great idea! Fort Ligonier Days info broadcast by Ligonier Radio on West Main

Adams said he observed the thousands of people walking up to the top of town and realized they did not know what was going on until they got to the top.
“Now, they will have the opportunity to hear what's going on, while they are walking up the hill,” Adams said. “We are always happy to be a part of Fort Ligonier Days.”
Adams and Tom Mizikar of Laurel Mountain Borough started the local radio station in 2007. Adams conducted two studies and discovered a frequency was not available for listeners in the Ligonier Valley. Mizikar then discovered the Federal Code of Regulation Part 15, allowing operation without an individual license, offering low power AM stations at the upper end of the radio dial.
“We checked it out and found (station) 1620 to be the quietest in Ligonier,” said Adams.
The station went off the air briefly but started back up in 2008 and has been back on the air 24-7 ever since, according to Adams.
Ligonier Radio is also available online at and on smart phones by downloading a SHOUT cast application.
Adams' voice can be heard on the morning show. His wife Ursula, who is a teacher at Holy Trinity School, is the night-time voice of Ligonier Radio.
Adams operates Creepy Classics, promoting old-time black and white monster movie events and conventions. He is the publisher of Monster Bash magazine.
