A ‘Neon’ Noncomm Gets Some Desert Soul


Travel east of Sky Harbor International Airport and you’ll find not-so-sleepy Apache Junction, Ariz. Once a tiny town of the Ol’ West, today it’s booming as a Mesa-adjacent community that still retains its Cowboy feel, attracting tourists to Lost Dutchman State Park.

Here, a 2kw Class A operates as a non-comm infatuated with 1980s pop and rock hits. But, will that cease once the station’s sale is concluded?

The answer is very likely yes, given the buyer. And, it is a win for Blacks in the Valley of the Sun.
