KMJO (104.7 FM, "104.7 Mix FM") is a radio station broadcasting an adult contemporary format. Licensed to Hope, North Dakota, it serves the Fargo-Moorhead metropolitan area. It first began broadcasting in 2002 under the call sign KDAM.
104.7 The Dam
A construction permit (CP) was granted in 2000 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with the call sign] KCHY, broadcasting 200 watts covering Hope, North Dakota. Clear Channel Communications paid $800,000 for the CP for KCHY in 2002, and changed the call sign to KDAM.
KDAM signed on with 100,000 watts in October 2002, stunting with clips of songs of all genres, billing itself as "Quick 104.7", and playing ten songs per minute while other stations play ten songs per hour. The modern rock format known as "The Dam 104.7" debuted days later. It became popular, and gained larger Arbitron ratings than rival heritage active rock station KQWB-FM "Q98" at times. Despite a rimshot signal, "The Dam" also attracted more than 2% of radio listeners in the Grand Forks, North Dakota market, somewhat competing with co-owned active rock station KJKJ "KJ 108".
104.7 The Wolf
KDAM began stunting as "Quick 104.7" again, and later flipped to a country music format as "104.7 The Wolf" in December 2005, competing with KVOX-FM "Froggy 99.9". The format flip caused controversy with listeners, and several online petitions  were created to bring The Dam back. The Wolf was not as successful as "The Dam", and attracted less than 1% of listeners in the Fargo-Moorhead Arbitron radio market.
On September 28, 2006 that KDAM and the other Clear Channel stations in Fargo were sold to James Ingstad's Radio Fargo-Moorhead, Inc., who lives in Fargo. Ingstad once owned the stations and sold them in 2000, though KDAM didn't sign on until 2002. The sale was approved by the FCC on January 19, 2007.
On February 26, 2007, KDAM began stunting with an adult hits format, as "Ed FM", with talk show host Ed Schultz in the logo on its Web site. The station changed its call sign to KMXW and became an adult contemporary station as "Mix 104.7" on March 1, 2007, competing with Triad Broadcasting's Hot AC station KLTA "FM 105.1".
The station began airing Christmas music as a stunt on November 9, 2007 along with KEGK. On November 26, 2007 the station changed to an oldies/classic hits format with the name "Mojo 104.7", and changed its call sign to KMJO. Starting in April 2010, Mojo added more 80's music to their playlist.
104.7 Popster FM
On September 12, 2010, at 9PM, KMJO flipped to "104.7 Popster FM" with an adult hits format. Operations Manager John Austin said “it’s a brand new kind of radio station…as all the radio rules that most stations follow have been thrown out the window! It really is unlike anything that’s ever been on the radio”.
The first hour of music consisted of:
- Prince-Pop Life
- John Mellencamp-Jack & Diane
- Goo Goo Dolls-Give A Little Bit
- Madonna-Lucky Star
- Backstreet Boys-Quit Playing Games With My Heart

104.7 Mix FM
On September 10th, 2013, at 4pm almost 3 years after it launched, 104.7 Popster FM left the airwaves, replaced by an AC format as 104.7 Mix FM, offering around the same variety of music, only leaning towards more modern hits from 2000-present. Recently, they have also been including hits from the 60s and 70s, which was previously heard on Mojo.
