(XEQR-FM, S.A. de C.V.)
XEQR-FM is Mexico's most popular radio station.
XEQR took to the air in 1974 — more than 10 years after receiving its concession on December 3, 1963 — with the name "Radio Universal" and a format of music in English from the 1950s and 1960s. In 1991, it became known as "Universal Stereo 107.3 FM" and picked up the long-running "El Club de los Beatles" program from XERC-AM, which ceased airing it when that station dropped the Radio Éxitos format.
On December 7, 1998, XEQR and XHFO-FM engaged in a format swap. XEQR picked up the grupera format "La Z" which had started its run on XHFO in 1993, while Universal Stereo moved to XHFO.
