When I came to KBAQ I was already a fan of the legends like Hank and Cash and Willie and I'm always on the hunt for any new acts that can echo that aesthetic,”

“I'm trying to not have it sound like every other country radio station on the dial. When I came to 107.5 Outlaw Country KBAQ I was already a fan of the legends like Hank and Cash and Willie and I'm always on the hunt for any new acts that can echo that aesthetic,” says Chris Diestler. “If you want to hear only country music Top 40 then this isn't the station for that. We do play Top 40, but we try to mix in a lot of other styles. We mix it up. I’m carving out a unique identify for ours station. I want to sound distinct. When people see me wearing my Outlaw jacket, it's a badge of honor. I've been active to make it different but in a cool of way as possible.”
