Why only 3 stars… for the only local “Classical music” station? I was spoiled by the “Classical music” XM advertisement free, radio station, beginning in 2009 when I bought my FJ that came with an XM subscription. I even got a transmitter to broadcast on a radio in my house with a second subscription. The sound was great, and at that time reception for KPAC was very poor (I live on the edge of their broadcast area). The XM cost was minimal… around $60 per year.
KPAC relentlessly begs for money, and there are plenty of constant “advertisements” for their “sponsors”. I’d really rather pay a subscription fee and not listen to the constant begging. Now that I have Starlink, I can get a clear reception of KPAC. Unfortunately, XM became party to all the “Woke Agenda” and pushed it down your throat to the point that I couldn’t tolerate it anymore. KPAC is now beginning to show some of the same, with cultural/political propaganda… which has no place in a station “devoted” to “Classical Music”.

I began listening to KPAC in 1994 while driving to college. The radio in the old truck I drove to school each day would only pick up 88.3 clearly. Slowly I acquired a taste for it, and have been a loyal listener since. It is now my constant companion. Thanks to everyone working to make KPAC such a success!

Station of choice for classical music.

I LOVE KPAC. I have been a listener for decades. I listen to it online while quilting at my home in Evergreen, Colorado. It is much better than the local classical station. I really enjoy the variety of music: baroque, classical, impressionistic, romantic, movie soundtracks, 20th and 21st century composers, "South of the Border Latin and South American composers. Your selection of local and Texas concerts brings such beautiful new music. Thank you KPAC. Keep up the good work!

I give it starts because it's the only place for classical music. I give it two stars only because they never play Christmas or Easter music or any religious seasonal music. Maybe once a day they'll do one piece. It is very offensive to ignore Christians during this holiday. Another reason for the low rating is that they tend to cater to the case of the few that know classical music well so they look for off-the-beaten-path composers.

Please rate on a scale of 5
