    KXY went Classic Country in 2010 I believe. I love KXY and I hope they don't change it.

    Many don't know this, and those that do will deny it ever happened. During high level meetings at (unsaid broadcast company), concerns were expressed (interpret that as 'fears' if you will) regarding kkng and its impact on the oklahoma city radio market. Discussions about how to stop them from being a success included a wide variety of ideas. The (unsaid broadcast company) mission....stop kkng. Steal their advertisters. Force them to make changes to the format that destroys their listener loyalty. And the list goes on.

    Many people post their opinions as to why classic country could never succeed, or that oklahoma city would never support another country station. The truth is, (unsaid broadcast company) was scared when it came to kkng. They saw the potential that it had, and they wanted it stopped.

    And it did. The toe is getting off his/her soapbox.

    KXY went classic country well before 2010. I believe it stopped reporting to R&R as far back as 2003 or 04.

    I can't imagine why they are moving to 1640 AM and have no clue as to what will happen to 99.7, but I know I will miss it. Just can't make myself do AM, so will have to go back to KOMA.

    I'd gladly listen to a good AM over a crappy FM any day. And I'd welcome a new country station IF it had something better to offer than what's on the air now. Today's radio, especially country music, is mediocre at best. In my opinion. But what do I know? I'm just a cameltoe.

    Do you think OKC will be able to support four country stations? I know its a popular format here, but it has failed when attempted before. Remember 104.9 The Bull? That should have been a smash success thanks to its red dirt lean, but it was a flop. I think this new classic country station will either be a success and force one of the others to flip, or it will flop. I doubt all four will still be on the air a year from now.

    All joking and sarcasm aside, I honestly believe that four country stations would be a bad idea. But...if someone came in with a powerhouse country station, I have no doubt that it would greatly affect the other country stations, and we would see some major changes. Bchristi, you make an excellent point in regards to the bull. I had completely forgotten about them until you mentioned it. And red dirt, well, that seems like more of an intangible gimmick to me.

    If a really good classic country station were to come along, I think that kxy would be in a panic. And I would love to see that happen. Some competition might clean up the mediocre radio in town. And if kxy were to flip to a different format altogether, that wouldn't hurt my feelings either. But when you have a large company with lots of resources like (unsaid broadcast company), they will pull every rabbit out of their corrupt hat to make sure that the competition doesn't survive.

    I believe that 1640 might have a fighting chance doing oldies IF they decided to do real oldies, not True Oldies. Granted, sales would be to mainly retirement-age targeted folks, but it could be done. Trying to fight KOMA with an AM just isn't going to work. Their only real option with oldies is to go with a older approach. Chances are that won't be happening.

    Well after over an hour of low levels and stumbling around it seems Hanky-FM has "graced" the airwaves. So far, nothing but ag crap still on 1640 (It's not like many people are going to bother to switch over there anyway.) Just what OKC was waiting for! More country. Yehaw.
