    Re: channel Q105.1

    ClearChannel, which owns about 7 stations in Des Moines and Ames, flipped both 105.1 and 106.3. 105.1 is now contemporary and 106.3 is alternative. So head up the dial to 106.3.

    Re: channel Q105.1

    I'm not sure either why they flipped them.

    Anyone remember way back when when 105.1 (now 106.3) was 107.1 and 107.5 was alternative?

    Not entirely sure....but I assume 106.3 was hitting too close to home to the big dog 107.5 in song selection/programming and they wanted different audiences for both. Just my hypothesis.

    Get satellite radio. You'll wonder why you tolerated those stupid commercials for so long.

    I remember when 107.5 went on the air. I think it was "the dot" or "the point" or something.

    This may explain why Tarbox left earlier this year.

    Its a giant ripoff though unless you threaten to cancel every 6-12 months. $160 a year plus fees? Yeah no.
