Now hear this!


Lone Star 102.5 on your radio dial.

And it’s right here.

Right now.

On the air.

Our very own radio station.

Right here.

On the square (almost).

Just a hop, skip, and a jump around the corner from Sam’s Antiques.

We must be living right.

Tune in.

Turn on.

Drop out.

Well, at least tune in.

There’s “The Voice Morning Show” with co-owner Charley Jordan III.

And Larry Appleby (former owner of Coffee Mug N’More).

Monday through Friday from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m.

Interviews with local characters.


Community news and events.

And the best Country music.

Sometimes played live right there in the studio.

Such as Allen Ray of the Southern Comfort Band.

Rebecca Dodson fills the producer role with wit and wisdom.

And years of experience.

And Scruffy the Dog oversees the place.

That is, when he’s not performing his famous disappearing act.

So far he’s escaped 26 times.

And only been busted by the law once.

If you are lucky enough to find Scruffy, you get a free T-shirt.

On the back, it says (what else): “I FOUND SCRUFFY.”

So bring your news, your announcements, and your advertising to KHLB-FM.

Or sponsor a segment and help make Lone Star 102.5 Mason’s finest.

We have our very own theater too.

That’s a lot for a little town.

First-run movies.

Top-name musicians.

And, in the future, live performances of all kinds.

Odeon Theatre.

Good fun at a fair price.

And then there’s our library.




Mason County M. Bevan Eckert Memorial Library to be exact.

Just south of the square on Post Hill.

As modern as any big-city library.

Excellent selection of books, magazines, and periodicals.

Computers and TexShare Databases.

And a community room used for lectures, club meetings, receptions, fundraisers, classes of all kinds, storytelling, baby showers, parties, you-name-it.

We got it.

That’s Mason.
