The Sound is Back On Downtown
The Russell Main Street, Inc. Design Committee hosted Tuesday's What's Up in Russell Coffee at Myers Furniture and debuted the new downtown Russell speaker system.
A longtime tradition of downtown Russell has been the speaker system and music played from KRSL Russell Radio and used during special events like parades.
However, over time, the old speakers wore out and quit working. The old speakers were officially turned off in 2019.
Since then, Russell Main Street, Inc. has led a fundraising effort to replace the speakers.
The installation of 16 new speakers and a new sound system was recently completed.
The speakers and system were purchased from DK Audio and installed by City of Russell crews.
Those that donated to the new speakers were thanked at Tuesday's event and attendees were the first to hear the new speakers in action.
