Country music has gone from genre to lifestyle, with its own clothing, vehicles, beliefs and demographics. KIIM remains Tucson's favorite country station—not that it has had much competition in decades. The station plays the best new country and mixes in a well-researched collection of classic songs about hurting, healing, cheating and loving, as well as freedom, both personal and political. The morning show with Max, Shannon and Porkchop is one of the most popular and enduring lineups in Tucson radio. The station works hard to keep listeners actively engaged with special events, concerts, contests and call-ins. Count on KIIM also for up-to-the-minute traffic reports as you drive your pickup truck out of town on the evacuation routes.
