The tiny town of Onomatopoeia is neatly tucked into the rolling limestone landscape with a
gurgling river lazily winding its way across the valley. The Onomatopoeians that remain – for
many have been lured away with the promise of wealth in the Upper Krust -live a simple, rich life. They congregate in a bookstore called ‘Words.’
K O’Brien, Brad Otto, Kile Martz, Craig Anderson, Gereon Wellhouse, Cele Wolf,

WDRT had another great year participating at the Vernon County Fair. Saturday was a big day, and started with Mr. Koppa doing a live remote broadcast via bicycle on Main St. to the fairgrounds, and (after overcoming a few technical glitches) hosted the remainder of his program there with Uncle Ray Hadley.
Listen to the bike ride down Main St. here:
Later in the day, we did another live remote broadcast at the Demo Derby, with Nick and Jason from ‘Driftless Doom.’ We also had a car in the derby, driven by Sam Leighton and painted by Tatiana Katara. We got ‘Best in Show’ for the paint job and placed 3rd in our heat!
Listen to Nick & Jason cover WDRT’s heat here:
See you next year!
