    I am now hearing Russian music on 1520. 93.5 still has a Regional Mexican format.

    For a minute, I thought KLBM had moved and I missed it! What are they doing with 1130/1150?

    La Grande has moved to 1150 kHz, though the on-air IDs now seem to exclusively mention the FM frequency. 1130 and 1520 carry the same programming.

    I didn’t think it was religious but I have the perfect call letters: KOSK or KSAK 🙂

    I recall reading on this forum that the programming on 1130/1520 is religious in nature. However, since I do not speak Russian, I have no clue about its denominational leanings.

    Alfredo: Can you find out when this change happened date wise?

    I first heard the Russian music on Feb. 5, and my estimate is that the change had happened less than one week before that. Unfortunately, Bustos is not doing a good job of keeping its Website up-to-date. As I write this http://www.bustosmedia.com/category/stations says that 1520 is La GranD.

    ADD: Are there any Russian speakers in the house? PDXRR’s calendar now mentions the 1520 frequency ( http://www.pdxrr.com/?page_id=4 )

    I don’t know Russian myself, but my wife knows a bit, I will have to get her to do a bit of translation of that schedule for me. There is one name that was familiar to me, a church my wife used to be involved with, the name (roughly translated into English) is Sulamita Church.

    This station seems to be the result of a group of Russian Evangelical churches that have gone in on this endeavour, not sure what their particular doctrinal views are. They probably range from what would be called “Reform” Christian doctrine all the way to somewhat “Charismatic or Pentecostal.”
