KLCI (106.1 FM, "Bob 106") is a radio station serving the northwest Minneapolis-Saint Paul area of Minnesota, United States, that broadcasts a country music format. It is licensed to suburban Elk River, Minnesota and serves the Twin Cities as a rimshot signal. Bob 106's transmitter is in Albertville, Minnesota and its studios are in Ramsey, Minnesota.

KLCI's playlist focuses on a variety of country music. The station has a playlist of country from the 1960s to the best of today, with some music from the 1950s as well. KLCI adopted the slogan "Minnesota's TOTAL Country" to promote this.[citation needed]

In 2006, KLCI became the radio flagship of Minnesota Lynx and Minnesota Timberwolves basketball, but lost this role with the Timberwolves starting with the 2008-09 season.[citation needed]

Bob 106 logo used until March 2008

The station's nickname, "BOB 106.1", came from a former Twin Cities country station, BOB 100, which changed formats in 1997 to an all-rock format with Howard Stern in the Morning. KLCI picked up the nickname and referred to itself as "The New BOB". The station was previously known as WQPM-FM, with the same country format.[citation needed]

In 2007, BOB 106 signed the long-time Twin Cities morning duo of Chuck & Jon (Chuck Knapp and Jon Engen) who had been the number two morning show in the Twin Cities area at KTIS-FM.[citation needed]

KLCI has a sister station, KDDG FM 105.5 in Albany, Minnesota.[citation needed]

BOB 106 has an agreement with WCCO radio that if Gophers are on at the same time as Minnesota Wild then BOB 106 broadcasts the Wild games.[citation needed]
