  1. Las Vegas seems to be overloaded with too many Top 40s so this was meant to happen. As for KYLI welcoming KPLV listeners, they must know something and suspicious from the way they been running those liners.

  2. It looks like they’re aiming for a Rhythmic Top 40 direction, since the logo looks exactly like sister station KPTT/Denver.

    • And it will be, going back to 93.1 The Party per the station’s Instagram which Lance retweeted.

      • Yes, the “Party” is back! Last song as “My” was “Latch” by Disclosure, first song as “Party” was “G.D.F.R.” By Flo Rida. The playlist favors Rhythmic and Dance tracks save for a few Pop songs.


    Maybe they need to update their banner on their website so that it doesn’t outrightly mention one of their shows is being fed from a radio station in Miami?

  4. Still sounds Mainstream CHR as said, little more rhythmic and man did they turn up the pitch shifting.

    • Only time will tell if this “Party” will last with this direction. The playlist needs to be more focused on who they’re trying to cater to because at this rate they just gave the folks at 96.7, 97.5, 98.5, 104.3, and 106.9 a reason not to be worried about.
