The Legend is Reborn.
The Largest On-Air Music Library
KWXY boasts the largest radio station music library West of the Mississippi.
With over 12,000 songs in a variety of analog and digital formats, it would take weeks and weeks to listen to them all, but we sure hope you'll try! We don't play all the songs all the time, but we do cycle in and out of rotation more than 100 new songs every week, so you'll never get tired of hearing the same songs over and over, or have to listen to Beyonce or Michael Bolton singing a Frank Sinatra song.
Real Talk. Without All the Yelling.
You told us you like listening to talk radio, but can't stand talk hosts that yell at you all day long on the old AM, like the Bloviating Blowhard and Shill Hannitty. So we've built an all-new talk station on our sister station. Tune to The New 99.1FM or 920AM KGX for authentic, compelling, interesting talk.
We call it Real Talk. Talk radio without all the fake outrage. Talk radio that doesn't insult your intelligence. This isn't your crazy Uncle Al's idea of talk radio.
Click the KGX logo to the left to visit The New 99.1FM or 920AM KGX website. Live & Better talk radio for the Desert.
KWXY began in the early '60's thanks to the persistence and hard work of our visionary founder, Glen Barnett. Glen built something unique to the desert; a radio station that was admired and imitated in cities around the nation.
The Sound of Elegance was born in 1964, and while it's gone through several gyrations and permutations over the decades, we're working hard to re-create the original sound and feel of KWXY, remaining true to the promise of Relaxing Music.
Special thanks to Roz & Ric Supple for realizing the value of the KWXY call letters and website url, and preserving them, even when others thought they should abandon them.
Now, this is real music... authentic music that you know and love. If you're more of a square than a mod, we think you'll enjoy the fresh, relaxing sound of 92.3 FM - KWXY.
Original Songs. Original Artists.
Tell Us, and We'll Tell Everyone.
If your non-profit group or organization has an upcoming event, we want to know about it. Tell us all about it, and we'll promote it for free on 92.3 FM KWXY.
Gather all the information - what, when, where, etc. - and when you're ready to submit it to us. Please provide at least 14-days notice, and tell us only about events happening in the desert, that you're not spending money advertising.
Find the KWXY Mobile app in the iTunes and Google Play stores. Simply search 'KWXY Radio' to locate it, or click the apropos logo above for the direct link to the app.

KWXY Mobile App
"Alexa, Play KWXY Radio..."

Weather Every Hour on KWXY
Jim Guy has been forecasting weather on TV and Radio for over 35-years. And now he's keeping an eye on the sky for us at our sister-station, Real Talk KGX. Jim's hourly forecasts can be heard weekdays on 92.3 FM KWXY.
Jim's the real deal; an actual AMS . He's been on-air in Seattle, Minneapolis, Fresno, Phoenix, etc. Now he's watching the weather exclusively for us from Broadcast Center for KGX and KWXY.
Unlike today's "social media", Radio is regulated by the FCC. Advertisers know who they're reaching when they advertise on local Radio. There's no Russian bots or fake accounts with local Radio, like you may have been paying to reach with Facebook advertising. And KWXY and KGX have never had a Facebook page. We've always known they collect and aggregate your information (they try to sell it to us). Plus, we think Zuckerberg is a smug, arrogant, little twit.
Radio: The Original Social Media
KWXY now with hourly local news updates, weekday mornings. KGX newsman Skip Essick has been at the helm of some noteable News-Talk radio stations including KMJ/Fresno, WOOD Radio/Grand Rapids, WHAS/Louisville and WJR/Detroit.
