More Talk, Fewer Grooves


Listeners of KBSU 730-AM will soon be hearing more talk and fewer horns.

Starting July 2, the station, which also airs on KEZJ 1450-AM in Twin Falls, will change its focus to talk radio and news, while scaling back its jazz offerings.

"There is so much great public radio news information programming, we just wanted to offer our listeners a choice," said John Hess, KBSU general manager.

Jazzworks will remain on the schedule from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. Monday through Friday, midnight to 6 a.m. on Saturday and midnight to 7 a.m. on Sunday. Jazz can also be heard on KBSU 90.3-FM from 8-11 p.m. Saturday.

News programming will run from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and Spanish language programs will air throughout the day Saturday. Student programming will continue to be featured on Sunday afternoons.

Of course, they say, you can still get a 24-hour, seven-days online stream of jazz from their Web site.

Some of the new treats for listeners include: Bob Edwards Weekend, The World, On Point and Here and Now.
