Saturdays 2:00 - 2:30 PM

The Feather River College Golden Eagle Update is a collaboration between KQNY and our local community college. Each show will present news on FRC athletics, academics, outreach, and campus events that are open to the community.

Quincy Soul is a show dedicated to soul and soul-adjacent music, ranging from 60s to modern day. From Jerry Butler, to J Dilla, to Dionne Warwick, we're going to throw it all in the mix and call it a good time! Make sure to tune in for a chance to get melancholic, a little groovy, and definitely soulful.

The letters in my name can be rearranged to say “I’m mostly me.”  Preferred pronouns:  it, them.  This show’s for the night owls… Not any sort of cure for insomnia, but definitely not ready for prime time hard rock (Motörhead, Blue Öyster Cult, pretty much anything with an umlaut in it), hard funk (Parliament, The Brothers Johnson, Slave, and recent artists from the New Orleans funk scene) jazz-rock fusion (Steve Morse, The Aristocrats) along with whatever punk or prog rock or irreverent comedy bit might fit in.  Mixed up, but without indifference.

For all you metal fans and head bangers young and old.  Join Steve Hill as we journey through the metal sounds of bands like Black Sabbath, Rammstein, Slayer, Motorhead, Saxon, Iron Maiden, Metallica, Slab, Judas Priest, Type O Negative, Selpultura, Monster Magnet, Deep Purple, Stabbing Westward, Apocalyptica, Amorphis, and Mastodon. We take all types of metal: doom, thrash, death, power, gothic and more.

An eclectic mix of genres spanning from jazz to house, alternative to soul, hiphop to folk. Music to take you from morning till night in Quincy, wake you up and put you to sleep and then do it all again. This show wants to make you dance and maybe even make you cry.

When pollen is transferred from one plant to another, the plant produces a genetically unique seed. Similarly when two musicians play together, they create unique songs. Cross Pollination will highlight the collaborations between artists, the crossovers between genres, and the connections between songs. Each episode will present a network of creativity that spans across time and genre.

Truths & Rights

Host:  Paul Vaughn


Fridays 6:00 - 8:00 PM

Saturdays 6:00 - 8:00 AM

A unique interview show where anonymous individuals tell their own real life stories of how their addiction began, how it progressed, and the sometimes brutal consequences that led to a road out of a life of active addiction. With no two stories alike, addiction appears to be indiscriminate, affecting people from all walks of life. The show delivers a message from desperation to hope for the community, the still-suffering addict, and affected family members. 

KQNY  91.9  FM

Jazz is an American art form, a language, sometimes intimate, often boisterous, but always layered with experience and life profoundly lived.  Jazz originated in New Orleans around 1895 combining elements of ragtime, marching band music, and blues.  This show will be an improvisation . . . Combining many of the musical elements that went into creating jazz and what has emerged on the other side.  Sometimes each song is carefully picked out, and other times one song leads into the next in a spontaneous effort to create a "show."  Miles Davis said, "I'll play it first and tell you what it is afterward."

The Jane & John Doe Show

Host:  Mari Erin Roth


Thursdays 11:00 PM - 12:00 AM

Sundays 9:00 PM - 10:00 PM


Jamaican classics emanating from the universal nexus of historical materialism, anti-colonialism, and vinyl-electric soul. Riddim Come Forward! Ska  + Rocksteady + Reggae = PeaceLoveRevolution. DJ General Strike spins the vibrations direct from wax to needle and across the airwaves for the enhanced boom of your Hi-Fi. Specially Intensified! 

Acoustic Space is an hour-long program exploring the wooden tones of everything from old-style Americana to modern folk and instrumental musings.  With fast and energetic to mellow-toned compositions, we'll hear the full sound spectrum of what acoustic music has to offer.  Songs are selected using a complex algorithm based on the following formula:
(X=amount of lyrical mumbling; Y=number of made-up words; R=cumulative references to "The Man"; T=time spent making incoherent noise; A=gauge of the artist's horn-rimmed glasses; B=whether or not artist actually needs said glasses; C=if she or he wears them "ironically")

Saturdays 7:00 - 8:00 PM

Your host (Tio Jim’s nephew) splashes a zig-zaggedy rhythmical cocktail that heartbeats through Havana, Kingston, New Orleans, Memphis, and beyond. The “Basement Party” is hand-crafted for the musical pleasure of both aspiring and experienced Soul Sisters and Hepcats (as well as their animal companions). Tommy McCook – Charlie Parker, Carla Thomas – Hortense Ellis, Soul-Stirrers – Wailers, Johnny Otis  – Beny Moré, Otis Redding – Toots Hibbert. “Upsettingly Soothing” and “Soaking Great!” Find a big comfy chair, or dusty dance floor, and release yourself. Please don’t spill that beverage on the speakers (just bought them last week at a yard sale). Tighten up, here comes another Scorcher!
