interviews.. it was one of the better local morning shows in the market
that focused on LOCCAL things

I should add....not entirely a failure of the FCC that a market is over
radioed.. sure they allot the frequencies, but too many broadcasters
believe just because you CAN shove a frequency in, you SHOULD do it. Just
because there's spectrum space doesnt mean you should actually light it
up. KLXR had no website and a sparse social media presence as I recall.

I worked for a standalone 25,000 Watt FM in the market and WE STRUGGLED to
break even some months. I can't imagine how a 1kw standalone AM managed to
last this long

KLXR ran "The America's Best Music" soft adult oldies format from Westwood
One via satelitte feed.

I worked for a standalone 25,000 Watt FM in the market and WE STRUGGLED to
break even some months. I can't imagine how a 1kw standalone AM managed to
last this long

KLXR ran "The America's Best Music" soft adult oldies format from Westwood
