KNIX-FM - K247AC Info

Buck Owens experiences phenomenal success, selling over one million albums annually during this period. He has 26 straight #1 country hits. Owens parlays his success into business ventures. He invests in real estate, forms a publishing company, gets involved in talent promotion and buys radio stations in Bakersfield, California and ... See more in his childhood home of Arizona. Buck Owens publishes his Pledge to Country Music in Music City News: I shall sing no song that is not a country song. I shall make no record that is not a country record. I refuse to be known as anything but a country singer. I am proud to be associated with country music. Country music and country music fans have made me what I am today...I shall not forget it. Buck Owens paints his guitar red, white, and blue as a statement of patriotism at the time when he is touring overseas and performing at high-visibility events, including Lyndon B. Johnson's White House. Owens buys KYND - AM, a small daytime radio station in Tempe, Arizona, for $350,000. Located in a converted Sizzler Steak House in Hayden Plaza, the station broadcasts middle-of-the-road pop music. Owens converts the programming to country and changes the call letters to KTUF. The station has 14 full and part-time employees, housed in 500 square feet of communal office and production space. Owens buys another station in the Valley -- this time FM, which sets him back $ 75,000. This one he calls KNIX (the NIX from PhoeNIX). Again, he immediately initiates a country format -- “the only thing I knew anything about." KNIX-FM at the frequency of 102.5 goes on the air on August 27, 1968. KNIX takes over the frequency of a classical music station. KNIX calls the format “America’s Music”. Still true today. For years KTUF and KNIX operate out of a shanty near the Salt River bed. Employees travel down a dirt road to get to work. Administrative staff, disk jockeys, and sales staff are located in one big room. They battle for the use of phone lines. The 50,000 - watt transmitter is located just outside the back door.
