    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.

    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.

    Re: channel Q105.1

    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.
