It’s important to make sure you like our unique sound, feel we’re a good fit for your business and that you understand our target radio coverage area from Golden, Colorado.

I’ve been building successful radio brands here in Colorado, The Northern California Coast and The Eastern Seaboard since 1976 with one simple credo: make radio obvious, attractive, easy and satisfying.

The world is no longer just business as usual, but better business with a partner you can trust.

Hope to hear from you soon!

  1. I’m so glad to be able to stream 96.9 and Mike Casey from my home in Manitouwadge, Ontario, Canada. I have always been a fan of Mike Casey. You see, I have known him since he became one of my brother’s best friends around the tender age of 9 or 10.
    Now that I do volunteer work out of my home, I can stream 96.9 all the time and hear Mike and remember the great times we had when he would be hanging out our home.
    What a wonderful addition to your station. Thank you for giving me a place to go and enjoy the classics being played by such a wonderful young man.
