New Classic Rocker Rattles Into Suburban Phoenix
John Low’s 1TV.com launched Classic Rock “97.3 The Rattler” 1260 KBSZ Apache Junction/97.3 K247CF Mesa AZ on Monday.
KBSZ/K247CF had been Comedy “Funny 1260” until the end of May and had temporarily been simulcasting sister “Oldies 96.5” KIKO-FM Claypool. The new format is described as focusing on music from 1970-1990 with core artists including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Allman Brothers, Ted Nugent, and ZZ Top with deeper album cuts.
The stations serve the eastern side of the Phoenix market although the translator holds a CP to relocate to Phoenix’ South Mountain with a directional 99w/465m.
