Redding AM Joins Ranks Going Off The Air

1230 KLXR ReddingMichael Quinn took Adult Standards 1230 KLXR Redding CA off the air as the clock struck midnight on the New Year.

The station had featured a local morning show hosted by Jim ‘Jimbo’ Albertson and Sue McLain and took pride in being one of the first stations nationally to start the trend of going All-Christmas annually starting when Quinn purchased the station in 1999. The 1kW Class C AM failed to apply for an FM translator in the 2017 filing period.

In a farewell statement on Facebook Quinn wrote:

“It is with deep regret that KLXR will be leaving the air Sunday night at midnight. After close to 20 years this day was never planned or expected. Our faithful listeners, loyal advertisers and the exceptional Morning Show team of Jimbo and Sue are going to be missed. We kept the good music and the Christmas music alive and it is sad that no one else sees the benefit in that. To everyone that got enjoyment out of this station we thank you for your support. Mike”

    “We kept the good music and the Christmas music alive and it is sad that no one else sees the benefit in that.” As for the latter, seems to me that a lot of stations see the benefit in that. As for the former, times change and the market for adult standards is not what it was 30 years ago at the height of Music of Your Life. It sounds like Quinn refused to add rock oldies to the playlist and he paid for not doing it.
