    Alexandra Comm Dry-cities retrenchment? KQFO-FM has a troubled past. Worth phone calls and e-grams to find out why.
    Alexandra also owns KTIL-FM – Bay City. Bought it a long time ago from Horizon Broadcasting Group for a song.

    Yes, Alexandra has been playing musical chairs with these frequencies for atleast two+ years. I kind of like KQFO, now at 106.7, which is adult alternative, but tends to stray into uncharted waters occasionally. Sister Bob-FM, now at 100.1 is an interesting mix of 70’s and 80’s, going very deep in the library…I like it as a former radio professional, but I can’t understand how the average listener would accept it. Seems the programmers/owners are running stations with music that they like, very little research seems evident to me. But as a radio guy, love the depth of the libraries. Unfortunately, that doesn’t translate to much listenership.

    KWJZ-LP has been NOA for over seven months. Proposed site is four miles north of Duvall – WA. New antenna, like the old antenna, will be nailed to a tree. City of License is ‘High Rock’. There is no such city in Washington State.
