Z-107.7 is Awesome!!! Gary for President!!

WOW! Now you guys can be heard from anywhere in the entire world! That's amazing. I use to listen every day while living in the high desert. Now, thanks to modern technology, I'm able to do the same 150 miles away here in Los Angeles.

Very cool. I will be listening.

Unique look into a small town radio

This is a chance to peer into the world of a big time operator in a small town reality. A parade of often strange and disturbing desert zombies call into a small town radio show to discuss the big issues that are pressing us all. Literally ten minutes are dedicated to discussing a dollar store. Another ten provide an insight into Wall Street movement. And much much more!
