These issues could still take years to resolve, and ultimately prevent KAHM becoming a Phoenix rimshot, which is why I would assume CCF would want it in the first place.
    KAHM's sales price is based solely upon becoming a rimshot. The Nurse and I have reason to believe both the Buyer and Seller are willing to let this play out a little longer. CCF bought a commercial AM & translator in the Valley, and appears to be doing pretty well. So what's the rush?

    I would not want to get involved in a forced marriage with Kemp, this whole thing seems very strange. Maybe CCF can buy out Kemp's interest in KVGG and make the whole thing go away.
    He put far too much into getting the license for KVGG to be a reasonable seller. He's also aware that in spite of CCF being non-profit, they have deep pockets.


    In my fantasy world as a financially independent owner, I would try to buy KVGG from Kemp, move KAHM south, put smooth jazz on the main channel and BM on an HD2 with a translator (and probably not make much money).
    In our fantasy world, Nurse Jeff and I would put our Gremlin in the elevator of the Wells Fargo Tower in Vegas and send it to Kemp's 17th floor office. Bet he'd come to the bargaining table real fast!

    Consummation Notice filed, so KAHM is officially owned by the Cesar Chavez Foundation. Guess they'll be dealing with KVGG and the move to Towers Mtn by themselves. And the Elevator Music?....hmmmm, don't know. But Nurse Jeff and I keep hearing this "tick-tock" sound when we tune to 102~One on the Gremlin's radio.

    Things were still "Calm" in Prescott this morning... Fri. 1/19. Heard the British lady and everything sounded the same. I do wonder how long it will go on......

    I think they should stunt with disco or rock just to get the folks moving. Are they going to run those funeral parlor and retiree financial planning ads with the new format?

    As for KVGG, good luck with that -

    Just as when a station I worked for switched from rhythmic CHR to classic country, stunting isn't really necessary. Just as segueing from 'Back That Azz Up" to David Allen Coe accomplished, you don't need to go through extraordinary measures to tell the audience that things are different now. We just faded out Juvenile, hit the legal and the promo explaining the format, and then "It was all... that I could do... to keep from crying..."

    Since there isn't any real tactical advantage of keeping things a secret here - it's not like Univision and Entravision don't know what's coming - I would expect KAHM to make a graceful exit and let the staff say goodbye prior to the flip.

    Wait a minute...you didn't mention mama, or trains, or trucks, or prison, or getting drunk!


    Meanwhile, the new owners have imprinted their brand on KAHM and co-owned KYCA's web page. Phoenix Radio Broadcasting is owned by CCF. Won't be long now.

    Well mama was drunk, the day her station changed its format...

    Here's how Steve Goodman handled it:

    Well, I was drunk the day my mom got out of prison
    And I went to pick her up in the rain
    But before I could get to the station in my pickup truck
    She got run over by a damned old train

    Local Prescott resident and KAHM super celebrity, Viktoria Taylor had a book
    signing at a local Prescott business. There were several hundred people waiting
    to meet her and purchase a copy of her fast selling book, "Radio, the fact, the
    fiction and the misinformation."

    KVGG, your new home for elevator music (two days of the year) and static (the rest of the year)!
