KWUL (101.7 FM) is a radio station licensed to Elsberry, MO, serving a wide area of the Metro West suburbs of St. Louis, MO.

As was its predecessor KQQX at 93.3 on the dial, the former-KXQX played a format consisting of mostly Alternative Rock music with very little interruptions from commercials or DJ chatter.

KXQX went on the air in November 2010, after having been country music station KLPW-FM "Action Country" for the past four decades. In 2008, the 101.7 FM frequency was relocated from Union, MO in Franklin County, over 50 miles to the Northeast to a site high atop the Mississippi River bluffs near Elsberry, where it better serves the St. Louis Metro West area.

KXQX has been off the air the last few years when its owner fell into financial difficulties. The radio station was forced into receivership in March 2016, and is expected to return to the air again soon with a new format under the new call letters KWUL, which became effective on December 9, 2016.
