So glad you carry "The Glenn Beck Program".
So glad you don't carry "The Clay & Buck Show". Their theme music alone is an automatic tune-out, turn off and poor substitute for Rush!
Recently completed a Nielson Radio Listener Survey and was happy to give KXEL good ratings. Wish you had an FM to simulcast programs on AM.
Reception in SE Iowa City is not good and subject to interference noise, but no problem with KXEL's website listening.

Please rate on a scale of 5
