History[edit]

1970-1981: KSWT-FM - K-Sweet "Easy Listening"[edit]

KSWT signed on in 1970 with easy listening.[1] The music all played from large 10-inch reels of tape. And the rest of the programming elements came from cart carousels within a Harris automation system. There was no "live" announcer in the early years.

1981-1995: KMAJ-FM - Magic 108[edit]

1995-present: KMAJ-FM - Majic 107.7[edit]

Each year, KMAJ plays Christmas music, 24/7 leading into the holiday. In 2013, it flipped earlier, starting it on the evening of the 15th, as the first station in Kansas to air the music during the holidays. In 2017 the station flipped on November 16th. [2]
