    The article is incorrect. Not all of the stations air Radio Aleluya programming. While it is true that KQUE and KJOZ do, KRCM Shenandoah is brought to you by Radio Esmirna, KBRZ/K236AR Missouri City is Sangeet Radio by day, and Fort Bend County targeted “K-Breeze” at night.

    K291CE is apparently originating its own programming, which of course is a no-no. Also imaged as “K-Breeze”, it airs a classic hits format.

    K291CE is currently owned by a church aligned with HCCN, which is Cesar Guel’s group out of Dallas. It is being sold to RAFFT.

    DAIJ brokers time to people like Sangeet and RAFFT. They have about as much control over the programming (read: run EAS and turn off the transmitter as prescribed by law) as Lieberman had over KSEV when programmed by Dan Patrick.
