KLNO (94.1 FM, "La Que Buena 94.1") is a Regional Mexican music formatted radio station broadcasting to the Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex in Texas. The station's studios are located along the John W. Carpenter Freeway in the Stemmons Corridor of Northwest Dallas.

This signal was created in 1981 when then owner Marcos Rodriguez, Sr. successfully petitioned the FCC to change the frequency of KESS 93.9 to 94.1 and permit a move to the Cedar Hill, Texas antenna farm. His son, Marcos A. Rodriguez, controlled this frequency from 1986 to 1999.

In 1964, Marcos Rodriguez, Sr. was hired by Mike Bradley and became the first full-time employee of 93.9 (then owned by John Walton and called KBUY-FM). John Walton purchased KBUY when it was called KCUL. Its call letters came from the backwards spelling of the original owner's name - Dr. L.H. Luck.

The station was assigned the KLNO call letters by the Federal Communications Commission on February 15, 2000.[2]
