Listener Comments and Reviews

KIKO 97.3 is now "Funny 97.3" and it airs programming from 24/7 Comedy network. The programming consist of 3 or 4 minutes of comedy bits taken from a standup routine. The station is good to turn on when all the others are airing commercials. This channel doesn't seem to air much advertising right now.

I like the oldies that are now on 97.3 KIKO. A different mix than 94.5 KOOL.

Probably the best rock oldies station in the Phoenix area. No screaming dealer advertisements just a lot of good music. I wish you could broadcast at a higher strength so I could pick you up anywhere in the valley. Keep doing what you're doing! Thanks.

We are attempting to reach the Owner and/or Engineer for the 97.3 signal as they are severely interfering with our audio and also on our neighbor 99.1FM. We have received just over 15 complaints in the past 7 days. We have attempted to contact the station phone number but there is no answer. I DO KNOW that the FCC will answer our call but will continue to contact KIKO for another day or two until we have to address this interference issue caused by the 97.3 transmission.

Why aren’t we able to get your station anymore in Arizona City? Did you move to another station?

Volume is slow low compared to other Phoenix stations. When moving around the dial have to turn KIKO way up to hear it and then back down when turning to other stations.

I love the oldies that I used to enjoy out here when I was living in Phoenix in 63-64. I really wish you could get an app to download so I can use it on my iPhone. I now live in Arizona City after being absent from Arizona for 56 years and I'm finally home! Keep the sweet tunes coming, please?!

This station's microwave or satellite dish is off a bit and causes the signal to drop out a bunch lately.

We live in Casa Grande and cannot pick up your station. Are you still operating?
By: Mish on April 9, 2021

I don't think the owner cares about this station. Doing nothing to get it back on.

Music got interrupted by a "Breakaway One" notification they didn't pay for the license. Are things that rough for KIKO?
By: Gail on July 16, 2021

Still some occasional drops of the signal for half a second or so.

Audio quality has gotten really bad. The bitrate of the audio is really low and it at least one song was in mono. I just don't know with this station... so oddly run.

They recently changed their library and now play songs that they didn't before. One new song to the playlist is Mambo number 5. They really stands out like a sore thumb. In addition to the change in library was a huge drop in audio quality. If they fix the audio and drop Mambo number 5 I would probably listen more.
