Czeska Musika: Every Saturday from 9-11 a.m. we play Czech music to appeal to our audience with Wilber, the official Czech capital of the United States, being within our transmitter range. We are lucky enough to have two citizens with Czech heritage come in and host the show for us, Sue and Elmer, with one of the KDNE staff members running the board to produce the show. This is one of our most listened to programs.
