Listener Comments and Reviews

Dear R&R, It takes a better person to admit a mistake than one who denys his/her error. You made a mistake....a big one. The latest Arbitron ratings show KWXY-AM as 14th in this market, and KDES tied for number 8. Why? KWXY-AM has a very poor signal, and terrible fidelity. KWXY-FM has been way ahead of either of those ratings for as many years as I can remember. Put KWXY back on its rightful FM carrier frequency, and move KDES somewhere else (to AM perhaps?) The public has spoken. Are you listening?

This is my favorite station! I keep it on in the house and in the car. And we have it on at work. My children love it when they come to visit and I believe have it on their computers. Keep up the good work, the music is great. Whenever you change personnel, we do miss them for awhile, but your new people are good and quickly fill in the gaps. Thanks.

I love listening on-line to the music of the beautiful Coachella Valley and the feeling it gives me while sitting at my desk here in rainy, drippy Olympia, Washington.

I am really sick of hearing Frank Sinatra morning, noon and night (and weekends) . If you are short of CDs, I have some old ones I'd be glad to donate. There are lots of other good singers out there -- let that old guy rest in peace.

big mistake moving to AM. impossible to keep my signal in the car so I gave up. Now I am forced to listen to regular radio trash, the usual top 40. horrible. Please return to FM so we can all enjoy listening again.

I heard that John O. works there. I remember him from Palm Springs many years ago when he attacked a woman co-worker of mine, kicking her in the head several times and severly injuring her. Gee what a great guy.

I heard that John O. got busted for trying to mount a 12-year old outside of a bike shop a few years ago. I wonder if he's on megan's list and has to register as a sex offender?

KWXY has re-launched and is back to its original format and at 1340 AM. No DJ's yet, and Don Wardell works at 107.3 "Maude FM". Hopefully they can woo him back to the original.

Back in my day, I had several of my hits played on KWXY regularly. Then one evening Jon O. came over to my home in the tennis club area and slid down my long bronze johnson.

KWXY is now back on FM, at 92.3. It’s a Palm Springs signal, so it doesn’t cover the valley, but it’s good to hear it back on the FM dial, as Mad FM is now playing Beyonce, Buble & Harry Connick.

Years ago when we lived in Sun City Palm Desert, KWXY was our station of choice, morning to night. When we moved to Long Beach, we deeply missed the mellow Sounds of the Desert! What joy, when I discovered I can hear you now on my computer! What a wonderful background to have surrounding me! I'll be tuning in often, and thanks for still being present and accounted for . . . we need you!

Where did you go? We miss the only station we listen to both at home and in the car. I even have the app on my phone so I'd never be without KWXY .
