Vanished radio frequency

What has happened to my favorite radio frequency all of a sudden? I loved listening to KCSN-FM 88.5 generated from Cal State Northridge and now all I get is static. Why?

Even on the car radio 88.5 does not come in clearly. I love bluegrass music, which is featured on 88.5 on the weekends - also the Beatles' music.

Thank heavens we have 1220, but that could change again also. At one time we had a disgusting talk show and now we have good music, local sports and the old radio programs such as Jack Benny, etc. A big improvement, I must add.

When I first moved to this valley there was '40s, '50s and '60s music, but now it can not be found. I love driving north to visit my brothers, one in Kingsburg (King's radio) the other in Los Banos (music out of Fresno).

So I have my radio programmed so that when one fades out I merely press a button and the other takes over. These stations play '40s, '50s and '60s music.

But please, I need to know what has happened to 88.5.

Online Editor's note: We're on the fringes of KSCN's service area, which is why the signal is often sketchy. If you have a computer and Internet access, you can listen online at
