HD programming


KTGX broadcasts using HD Radio technology. The HD2 digital subchannel was originally called "Christmas 93.5" playing Christmas music. It was also simulcast on FM translator K228BR at 93.5 MHz.[2] It later became "93.5 Chrome FM" playing Oldies.

On November 3, 2017, KTGX-HD2 dropped its oldies format and returned to Christmas music, branded again as "Christmas 93.5".[3]

On January 24, 2018, "Christmas 93.5" was dropped and "93.5 The Jet" was launched with a classic rock format.[4]

Before KTGX launched on December 28, 2009, the station aired an oldies format, branded as "KOOL 106.1" with the call letters KQLL-FM. The format launched in 1990.

Before the launch of KOOL, the station aired an Adult Contemporary format as "Lite 106," and before that, broadcast hits from the 1960s and 1970s.

On October 30, 2009, at 6 a.m., KQLL-FM began stunting with all-Christmas music as "Christmas 106, Tulsa's Holiday Station."

At noon on December 28, 2009, KQLL-FM relaunched as 1990s Hits 106.1 Gen-X Radio with the first song being "Smells Like Teen Spirit" by Nirvana.

At 6 a.m. on July 3, 2012, KTGX began stunting first with all-Christmas music, followed by a loop of all-Bruce Springsteen, then a loop of the song "Boys From Oklahoma" by Cross Canadian Ragweed beginning at 9 a.m., and at 10 a.m., the audio of the film Twister, all punctuated with cryptic liners that a "twister" would hit the station "and it's coming... soon". At Noon, the station flipped to country, branded as "The Twister." The first song on "The Twister" was "Blown Away" by Carrie Underwood.
