KUKQ Returns To Fill The Void Of Alternative Radio In Phoenix
March 23, 2012 at 12:57 PM (PT)
Nearly 20 years after its demise, KUKQ is back as an Internet station at KUKQ.com. The re-birth of KUKQ is to fill the void of alternative radio in the PHOENIX. The legendary AM alternative station was originally launched by JONATHAN L. in 1989 returns under the former staff from KEDJ (THE EDGE 103.9)/KEXX (X103.9)/PHOENIX.
KUKQ will rely on web, social media, apps, street marketing, listener input, interaction and texting campaigns to reach the alternative audience that has been left to less alternative radio choices in the PHOENIX market. KUKQ will be the new home of the legendary "SKA PUNK" show hosted by CRAVEN MOREHEAD. Former X103.9 night jock HAMMER will do afternoons on KUKQ.
Surprising absent from the re-launch of KUKQ is JONATHAN L, who broadcasts a weekly two-hour worldwide radio show, "LOPSIDED WORLD OF L" from his studio in BERLIN. He previously aired a popular weekly "VIRGIN VINYL" show on KUKQ among other stations.
JONATHAN L had this to say on his FACEBOOK page about the return of KUKQ:
"I wish the people all the best with the resurrection, but wish they had used THE EDGE call letters instead. KUKQ is a sacred animal."
