KKRD debuts online today

WICHITA – Matt Johnston enjoyed KKRD, 107.3-FM, as a young adult, and now the 36-year-old owns the new online radio station KKRDonline.com.

Clear Channel Radio used to have the KKRD license.

“They have let it lapse for five years,” Johnston says. “I bought all the domains that were connected to KKRD.”

The station is strictly online and isn’t connected to 107.3 anymore.

“That’s the station that we all listened to as we were growing up,” Johnston says of Wichitans around his age.

He’ll play music from the ’90s and some from today. The station officially debuts at 5 p.m. with a party at Club Fuzion in Old Town.

You can also catch music by Johnston, who often performs at the Candle Club and has Sound Advice, which has 65 karaoke shows a week around the city.
