  • Prison Show Radio ~Shout Outs~

    Hello Texas Family!

    Not sure how many of you are aware of the Prison Show Radio Station that dedicates an evening to allow us to send Shout Outs to our loved ones. I've heard its really hard to get through but business is good and you just have to keep trying.

    Radio Show# 713-526-5738
    http://www.kpft.org/

    They start taking calls Friday @ 9:20pm - however the shout outs do not start until 10pm. So again you will get a busy signal but you just have to keep trying and trying. Cut off time to accept calls is 10:50pm.

    If you want to do a Prison Shout Out this is the information you want to have ready so when they put you on the air:

    1. Your Loved Ones Name [First Name or Nickname]:
    2. The Unit your Love One is In:
    3. Your Name & Relationship:
    4. Your Shout Out: [What you want your loved one to hear you say]

    I do really recommend that if you can call in - it will really bring a smile to your Loved Ones face

    If you are going to call in please also tell your loved one to be sure to be listening from 9p-11p on the Prison Radio Show.

    WHAT UNITS CATCH THE STATION?

    Per Ray Hill, the Radio Show Host, the following units can hear the station:

    • Beto (very seldom can they hear...there is a Dallas station with the same dial as ours and until we get a tower closer to that area and can knock the other station out, the signal is horrible)
    • Byrd
    • Central
    • Clemens
    • Darrington
    • Ellis
    • Eastham
    • Estelle
    • Ferguson
    • Goree
    • Hightower
    • Holliday (if they have a radio)
    • Huntsville
    • Jester I, III, IV
    • Lewis
    • Luther
    • Pack
    • Polunsky
    • Ramsey I & II
    • Scott
    • Stringfellow
    • Terrell
    • Vance
    • Wynne

      I just want to give credit to RedzReyna an Old Member who brought this info to the JPay Forum about the Shout Outs , I thought it would be fun to bring it to Members who may have loved ones in Texas who would be able to hear a Shout Out meant for them being sent out to them on the air!

          I am sure there has to be other radio stations/shows that do Shout Outs in the area where the prison tower catches the signal. (?)

            It's called The Prison Show its - KPFT 90.1 FM - they dedicate Friday nights to the Texas Prison Unit and their families from 9p - 11p.

            During the first hour of the program Ray, the gang, and sometimes special guests discuss current issues and review the week's mailbag. In the second hour they take the calls that make the show so special, as the callers connect to talk to their family members, friends and loved ones within the Texas prison system. We are all then somehow able to form together to become one large family through our common experience. ;]

            Be sure to tell them to Tune In every Friday night ;] You can also listen to the show online @

              a hint

              If you call in @ 9:20p which is the time they start taking calls then start dialing in again around 10p they take the last call @ 10:50p

              ~ you just have to keep trying and trying its very much worth it.

                I Think this is A GREAT Thing Here!

                To be able to reach your loved one from this side of the prison walls in a way that catches them off guard and the memory will stay with them for the rest of their life (unless they get senile in old age ).

                Couldn't even guess or think what they feel like during and after the fact they got a shout out from their loved one OVER THE RADIO WAVES.

                But you would think some of these emotions are involved: Shock, Bewilderment, Amazement, Ecstatic, Joy, Happy, Pride, Contentment.

                  The Prison Show regularly conducts live, on-air weddings between free-world women and incarcerated men; the groom listens on the radio from prison while his bride marries a stand-in known as a legal proxy. Show host David Babb, a former inmate himself, says the weddings reflect the show's overall mission of keeping prisoners connected to their wives, children and friends.

                    I am going to call tomorrow and make sure everything is the same, cause the links don't work but it could be due to them not being on line right now I will update this post, as their website has them as still being on air.

                        I always hear the radio station on Fridays and always make a shout out to my man. It is true the line is always busy. So what I do is call and if I get a busy signal I hang up and call again until I get through. I like hearing the show so I have my lap top on the website and be dailing on my phone. The first hour is information and updating us up on what is going on in the units and at 10 to 11 is the shout outs.
