  1. I didn’t know you guys had changed your formats for those of us in the Mineral Wells/Weatherford listening area. Good for you. I mainly like rock and roll but 88.5 is a refreshing change. Of course, I’m just like nearly everybody else as far as I’m willing to go who says that they really like all kinds of music, which really means r&r and country, so 89.5 is a brilliant move in my mind. Just keep it fresh.

    • Thanks for the kind words Miguel! We will be continually adding music to 89.5. Probably not rap and heavy metal, but if it was a number one hit… You’ll probably hear it. The library has over 4000 songs, so I hope you hear lots that will bring back some great memories and some newer stuff to create new memories with. Again thanks for taking the time to comment. We are still running low power while trying to get antenna and tower repairs completed from recent storms. Keep listening!

    • We just did not have enough personnel or financial support to continue even though it is by far my favorite format. I hope in the very near future, I will get a chance to bring it back stronger than ever!

    • Ivan, We really miss having them on the station too. Unlike most radio stations, it is VERY labor intensive for us. Being a non-commercial station, the FCC regulates the sponsors we can air. Because the Rangers’ have live reads during the program, we have to have someone at the station (where other stations play them via tones- no station personnel is there) to cover those “commercials”. Finding people to come to work is almost impossible! You’d think that would not be the case, but it is. Thanks for listening though!

  2. So, is kqxe 91,1 Ur station too????? I love it!!!!!!!! How long has it been this format???? I also hear it better than your other stations down here in Bluff Dale!!!

  3. Just want to say that I listen in California on Radio-Garden on the net. I love your format! So very tired of the typical stations we have here. Thank you for being unique!!!

  4. Why did the program on 06/30/17, on 89.5, about 6:30-7:15 pm say it was Pure Country? Really old-fashioned country music. What happened to Chuck FM?

    • Good morning B.A.
      We had to move/change some frequencies around in order to satisfy our FCC licenses. You can hear Chuck FM (Chuck’s favorite songs) on 88.5FM. The actual 89.5 frequency is now out of Stephenville and the station there was a classic country station. As all things in this world seem to financially struggle, part of the switch was due to economical constraints. The lightning strike that took out out tower/equipment two years ago also did some major damage to our family’s funds and station sponsorships have not increased and in fact have dwindled. We have done what we need to do to try and keep the signals on the air and in local hands instead of big corporate conglomerates. I hope you will continue to listen to ChuckFM on the 88.5 frequency and/or on our internet streaming. Maybe even visit a sponsor or two and tell them that you appreciate their support of the station so that maybe we can continue to provide the music you love.

  5. I am a loyal listener of keqx 89.7. When it changed hands and went to 89.5 July 1st, signal is much weaker in Glen Rose, TX. Much harder to lock in. Volume is way below all other fm stations have to crank the volume way up and sound is flat like an am signal.

    Why???

    Format has not changed I’m very grateful for that

    Thank you?
    Chris

    • First Chris, let me say, thank you for being a loyal listener! Many things have happened in the last month. First we got a call from Mr. Upshaw mid-June that the station would be going dark as of June 30 because he could not keep it going due to finances. In the following two weeks, we had to scramble to get music loaded and into schedulers as well as get our studio signal from us to the tower. In doing so, we do not have a stereo link in stock and expected it to be here from the Upshaw’s within a short amount of time. That is apparently not going to happen. Sooo we are running the format on a mono STL and it will remain that way until we can purchase a new piece of equipment. The transmitter and antenna are exactly as they were before the switch to 89.5. The frequency change is totally separate from the sound issue. (Neither explains the weaker signal). I will let our technical folks know and we will see what we can do about that. Unfortunately we still have LOTS to do to get the station back to where it should be. Please be patient and again… we do thank you for being a loyal listener.

      • I am just grateful that y’all decided to run this format on such short notice. God Bless and I’m looking forward to the changes.

  6. Can we as listeners contribute toward a stereo link? What does it cost?
    Where do we mail checks?

    Thanks,
    Chris

  7. Cost will run us somewhere between $3000-$6000 depending on whether we have to buy only one side of the link or both and whether we can find a used one or have to purchase new. Hopefully by next week our new website will be up which has a Gofundme link to simplify contributions. Until then you can go to Gofundme and search wearepurecountry and that should get you to the right place. Otherwise checks can be mailed to CSSI Non Profit Broadcasting, 905 Palo Pinto St, Weatherford, TX 76086. Hopefully all “the little things” will fall into place within the next month or so.

  8. I’m glad you continued the Pure Country broadcast. It is so nice to be able to hear musical music, or as some call it “old-fashioned country”, instead of this twanged up rock they call country these days or the pop cross-over junk from the 70’s & 80’s that all the iHeart radio “country” stations play. With all the wonderfully pretty songs that exist, whether they were a “hit” at the time or not, it is a shame that no one plays them because they are “old”. There is “classic country” genre stuff that is more modern and you guys seem to work in a bunch of that. I’m listening to Radney Foster “Just Call Me Lonesome” right now. Remember KTFW 12 to 15 years ago, before they got taken over and started playing Dolly Parton, Kenny Rogers, Ann Murray, etc and went in the toilet?

    • Thanks for listening. We are really working to keep the Pure Country format going. I can honestly say… it is expensive to do so. Any help you can provide…Financial donation or just words of encouragement ALL HELP. Please let sponsors know that you appreciate them helping keep us on the air.
