Lambda Weekly celebrates 30 years
Listeners of  89.3 KNON-FM are invited to the KNON studio on Aug. 24 at 11 a.m. to celebrate Lambda Weekly’s 30th anniversary on the air with a party honoring former Councilwoman Angela Hunt.

Hunt, who served on the Dallas City Council for eight years representing District 14, which includes much of Oak Lawn, will be in the studio discussing her time on the council.

Philip Kingston, who replaced Hunt on the council, will also be in the studio.

Listeners may make on-air comments and ask Hunt and Kingston questions. After the show, lunch will be catered by Thairrific.

The event is a fundraiser for KNON, a noncommercial station that relies on events and listener donations for its funding. A donation of $25 or more is requested to participate.

Lambda Weekly is one of KNON’s few remaining shows that began in August 1983 when the station first signed on the air. Bill  Nelson, the show’s original host, left to run for City Council. KNON is at 5353 Maple Ave. Parking and studio entrance are in the back of the building.
