That is about to change, according to Robert Pilpot at the Star-Telegram. On Friday, station owner Crawford Broadcasting announced on the Legends KAAM Radio Facebook page that, as of June 5, the station will change its format to Christian talk.
You can still get KAAM’s nostalgia format — just not on terrestrial radio.
“The good news is that we will continue to air Legends online, on the internet, at KAAMRadio.com so that you may listen to all of the Legends music from home and in your car via your cellphone,” says the post, which is signed by Crawford Broadcasting’s president, Don Crawford Jr. “Most of your favorite talk programs will remain on AM770, some moving to different times, some staying right where they have been for years. Just not the music.”

KAAM went off the air for a while, but a team of investors who resurrected the station in 1995 at 620 AM, according to Star-Telegram archives. The station was briefly off the air again in 1998, when Radio Disney took over the 620 AM frequency, and was revived again the next year at its current home, 770 AM. The KAAM call letters were assigned to the station on Oct. 18, 1999. Over the years, the station began adding rock and pop oldies to the “standards” format.
