KCKN has been a real good change from the music stations I'm used to.

But anyway...

Also, here are some places where you'll find classic country played in Texas for those of you not from around here. I don't have all of the stations, but these are the ones I know of.

KTFW (92.1) - Glen Rose, TX
KRBL (105.7) - Idalou - Lubbock, TX
KOLI (94.9) - Electra - Wichita Falls, TX
KTHT (97.1) - Houston
KKYX (AM 680) - San Antonio
KYYW (AM 1470) - Abilene, TX


And on a couple of mainstream country stations, you can also get a show that features classic country:

KILT (100.3) - Houston (Sunday nights at 7)
KVET (98.1) - Austin (Saturday mornings at 5)


So, whenever you travel, you may want to take this guide with you. They'll be out there.

Nice! When I visited the Dallas area a few years back I heard a pretty good country/western station from Fort Worth called "The Texas Twister", do you have any idea what that station is?

That used to be on 96.7. It wasn't really classic country, though. The station has long since changed its format.

Ah man, that was part of my whole first visit to Texas experience!

I am actually listing to KTFW right now, it is pretty good, has much of the same format and similar personalities as KCKN in Roswell, NM.

Is it me or is it that Classic Country stations are starting to die out? Or is that just where I live that's the problem with the format?

I love so much of that older country. I'd all but given up on country until I got a satellite radio and hallelujah, I find they're STILL making good country music. Full disclosure, I hate Shania Twain/Carrie Underwood style pop country, and around here that's ALL you're going to hear on regular radio.
