The last few days have been a whirlwind here at our radio station in Preston. Now, we can finally let you in on the news. There’s a new radio station in town...

Let’s start at the beginning. On Monday morning the Oldies format departed from 104.3. Immediately, new voices started directing people to listen Thursday morning at 8 am. Talk of “Queen 104.3”, “Billy 104.3” and a variety of other artists had people curious. Calls, emails, and Facebook messages from intrigued and excited listeners came in. Enthusiasm began to build.

After 3 days of anticipation, the new station launched this morning at 8 am. Southeast Minnesota radio icon James Rabe joined an all-star cast of media friends in the studio to introduce the all new FUN 104.3, Southeast Minnesota’s Greatest Hits.

He immediately kicked off the FUN 104, one hundred and four minutes of non-stop music, a daily feature of the new station with Wang Chung's Everybody Have Fun Tonight.

Why the change? We listened. Over the last year we received great feedback from our listeners and we’ve crafted FUN 104.3 to meet those needs.

Our music: Southeast Minnesota’s Greatest Hits. It means music you know and music you love. It’s all about a wide variety of music. You hear them played at weddings, featured in tv commercials, and played between batters at Target Field.

More Music: This station is all about fun, upbeat, positivity. What better way then to start and end the workday with non-stop music for 104 minutes. We call it the FUN 104 and start weekdays at 8 am and again at 3 pm.

Personalities: We’ve got 2 of the best in Southeast Minnesota. While you work, Sarah Sullivan plays your requests from 10 am to 3 pm. As work winds down the fun picks up with James Rabe from 3 pm to 7 pm.

Contests and Events: Prepare for fun ideas this fall and winter. Contests with cash prizes, concert tickets, and trips are coming. You can bet they will be fun! And we will be at the area’s biggest events. In addition to local parades, festivals, fairs, and carnivals, expect to have fun with FUN 104.3 throughout Southeast Minnesota as we continue to broadcast the biggest local sporting events.

FUN 104.3 is a station designed for you. Fun to drive to, work to, and cook to. That is what this is all about. We would love for you to give us a listen, join our FUN FAM, download our APP, connect with us on Facebook, and share the fun with your friends. You can never have too much fun.
