As 99.7 KQUA nears a year old, much progress has been made in developing and airing unique content. At the moment, 99.7 KQUA has 5 weekend specialty programs; 4 of which are locally produced and topics range from environmental talk to unique music programming. Other shows are in development.


What’s up Douglas County” kicks off the weekend with interviews with local businesses and non-profits with a focus on events and news in our area. The show originally airs at 8 am Saturday mornings with a replay Sunday morning at 8 am.


Conservation Today” hosted by Francis Eatherington is a bi-weekly environmental interview program 9am Saturday and Sunday. Francis interviews local environmentalists, conservationists and more.


Our longest running talk program is “Radio Active Restoration” hosted by Stan Petrowski and airs every Saturday and Sunday at 10 am. The show is an environmental talk program that often addresses river restoration.


Neon Wilderness” is the first of two specialty music programs that airs on 99.7 KQUA every Saturday night at 10 pm. Local business owner, Eric Yo, invites DJ’s from Douglas County and from around the country to spin an hour of electronic music. Each week features a different DJ and style of music.


Unsigned Sunday” is a syndicated specialty music program that has been with us for almost a year now. The show features underground alternative rock music and other surprises. It airs every Sunday night at 8 pm.
