Hot Rod Radio

KXDL FM first signed on in May 1992 with an Oldies Radio format. This format has since evolved into Classic Hits format, a contemporary version of the traditional oldies format. We play the best of pop, soul, and rock n' roll from the mid to late `60s, the `70s, and the early to mid `80s. If we’re not playin’ it, it wasn’t a hit! Hot Rod Radio plays feel-good music, songs you can sing along to, 24/7. We also mix in local news, weather, sports and area information, to help keep our listeners connected and informed.

Hometown Radio

KEYL AM first the air on September 15, 1959 in Long Prairie. KEYL AM 1400 plays Real Country! Hometown Radio KEYL’s music combines older Country hits with newer songs by traditional-sounding Country artists. We also mix in local news, weather, sports and area information, to help keep our listeners connected and informed. In addition to local news, weather, local sports and information, Hometown Radio KEYL also broadcasts 14 agricultural news programs everyday, Monday through Friday from Brownfield Ag. Brownfield Ag News and Information, broadcast on KEYL, helps keep the area farmers informed of market prices, ag innovations and ag related subjects, on the international, national and state levels.
