KRE - Art Westlund and Don Hambly

Art Westlund and Don Hambly

Arthur Westlund (left) and Don Hambly (right) were the principal hands on the KRE rudder for nearly 30 years. Westlund managed Chapel of the Chimes mausoleum, an early KRE advertiser.   He leased KRE from the First Congregational Church in 1930, then acquired it outright in 1936 and was its owner and manager until 1963.   Hambly was the station's commercial and program manager for most of those same years.  (CHRS Archives)
