Daily Schedule

The first thing we want to announce is the update to our Daily Schedule. We have moved some programs around, to open up some more air time to bring you more live music from venues around the U.S. We will slowly be working to bring more and more 'Live Radio Remotes' each week. 'Live Radio Remotes' are Bands and Artists broadcasting their live performances (concerts) on Racketeer Radio KFQX, from venues across America. Our goal is to set out and give you, the listener, the oppurtunity to bring live music from the stage to you home, or work or car or garage, or wherever you may be. More details on our radio remote broadcasts as they are announced. You can always keep your eyes on our Events in the Radio Remote Concert Calendar

Additionally, Racketeer Radio KFQX has moved some programs around to make a complete weekly schedule, you can see our new updated Schedule to view all the changes. Shows like, 'Juke in the Back', 'Big Band Bash', 'Shaun Youngs' Record Vault Show' will all remain at the 4pm Pacific standard time on same day as previously before. Programs such as, 'History of Rock N Roll', 'Radium Hot Club', 'Memories in Melody' and 'Sounds of Sinatra' will move, two hours ahead, from Noon to 10 am Pacific Standard Time, as 'Hot off the Press' hosted by me, Ace Hartmann, where I will be bringing you the hottest and newest tunes daily beginning at Noon PST. We will be making these updates the labor day weekend (September 2-3) and will continue to make updates as needed.
