Good News: Stage 2 Approved
Special Use Permit Granted
The Burlington Planning and Zoning Board of Adjustment granted our request for a Special Use Permit to allow KCDM to install a radio tower and shelter on the south end of the Notre Dame High School property, adjacent to the baseball diamond. This is great news and puts us one step closer to finishing our Relocation Plan. The final stage will require the Federal Communications Commission to grant our request to physically move our existing tower. That application is in process and we hope to get that confirmation soon.
A Decade of Devotion
98.3 FM KDME, Fort Madison Celebrates a Decade on the air
Congratulations to our Sister Station in Fort Madison and all of the dedicated volunteers, listeners and donors who keep the station on the air. Today, November 21, marks the 10th Anniversary of KDME 'flipping the switch', making Catholic Radio available to everyone in the Fort Madison area.
We here at KCDM share a special bond with our neighbors to the south as we have the same frequency, 98.3 FM. This allows you to listen to Catholic Radio in your car as you drive between the two cities with little or no interruption.
CAFE Topics Audio
Local people tell the stories or their ongoing faith journey
The CAFE covers topics from 'Wrapping Up the Year of Faith' to Diversity, and the Faith Journey of several local parishoners. The audios are around 45 minutes, give or take, including questions from the C.A.F.E. (Catholic Adult Fellowship Evening) audience. May God Bless all who offered their personal stories and shared other facets of our faith. May they continue to model our Faith for the world. Haven't been to the CAFE? C'mon. You're missing fun, food and friends. It really is a good time.
One Decade of Evangelization
Three Iowa Catholic Radio Stations were honored for celebrating 10 years on the air, broadcasting God's message to everyone in their towns at the 2013 Catholic Radio Conference. The Catholic Radio Conference was a three-day event that included a Spiritual Retreat to The Shrine of the Blessed Sacrement in Hanceville, Alambama. A visit to the EWTN studios where all were invited to be in the audience for EWTN Live with Father Mitch Pacwa, S.J., for an hour on 'Saints and Scoundrels'. The last two days covered all aspects of running a successful Catholic radio station and how to make our Apostalate successful. Attendees included station owners and operators from all corners of the United States, including Hawaii.
