KOOL102FM and 1280AM puts your favorite music at your fingertips. Music from when the world was safe and life was fun! Filled with drive-ins, school dances, and woodsies! We were cruisin’ the main drag and wishing we had our very own Fender guitars! We put a man on the moon and had peace, love, Dick Clark’s American Bandstand, and rock ’n’ roll! “The pill,” Bonanza, and political unrest played out against the hit music of The Beatles, The Mamas & the Papas, Elvis Presley, Frankie Valli & The 4 Seasons, The Rolling Stones, Herman’s Hermits, Diana Ross & The Supremes, and many, many more!
Aptly enough Las Vegas’s only oldies radio station was launched in 1956 under the call letters KVOV-AM. Over the years various other call letters and formats appeared at our spot on the dial. KREL-AM, KDOL-AM, KDOX-AM. At one point it was even a Spanish language station! But on December 31, 2010, it changed call letters one last time to KQLL-AM, and the format centered on hit music of the ’50s, ’60s, 70’s and Motown. Today it is owned and operated by Summit Media, Inc. and longtime broadcaster, Scott Gentry. It still exists and is Southern Nevada’s only OLDIES station.
KOOL102FM/1280AM is one of the very few area radio stations heard on both the AM and the FM side of the dial. It enjoys the largest reach of any Las Vegas-based radio station and can be heard from the California state line to St. George, Utah. It has a massive regional signal reaching millions of listeners every day. Do-wah-ditty-ditty-ditty-dum-ditty-do!
