KAHM (102.1 FM, "Beautiful Music") is a radio station broadcasting a Beautiful music format. The station is licensed to Prescott, Arizona and serves the Prescott/Flagstaff/Phoenix area. It first began broadcasting on September 9, 1981. The station is currently owned by Southwest Broadcasting.

History[edit]

KAHM went on the air on September 9, 1981, providing the Prescott area with a format of "Beautiful Music" which remains virtually unchanged to this day.

First broadcasting at under 1000 watts, KAHM's signal expanded in the early 1990s to 58,000 watts, serving the people of northern and central Arizona, along with the metropolitan Phoenix market.

KAHM now broadcasts 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. KAHM can easily be heard in southern Arizona as far south as Peoria, Scottsdale and Anthem.

Until September 14, 2015, KAHM also had an Internet stream.[1] The reason given for ending the stream was very high demand on the server due to the spike in listeners following the cancellation of the similarly-formatted Sirius XM Escape channel on conventional receivers.[2][3] As of February 1, 2016, KAHM began streaming again, this time under a $20 per month subscription model.
