Music fans, you’ll want to include a tour of the KBON radio station during your visit to Eunice, Louisiana. The station first went on air in 1997 with the purpose of promoting the local music culture. In fact, the station’s original owner, Paul Marx (now deceased), was inducted into The Louisiana Hall of Fame in 1996 for his preservation efforts of Louisiana music. Today, 101.1 FM is a variety music station that highlights Cajun, zydeco, and swamp pop artists and plays a variety of other music genres. During your visit, check out the wall with signatures of local legends. Many of these legends are honored at the Le Cajun Music Awards, held annually in August. You can also see them play on stage, just down the road, on a Saturday night at the Liberty Theater.
Tours of the station are available.
