1998, Jerry returned to his home state, Oklahoma. He did an air stint at the
legendary Oldies station, KOMA, in Oklahoma City, and later he would also do a
show on KOOL-FM (KQLL) in Tulsa, an Oldies station. Clear Channel owners of
KQLL wanted an exclusive agreement and Jerry refused, therefore, ending his
Tulsa/Oklahoma City commute on the Turner Turnpike.
Memories of the 20th Century programs received special recognition from the
Oklahoma Broadcasters Association. He also received the 2003 Trail Blazer Award
at the Fourth Annual Bare Bones International Independent Film Festival, for
promoting Arts and Entertainment. This opened the door to implementing a
successful Internet radio project - on-demand 24/7 programming, that has grown
to reach millions of listeners around the world.
In the fall of 2008, Jerry renewed his pledge to offer objective, entertaining radio programming mixed with multi media presentations. One of Jerry's heroes was Edward R. Murrow who 50 years ago warned the industry that over-concentration of media ownership and pursuit of commercial success would push rates up and at the same time make the broadcasters prisoners of their own success. We have seen the results of his warning coming true with less investigative reporting and independence from special interests almost non -existent in today's media world.

"Why do I continue when most people have retired? It's this situation that I have, I have developed a voice of independence from big media restrictions yet our audience has reached big media proportions. I want to continue offering strong objective programs and yet keep a menu of entertaining things available as well." Pippin stated.
