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.
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.
Chuck Knapp retired in 2013, replaced by Neil Freeman who continued the Morning Show with Jon Engen. Jon Engen left the Morning Show in October 2014.
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.
