KWLS to bring Crystal Gayle to the Cotillion for an 'entertainment stimulus'

WICHITA — Larry Steckline is trying to get more listeners for his KWLS, 107.9-FM, by having a concert, but he knows this is a tough time for a lot of people to pay for tickets.

So he has an idea.

"I've got an entertainment stimulus for Wichita and south-central Kansas," Steckline says.

He's bringing Crystal Gayle to the Cotillion Ballroom Aug. 29. Reserved tickets are $25 and general admission tickets are $20, though you can get them for $10 with a coupon from one of the station's sponsors.

"When you see everybody else selling $50, $60, $70 tickets, this sounds like a heck of a stimulus," Steckline says.

He thinks Gayle will be a hit.

"She hasn't been here for years."
