Listen Live!Listen to Americas Country!

Coming up…

Hey friends! I wanted to post a few items of business coming up in the next little bit. Starting in October, I will be starting to mix in some Halloween music. This will be music that isn’t Country, but is appropriate for the Season. You’ll hear great tunes like Ghostbusters, Thriller and Monster Mash. I know there are some of you die-hard fans that may find it difficult to bear such a burden. Rest assured, it will only be 1-2 songs per hour. In the past, I’ve also programmed a special day of all Halloween music and a live show on Halloween night. Due to other previous commitments, I will not be able to do this. However, I will be able to continue the tradition of playing the original broadcast of the War of the Worlds from 1948! This will be played, in it’s entirety at 8pm Mountain. Pretty exciting stuff!

The next item is our 100% Christmas music that begins the day after Thanksgiving. On November 25th, we go all Christmas! This is a long-held tradition on this station, for years before we became America’s Country. Since we are a Country station now, we will try to have more Christmas songs performed by Country performers. We also only play 2 station IDs per hour, this means very low interruption so you can play our station in your homes or your businesses and it will create a wonderful soundtrack for the Holiday Season. Christmas music will go all the way up to New Year’s Eve. Of course, we will be commercial-free so why would you listen to anything else?

I’m really excited for the coming months here at America’s Country! Keep your eyes peeled as we will for sure have more info and details as things get closer. Thank you for listening and sticking with America’s Country!

Christmas Music Update

Merry Christmas!
Merry Christmas!
Happy Holidays from the New KXRT! I created the playlist for Thanksgiving and included 2 Christmas songs per hour for your holiday! This should help get the Holiday Spirit charged up in your homes. At midnight, on Black Friday, our 24/7 Christmas Music Extravaganza begins! You will be delighted, inspired and perhaps even wonder where that song came from! Our main goal is to make your All Christmas station stand out and be different than any other radio, satellite or internet station. You will hear all your traditional favorites, but you will be surprised with songs that are performed by folks that you may have never heard of or knew they did any Christmas songs. We also throw in plenty of silly songs that may inspire your eyebrow to raise on its own.

We look forward to entertaining you and your friends and family this Christmas Season! Do them a favor and let them know how to listen.

Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas!
