Meet the Rains County Radio Team


Rains County is actually a progressed development sprouting from the vision of Jon Wedeking as he took over the reigns of KRER 102.5 in Emory, Texas. Even though a low power FM station that reached out about 6 miles in any direction into Rains County, Jon put his love of music, a sense of duty & service to his community that made it special.  Had we not crossed paths with Jon, would have never been born.

While being a Deputy Sheriff, Environmental Control Officer, Volunteer Firman, County Emergency Communications Officer (& several other positions for Rains County), the good Lord put another opportunity before him.  

At a public meeting where the Emory Economic Development Corporation stated, "
We have to sell the radio station!" Jon's offer of: "I'll buy it for a dollar!" was accepted.  

For several years, Jon took on the roles of Owner, Operator, Manager, DJ, Radio Technician, Program Director, Presenter, Announcer, Producer, Broadcast Engineer, Reporter & Producer of KRER Radio. 

Jon's vision of having a variety of music, shows from the Golden Age of R
adio such as The Lone Ranger, Superman & the comedy greats of the 1930s, 1940s, & 1950s as well as rebroadcasts of our local churches sermons & discussions set the tone of what you see here in Rains County

God Bless you Jon, we know in our hearts all those years of hustle & sacrifice to keep KRER alive with only family & the love of music keeping you going, and we know all this effort will pay off real soon. 

KRER has since been sold however Jon's vision now lives in the online version created by Dr. David Bryant Perkins, who by the way was actually the one who paid the Emory Economic Development Corporation that dollar.


David started with KRER in Spring of 2022 when he heard Jon Wedeking needed some help (and looking at all Jon was doing at the time, it should be clear to anyone that some help was needed). 

Sharing Jon's vision of variety & old radio shows, David had only one question: "You like techno?"

 An affirmative answer had David on board.

Since then David created what you see here, expanding the variety of music through the centuries as well as genres, conducting interviews, collecting the news as well as instilling his own philosophy of making entertainment educational & education entertaining...
