KIDN-FM (95.9 FM) is a radio station licensed to serve Hayden, Colorado, United States. The station is owned by Patricia MacDonald Garber and Peter Benedetti and the broadcast license is held by AlwaysMountainTime, LLC.[2]

It broadcasts an adult hits format branded as "KIDN The Mountain" to the Steamboat Springs, Colorado, area.[3]

The station was assigned the KIDN call sign by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on April 10, 1992.[1]

The station's original format is unknown. Until 2010, the station was known as "Jack FM" then adopted its current branding "KIDN The Mountain". However, the website redirects to http://alwaysmountaintime.com/kidn/ which shows "The Lift FM" as current branding.
