    I believe that the Bullitt sisters put KING-FM into a trust, insuring that Classical music would remain on the Seattle airwaves forever. It had something to do with a company called “Beethoven” but remained a commercial station until quite recently. It is now non-commercial.

    Entirely possible, as I was going on a Wiki article, which we all agree are not always accurate. The fact that KING-FM moved into the old KING-AM space tells a lot. Not sure if this space was leased or donated, but KING-FM remains a popular radio choice among Seattle radio listeners. Not sure about the commercial/non-commercial situation of the station back then, all I know is my late Dad loved it, and I’m sure others did and continue to today.

    ^^^ My old co-hort in Anchorage, Bill (Stu) Stewart was running “Power” in Spokane. I don’t see him on the website, so I assume he is another CC casualty, though he was co-hosting the KGOT Anchorage morning show from Spokane. Anything on Bill?

    96.1 KIIX HD1 says it’s “ROCK”

    And the HD2 is still rhythmic/dance (“ROCK” on the HD ID)

    Now that compliments the HD1 Country format.

    Did I ever tell you how much I hate driving through Spokane?
