About FM 99 The Mountain
2014 Marks the 20th anniversary of the first broadcast of FM 99 the Mountain by the Oliphants. Brothers Brent and Jeff Oliphant grew up in the radio family in Dillon, Montana. In 1986 they owned KDZN in Glendive & started putting together their dream in the Beartooths. Silver Rock was incorporated in 1989 and the plan was put into place.
