I just found the smooth Jazz station after it was flipped to am and not fm I missed my Smooth JaZZZ AND NOW THIS A.M. ITS OFF THE AIR.
Why? and now where do i go
By: Sandra LeVell on May 6, 2011
It was unbelievable to have lost FM Smooth Jazz last year! Fortunately, we now have AM 1400 but the station doesn't play on a $19.99 quality type Radio. We had to spend the money and get a good radio.
I am Hispanic, was born in Los Angeles, and speak fluent Spanish. I'm surprised, to put it lightly, to now hear commercials in Spanish. It's my personal opinion as a Hispanic that I don't care to hear advertising in any foreign language. You don't ever hear Spanish/foreign language advertising on Jazz stations in Los Angeles, San Diego or Phoenix, as examples.
Commercials in English are annoying enough. People don't enjoy hearing jibberish in between the music.
Thanks for listening.

I am very glad to see Smooth Jazz back in Reno. I hope your future plans call for live summer jazz concerts similar to the old station's format as well as sponsoring the Friday night golf tourney's. But most of all I am thakfull that Jazz will remain in Reno.

Can we listen online, if not when?

I was so angry when we lost the FM Smooth Jazz Station last year. I just couldn't believe they moved a Country Western Station in its place. There was only one Jazz Station and I do believe FM lost a lot of listeners because of it. I was so excited when I walked into Meadowood Mall today and saw a sign advertizing Smooth Jazz 1400. It is now marked as my favorite on my radio in my car. My husband will do the same in his truck. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. You have made my day. I will spread the word.

Thank you so much for bringing Smooth Jazz 1400 AM to the Reno/Sparks area. I found the station today as I drove home from work - I was ecstatic!! It was a horrible day when I tuned to 92.1 FM and heard country western music. I hope to hear 1400 AM in businesses throughout the area. Thanks again - my ears thank you, too.
By: Cindy Smith on September 8, 2011
Great to read all of the positive comments. Thank you everybody. We would like to clarify that the format is being presented under what is called in the broadcast industry a Time Brokerage Agreement (TBA). Comments, thanks, or questions should be directed to email@example.com and not to Flinn Broadcasting.

Looking for a song I heard today, 10-21-11, with the works only have eyes for you.
By: Rickey Boucher on October 22, 2011
I have been a smooth jazz listener for many years and attended many of the sponsored concerts over the years. I have always listened to smooth jazz on my way to work, and was quite surprised perturbed to find a country and western station at the 92.1 FM setting. I'm glad Smooth Jazz is back. I hope that an eventual return to a FM format is planned , since the AM broadcast is somewhat flat in sound quality.

thx GOD the real deal like the coke-cola of good music of sweet sound's is back on the air for all of us thank you so much for freeing my soul and mind.
By: Dave on November 28, 2011
Since finding smooth jazz, I have become a regular listener. This is in the way of a freindly suggestion. It would be a nice touch if you would find a way to offer the time of day throughout the program. Thanks and keep up the good music.

What has happened to your radio station? We lost you over a week ago and cannot get you on any radio I have. Please keep this on the air as we really enjoy it here at work

I'm getting crabbier by the day - I wasn't sure if my mood had anything to do with my meds; now I realize I'm in withdrawal from lack of Smooooooth Jazz - what's up with this? I feel just awful - quick, I need a fix!!!!!!
By: Paddy J on March 20, 2012
Hey what happened to you, Im missing smooth jazz.....
By: william on March 21, 2012
We once had smooth jazz on FM, then it went away. Then we got smooth jazz on AM, now it is gone. A lot of us here in Carson Valley love the format of smooth jazz. Please get back on the air (FM)....
By: Bill on April 13, 2012
Hi Mr. Flinn, I have really enjoyed listening to the Smooth Jazz that the station plays - HOWEVER - I want to know what is happening??? You have been off the air for several weeks & no one seems to know when you will be back...I'm concerned that you won't be back. That would be a dis-service to your listening audience. The main reason - I love RnR, but after listening to the stations around here play the same classic rock day after day - PLEASE save my sanity!!!!!

Nevada Coalitions Director
Convention of States
Mark Meckler President of Citizens for Self-Governance and Convention of States to Speak in Reno Town Hall
Learn How Citizen Volunteers Using Article V of the Constitution will re-establish States Rights and Return the Power to the People
Reno, Nevada September 4, 2014 The Air Port Plaza Hotel located on Terminal Way in Reno will host a Town Hall Meeting open to the public on September 4, 2014 from 7:00 to 9:00 pm. Mark Meckler will deliver a 30-45 minute presentation titled: “TIME FOR A RADICAL RESPECTABLE REVOLUTION: AMERICA AT A CONSTITUTIONAL CROSSROADS”. The presentation will be followed by a robust question and answer session.
Our Founding Fathers foresaw the likelihood that the government in Washington, DC might someday become too centralized and overreach the limited powers granted it by the US Constitution.
Citizens for Self-Governance has launched the Convention of States Project to call an Article V convention of the States to propose only amendments that would impose restraints on the federal government, limit its power and jurisdiction and impose term limits on its officials and members of Congress.
Join other deeply concerned Nevadans and learn how everyday citizens by contacting our Nevada State Senators and Assemblymen can remind and embolden them that it is their Constitutional right and their Constitutional obligation as our duly elected direct representatives to stand up to Washington overreach through the use of Article V of our United States Constitution.
