RiverFest was a 2-day event held May 23/24, 1981. Bob McTyeire’s company, Ram Sound, set up an MCM system on a river barge tied to the dock. This was playing towards the bank at Murray Park, just outside of Little Rock, AR. Future Klipsch Engineer, Bruce Marlin, and Wayne Snow can be seen at the monitor board behind the MCM’s.

Bruce recalls, “… the promoter wanted the sound to go 300 feet and stop so it would not interfere with other stages at the top of the hill. Bob told them, 'no problem' and kept on with what he was doing.”

KXLR 1150 AM was a country station that no longer exists.
