“We’re really excited about the music and programming updates we’re making on KMCS,” said station manager, Jim Elias. “So much so, we’re rebranding the station ’93.1 the Buzz – Everything That Rocks.’”

The station will continue to play many of the favorites you’ve heard for years but will also add artists like The Foo Fighters, Green Day, Greta Van Fleet, and the Black Keys.

In addition to some of the best rock music from the mid-70s to today, 93.1 the Buzz will introduce a daily lineup of radio shows and new personalities.

The Morning Buzz with Kevin Walker will air from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m., followed by Lee Foster from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. GUNZ plans to rock the afternoon show from 2 p.m.-7 p.m., and The Buzz After Hours rocks listeners from 7 p.m. to midnight.

93.1 the Buzz will feature these shows on the weekend. Saturday nights from 10 to midnight the Buzz will feature Scratch and Sniff – new music from hip-hop to rock to alternative to dubstep. On Sunday nights you’ll hear the Top 30 rock songs of the week with the LA Lloyd Rock 30 from 6-9 pm and then Eddie Trunk Rocks – a variety of classic rock and heavy metal plus artist interviews from 9-midnight.

“Not only will we have great music, but we’ll be creating tons of ways for listeners to win,” said Kevin Walker, Program Director and Morning Host. “Look for many new promotions, activities and prizes coming your way. It’s all about the Buzz!” 93.1 the Buzz officially took to the airwaves Monday morning, Dec. 9.

Muscatine and area rock and roll fans are invited to tune in, stay tuned and listen to the Buzz.
