On behalf of the Staff and Management of public radio station KCEP-FM POWER 88.1, we are proud to announce KCEP’s upcoming milestone event: “Melodies Through the Decades” 40th Anniversary Gala Fundraiser to celebrate 40 years of service to you and the community.  The Gala celebration will take place on Sunday October 7, 2012 at 6pm at Sam’s Town Live.

KCEP Power 88 is proud to announce Legendary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame artist Gladys Knight and original Pip, Merald “Bubba Knight Jr.,” will perform at the Gala. Both will join Host George Wallace, and special guests Gospel innovator Bobby Jones and recording artist Willie Clayton. Bubba Knight will pay a special tribute to legendary on air personality and “Father of Black Radio” Jack the Rapper.

Over the past four decades Power 88 has played a vital role in many lives from providing information on health awareness, education, politics, legal matters, housing, finances, spirituality and entertainment, to being a platform, outlet and a development base for career minded individuals in those fields.

KCEP first hit the airwaves of Las Vegas on October 7, 1972 with 10 watts of power.  Forty years later in 2012, we have 10,000 watts of power and we’re now broadcasting in Digital HD to listeners not only in Las Vegas, but throughout the United States and around the world by way of streaming and social media (facebook, twitter, texting and apps)!  Because of social media, we have grown and acquired new listeners and supporters in major cities that choose to listen to KCEP!
