Sinclair Telecable’s Wine Country Radio flipped “Classical 95.5” K238AF Santa Rosa CA/KSXY-HD2 to Spanish CHR “Latino 95.5” on Friday, September 2.

KXTS Program Director Eric Dullaart adds those duties for K238AF. The previous Classical format had debuted in October 2015 in place of Soft Oldies “Vintage 95.5“.

Funny1060.com for Classic Country 1060 CKMX Calgary, AB Funny1150.com for Oldies 1150 CKOC Hamilton, ON Funny1260.com for Sports “Team 1260” CFRN Edmonton, AB.
