KPOV has a new line-up for your Sunday night. We are bringing on a new syndicated show, called 60 Watts. It’s an underground and alternative hard rock show, to expand your horizons or boost your energy. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
KPOV is also moving Geezer Rock from Sunday at 11:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., so you geezers can get to bed an hour earlier, if you aren’t hooked on 60 Watts.
