A New Radio Station For Our Town

I am very pleased to report we have a new _all classical music_ radio station here in southeast Kansas. Actually, KOSU is licensed out of Ketchum, Oklahoma (more or less across the state line) from Coffeyville, KS but it has a _very good_ signal here in Independence.

It is at 107.5 FM, came on the air about a month ago, and largely plays classical music, 24/7, but also has some NPR programming. That leaves us now with _three_ good classical music stations here. In addition to the NPR stations in Tulsa (89.5 FM) and the station out of Pittsburg, KS (KRPS, 89.9 FM) we now have this third choice. The problem with 89.5 and 89.9 FM has been they are so far away from the Independence/Coffeyville area the only way to get a *good* signal listening to them is by attaching the cable line since they both get a free ride on the CableOne local system. But the new one, 107.5 booms in with no antenna at all, it seems.

And where Pittsburg plays classical all day, along with BBC World Service overnight, and the Tulsa staton (89.5) tends to do mostly NPR with a smattering of classical music, the new people at 107.5 do classical all the time _day and night_ except for a few NPR things. I do not know for sure if we are the only radio market in the USA which now has _three_ stations doing classical music for many hours of the day, but I suspect we are. That does not count the two classical stations on cable only, which give us a rather good diet of intelligent, interesting music. Do you know of any other areas with three classical music stations all on the dial? New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, etc?
