Don Davis’ Vanguard Radio Center has launched 1100 KRKE Peralta/93.7 K229CL Albuquerque NM and is currently stunting with a ten minute loop of remixed clips of 1980s songs ahead of a new format launch on Friday, October 14 at 12pm.
Davis purchased the CP for a then new CP on 1120 AM on 1120 in July 2020 for $25,000. After a few modifications to the CP as well as the move of what is now 1080 KEMR Moriarty from 1090 in Milan NM, the AM signed-on in February simulcasting KEMR with 1kW daytime. The 93.7 translator previously rebroadcasted Rock of Talk LLC’s Conservative Talk 1600 KIVA Albuquerque.
The new format on KRKE/K229CL will join a Vanguard operation that includes Dance “96.7 Pirate Radio” KSFE Grants, Hip Hop “101.3 The Hustle” KYLZ Albuquerque, Regional Mexican “La Mexicana” 106.3 KXOT Los Lunas/95.9 K240EC Santa Fe, Smooth Jazz “103.7 The Oasis” 1510 KOAZ Isleta/103.7 K279BP Albuquerque, and Full Service AC “East Mountain Radio” 1080 KEMR/102.1 K271DC Moriarty,
