So true. I used to listen to an online feed of a Lubbock, TX AM station that played lots of old rock and country (and plenty of Buddy Holly). They had to stop the free feed because of FCC costs. Now they charge $10 a month for online listening.

I know what you mean. Diane Kraal makes my skin krawl!

Denver's version can be found at AM 1430 - KEZW. Every evening at 7 they host "When Radio Was", an hour long show that rebroadcasts the radio serials (The Shadow, etc.) and lots of comedies.

there's one station that has a really fun "lunch w/ sinatra" show during the week.



The fabulous 570 here in LA does something similiar, at 5pm they play 5 sinatra songs.

In the morning (at 9am) they let the listeners e-mail a song list to the station that they play.

I should also add that they do play a fair amount of Dianna Kraal (is it "Costello" now?) and...Rod Stewert. Seems like they play him every 30 minutes.

here's a website you guys can check out www.radio-locator.com

In the Dallas area I listen to a great oldies station: KAAM 770am. WAY better than the 100 song rotation-station KLUV. Shoot, I can tell time by their songs. "OH KOKOMO IS ON! It must be 3:24."
KRVF 106.9FM is out of Kernes TX. I can pick them up, and right now they pretty much play non-stop oldies. Just a 5 min commecial break here and there. But it sounds like it's being piped from the internet.. it has that watery sound.

Other than that I listen to classic rock or KNON, they have a great TX Blues show and Lone Star Dead (Grateful Dead that is)

I generally hate typical oldies radio because they play the same 100 songs over and over ("Good Vibrations", "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling", "Stand By Me", etc.).

But, in San Diego in the late 80s and early 90s there was an amazing oldies station on AM. I can't remember the call letters or frequency, but they played anything from the fifties and early 60s if it was in the top 40. I heard so much 50s group vocal and R&B that I had never heard. It was the next best thing to the Huggie Boy show I remember hearing on AM at night in the early 80s (is Huggie Boy still on the air?). I sure wish we had a station like that here now.



Ws it Mighty 690?

Here in San Antonio we have a station called KAHL call 1310. This station plays mostly standards and easy listening, something that KLUP used to play. Unlike KLUP this station plays few commercials. Ah yes those were the days. It's a shame KLUP is all talk.Music on am radio is not dead! KONO is on AM too! KKYX is still on am too!
