Oldies are coming back to the Treasure Valley's AM airwaves.
Barring any unforeseen hitches, Ontario, Ore., AM country station "KSRV 1380 The Bull" will switch formats to "Oldies 1380" on Feb. 15 and spin music from the late '50s through early '70s.
The station is being purchased by local radio veteran Jack Armstrong, best known for his 14 years as the voice of now-defunct "Kool 104.3."
Armstrong will be joined at KSRV-AM by fellow broadcaster Dale Jefferies.
"Jack has formed the Armstrong Radio Group," according to a press release, "and has initiated the purchase of KSRV-AM in Ontario, Ore., from Impact Radio Group of Nampa, Idaho. The radio station will be operated by Armstrong beginning Feb. 1, 2013, under a Local Marketing Agreement with IRG while awaiting final approval of the FCC."
Big Jack expects to play his the first oldies tune at 3 p.m. Feb. 15.
Update: In other oldies news, familiar voice KJ Mac, who was let go at K-Hits as part of restructuring, will return to the airwaves Monday.
Mac will do the morning show from 6 to 10 a.m. weekdays at "Kool Oldies 99.5 FM."
