KDNQ-FM - 99.1FM - LIVE FM - New Mexico's Independent


About Us:

Our logo from 2012.

Live FM was founded on New Year’s Day of 2012 on 102.1, as “Indie 102,” which specialized on broadcasting Indie Rock and Pop.  Due to popular demand, three months and twenty days (March 20, 2012) into the year, “Indie” moved to a stronger signal on 99.9, tweaked the playlist to have more variety and what do you know… “Live” was born.

Live FM isn’t your typical, generic radio station. Around here, we play the best, and newest Alternative, Indie, and Hip-Hop music. We also play anything else that catches our ears' attention.

By the way, did we tell you that we support local music? Don’t hesitate to send us your music our way! This is your station. We need your input to help Live FM be great, and choose the music you want to hear from us. We spend our days scanning the internet, going to shows, and receiving any music from local artists trying our best to broadcast the most interesting music for you!

Q&A:

Who are you owned by?
Live FM is owned by CMAW Media, a New Mexico multimedia business founded in 2003.

Are you guys really commercial free?
Yes. Live FM does NOT broadcast any commercials. We hate commercials as much as you do, so enjoy your listening experience, commercial-free!

Can I listen to Live FM on my phone?
Yes, Live FM is on the TuneIn app. Make sure to search for "KDNQ" and tap on Live FM.

Does your call sign stand for something?
Well, yes. Kinda…..
KDNQ stands for K D Ninety nine AlbuQuerque.
You’re now probably wondering, “What’s D99?” It’s a former sister station of ours that used to broadcast 99.9. It is now KMGG-LP, and we’re no longer affiliated with 99.9. We decided to keep the KDNQ calls. So we’re just going to assume it stands for K eiDNi (iNDie) AlbuQuerque, because that’s what we mostly broadcast here.

Can I submit my music?
Yes, yes you can. Click here for more info.

Why don’t you guys broadcast overnight?
The reason why Live FM doesn’t broadcast overnight (12 AM MT – 7 AM MT) is because we average a whopping ZERO listeners. Plus we don’t have enough staff to oversee the studio just in case something goes wrong (e.g. the player decides to play the song 20 times in a row, or something like that). Plus, it’s good to save a bit of energy, and help out the planet.
