Mountain Country


Mountain Country is just like a good country song. The three chords we're playing here at the station breakdown very  simply from KQSC:

Quality - The heart of the station is high-quality, authentic country music. We pride ourselves on playing the greatest variety of true Western talent from multiple eras. 

Service - We are more than a radio station. In focusing on local community, we put good will ahead of all else. We aim to support the people behind great philanthropies and organizations, and we believe in volunteering our time to help better our city. 

Community - We are locally owned and operated in Colorado Springs. We see Pikes Peak from our office windows, and we believe in putting our energy and affection into our community and neighbors. We are focused on local listeners, businesses, nonprofits and schools.
