KOQX Going Under

KOQX blues radio is no more. They tried to pay their bills through donations, but found little success. They decided their service “had no value to anyone,” but I can certainly dispute that. It’s a tough way to do business. I personally listen to many NP radio stations, and each needs listener support. Free Speech Radio News, one of my favorite news programs, has gone on hiatus for similar reasons. They could have done better in getting the message out. I wasn’t even aware that KOQX was taking donations. There’s a PayPal link on the bottom of their home page that I never saw before yesterday. They never mentioned it on their broadcast.

They seem dead set in this decision, but if you would like to appeal, they can be contacted by email at Take a moment to tell them their service is an asset, and dedicated blues radio is desired and enjoyed by many.
