With the exception of KERA 90.1 and KNON 89.3, Dallas radio has been a cold, empty place, completely devoid of decent music since the George Gimarc days of KDGE 94.5. Now a bright shining star has made an appearance: KZPS “Lone Star” 92.5 has changed its format from Classic Rock to Americana/Root Rock. In just a short trip running errands today I heard Ryan Adams, Black Crowes (they play a lot of Crowes), and Slobberbone. Todd Snider gets a ton of play as well as does Son Volt, particularly tracks off of their recent release, The Search. What’s even more amazing to me is that this is a Clear Channel station. If you like alt-country or Americana, give them a listen.
