The previous Jazz/Blues format will continue online as the first in a suite of webcasters the station plans to launch.
Original Report 10/25: 1410 KRML Carmel CA, the station made famous for its inclusion in the 1971 Clint Eastwood movie “Play Misty For Me” has dropped its longtime Jazz/Blues format.
