Gil Lamb Advertising History

Gil Lamb broadcasted the first Muletrain News program on March 4, 1954, from Harvey Bass Appliance on Main Street Muleshoe to KICA Radio in Clovis, New Mexico. The first Muletrain News programs were 10 minutes that dealt with only Muleshoe area news. During its two and a half year run on KICA, Arbitron Ratings showed the program was the second highest listened to show in the Clovis market.

The Muletrain News changed stations on July 26, 1956, when Gil Lamb and his wife Olabelle put Muleshoe’s first radio station, KMUL-AM 1380, on the air and later in the mid-1960’s FM 103.1 was added.  The Muletrain continued on KMUL for 24 years until Gil and his daughter Magann Rennels moved it with the assistance of Merlyn Neel to Muleshoe Antenna Company, broadcasting on their cable Channel 6. This occurred on May 12, 1980, when the Muletrain moved back to 1011 West 3rd in Muleshoe, where the Lambs had previously operated the KICA remote studio out of their home. With the help of Magann’s husband Jack Rennels who is an engineer, not only did the Muletrain contain audio, but it also contained locally produced video. The Rennels three sons, Gilrobert, Payton and Greyson grew up working in the family business.

Today we still broadcast the Muletrain News on Channel 6 over the cable system in Muleshoe, Sudan, and Earth and now on muleshoetv.com, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
