original reason for the KDX venture at internet streaming resulted from
second party request to provide internet radio service, thereby
bringing KDX into being as a display model radio station. When it
became evident that the other party could stream on their own
without need of KDX the display model status gave way to a
of indecision when the future of KDX was uncertain. At that time KDX
became an independent experimental radio service until October 17,
2010, when KDX was recognized as the personal vanity station of Carl
Blare, replacing dull and bland corporate radio stations with something
for once interesting to its listener.

Founded in 1959 as a radio production company, Terrestrial Broadcasting
Service, Incorporated, has evolved,
or you could say been created, into an audio, video, print and most
recently a streaming radio service. During the 1970s our slogan was The Most Most Medium Sized
Recording Studio in the World. From this stage we became Ahead of the Future,
until most recently when our mantra became Slow
but Better. The Company is commercially inactive following
the death of one partner and subsequent retirement of the other.
