radios to listen to his  broadcasts on!

Visitor PinbackTo put this into context, this use of the brand new technology of broadcast radio put Field on the cutting edge and one of less than 300 radio stations operating in the country at the time.

The slogan of the call letters his station was assigned, KFNF, was "Keep Friendly, Never Frown".

The radio station changed ownership and location several times over the decades and was most recently acquired by McCook Radio Group in Nebraska.
