    “1380 is now wall to wall worn out 50s & 60s oldies. “

    Still country, online, on Feb 18 early AM.

    Jimbo I heard the same thing. Their FB page says they will stream sometime in the future so the online audio is some kind of artifact. The big question is will flipping KSRV from Country (The Bull) to oldies pay off? Lotsa folks oriented to country in the coverage area. The AM signal is not a presence in Boise. Maybe Big Jack should have saved his money and picked up 99.5 KKOO from Treasure Valley Bdcasting.

    They could have picked up 890 for 1/10th of what they paid for 1380.

    There’s also the 1020 and 1400 construction permits closer to Boise.

    KKOO has severe signal problems in Boise proper.

    For the right $$$ you could maybe get the full class C Boise 102.7 CP and

    have parity with the other Boise signals. But have a feeling it’s already taken by another big station group.

    CUMULUS Country KIZN (KISSIN’ 92.3) and KQFC/BOISE has hired HANK AARON as the stations’ new PD. Additionally, he will host middays on KISSIN 92.3.
