  1. About time that KONO AM returned to it’s oldies roots. Ever since i was a kid kono was the place that played the coolest oldies. But up till 2 years ago kono had oldies on AM as well. I knew from the start that their sports talk format wouldn’t last. But for those who don’t know they now play 60s, 70, and crusing classic oldies. Keep oldies alive.
