History[edit]

KXTZ was an Easy Listening station in Las Vegas from the 1971 until 1994. They were known as "Ecstasy". KXTZ beat their elevator music competition KEER-FM 97.1, forcing them to switch formats in 1984.

In 1994, KXTZ switched formats. They changed to soft AC and then Urban AC.

In the mid 1990s, KXTZ call letters switched from KXTZ to KJMZ. They were known as "94.1 - Jamz". In 1996, KJMZ became KMXB ("Mix 94.1").

The first song played on KMXB was Nirvana's "Come As You Are."
