Connecting with The Old West

Radio Goldfield – KGFN

In the very trying times of the Corona Virus Pandemic in the late winter and early spring of 2020, we are truly bombarded with a fire-hose of nefarious, negative news from form all corners of our illicit media in all facets. It is sad and there are few escapes.

Then there is KFGN – Radio GoldfieldThe Voice of the Old West, which is a heartfelt, drama free venue of wonderful music, outstanding uplifting commentary and superb, original comedy every single day. KGFN is truly a gift provided by the kind of people a sane person seeks as friends.

Located in the Outback of Nevada USA, KGFN can be heard of course in Goldfield where the station resides and also in Tonopah, Beatty, Hawthorne via FM repeaters. Best of all KGFN can be heard anywhere on this planet via streaming on your Internet connection.

I recommend and invite you to listen to, patronize and perhaps donate to KGFN – Radio Goldfield. The station website is at www.KGFN.org and on FaceBook
