Red River Radio Network

Took a nice, relaxing canoe trip down the Red River in eastern Kentucky today. We used a hybrid canoe/kayak with very comfortable lowbacked seats. Along the way we passed a gigantic, house-sized boulder that people were jumping off and into the river. I didn't bring my camera for fear that I'd lose it or get it wet if we tipped the boat but that never happened. In fact, I ended up pushing the canoe more than once after we bottomed out in the shallow river.

The Red River Radio Network is member supported and affiliated with National Public Radio. It consists of four stations and one translator:
KDAQ 89.9 FM - Shreveport, Lousiana
KLSA 90.7 FM - Alexandria, Louisiana
KBSA 90.9 FM - El Dorado, Arkansas
KLDN 88.9 FM - Lufkin, Texas
K214CE 90.7 FM - Grambling, Louisiana

There are multiple Red Rivers in the United States and the RRRN is referring to the one that forms the border between Texas and Oklahoma, flows briefly into Arkansas and then into Louisiana before heading into the Mississippi River.
