LGBTQ Radio Station – Now Playing! Official Launch Dec 26
The all-new 106.5 FM KGAY radio has just launched in the Coachella Valley, serving the LGBTQ community!
It's a different kind of radio station because it is run by a non-profit organization: Qchella Media Corporation. Qchella Media is committed to strengthening and affirming the LGBTQ community in the Coachella Valley, providing a platform for the “Q-munity” to access the airwaves and on-demand programming. This new station is also powered by Gay Desert Guide for all the listings of gay-friendly businesses, events, and attractions in the desert! You can listen now on 106.5 FM or 1270 AM, visit Qchella KGAY 106.5 online, and be sure to “Like” Qchella Media on Facebook!
Also check out the new CV 104.3 FM, Coachella Valley's new home for smooth favorites, all day with a no-repeat workday from 9 to 5, featuring Fitz in the Morning and Patrick Evans (CBS Local 2 Chief Meteorologist and Host of Eye on the Desert) hosting afternoons. Listen on 104.3 FM, visit CV 104.3 online and “Like” CV 104.3 on Facebook too!
