KVPI, Classic Country 1050, is sponsoring an open house for its 60th anniversary Friday, November 22.
It was sixty years ago on November 22 when the parent company, Ville Platte Broadcasting Company, signed on at its original studio location on the second floor of the Evangeline Bank location. Among the original KVPI staff were General Manager Chris
Duplechain, Engineer J.S. Fontenot, W.O. Carson, L.D. Cappell and Guy Mitchell.
General Manager Mark Layne invites the public is invited to attend the open house from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the studios at 809 West LaSalle Street in Ville Platte. Plans call for a ribbon cutting at 11:00 a.m. by the Ville Platte Chamber of Commerce.
Past D.J.'s and employees are invited to attend for a reunion. Cake and refreshments will be served. There will be tours of the studios. Visitors can register for door prizes. Additional parking
for the open house will be available across the street on the grassy lot behind Citizens Bank.
Those attending the open house are urged to bring some
canned goods or non -perishable food to be distributed to the Christian Care
and Share Center.
