And now for some Alamo City radio musings!

This will be awesome if it pans out:

From Allaccess:

HOUSTON CHRISTIAN BROADCASTERS, INC. is selling FM translator K285EU/MENDOZA, TX to COX RADIO, INC. for $250,000.  The translator, serving the SAN ANTONIO area, will rebroadcast COX’s Classic Country KKYX-A/SAN ANTONIO.

From radio-locator:

As you’ll see if you click on the RL link, it would mainly cover the north part of town. Even so, that’d be pretty nifty. If the bumper sticker was correct that I saw once riding down IH-35 on the north side, KKYX was on FM at one time, at 106.7. You cannot imagine my disappointment when I found that out, even if I do think X106.7 is a great classic rock station. As great as Country Legends 97.1 in Houston is, when I got to San Antonio and heard KKYX I was blown away by its playlist. It’s great even on AM, but on FM it would be even better!

    Was KKYX broadcast on FM in Houston? I’ve lived in San Antonio most of my life, I’ve only ever known it be broadcast on AM.

      PS: While it’ll surely broadcast better on FM, part of KKYX’s appeal to me is the vintage character that AM imparts on their format—classic country on classic radio.

      Scratch my question…just reread your post.

    KTHT in Houston has the same format, of course; KKYX just has a better playlist. So I think KKYX on FM would be the best of both worlds, although I do understand your point about classic country on classic radio. 🙂
