- The goal and purpose of WPAE and KPAE Radio is to present teaching programs that support the SOUND doctrines of scripture and play the pure SOUND of Christian Music. This ministry radio began in September, 1985 with these goals and purposes clearly in mind so that believers could be edified and built up to do the work of ministry, Eph. 4:12. Our call letters reflect that purpose.
- PORT ALLEN EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING FOUNDATION is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) organization recognized by the IRS and licensed by the FCC as a non-commercial radio station. We are supported by the gifts and prayers of our listening audience. Our regular listeners and supporters who have responded to the needs of the ministry and the prompting of the HOLY SPIRIT, have made it possible for us to broadcast the “..things that become SOUND doctrine.” (Titus 2: 1)
- We want to be known as the radio ministry with a consistent message of sound doctrinal teaching – SOUND RADIO. We want to be SOUND in every area of the ministry as we broadcast 24 hours a day to a potential audience of one million people. Will you help us?
- All gifts are tax-deductible. An IRS approved tax receipt is sent at the end of each year.
On September 30, 1985, KPAE signed on the air at 5:30 am broadcasting on the frequency of 91.5 FM at 380 watts from a 140-foot tower erected in the middle of a cane field in Erwinville, Louisiana. It was during this time that the “Christian School Movement” began to spread across America as one of the largest grassroots efforts of the last century and the idea of Christian radio stations across America was launched. Sound Radio was birthed through the vision of Mr. Willard and Mrs. Arlene Kennedy. That 380-watt tower in Erwinville is now broadcasting at 10,000 watts and stands at 197 feet. In 1996 another tower was added to Sound Radio, WPAE, broadcasting on the frequency of 89.7 FM at 84,000 watts with the tower standing at 489 feet located in Centreville, Mississippi. Staff members have come and gone, all leaving their own unique footprints. Times change, but God’s truth remains constant. We continue to broadcast biblical truth through the preaching and teaching of God’s infallible Word daily. Sound Radio has remained steadfast in its commitment to Mark 16:15, “And He said to them, ‘Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature’.” From a small, low wattage tower in the middle of a cane field in Erwinville, Louisiana, we are now able to reach around the world.
