KWPX Broadcast Schedule

Folks ask us all the darn time, “Hey, The Cowpoke, what’s your schedule of the programs that you all play on your radio station there?”

And we say, well, 92.785% of the time we play nothing but old Country & Western records.

But what about the other 7.215% of the time?

Well, those hours and minutes are filled up with special programs such as Grand Ole Opry Classics, the Cowpoke Classic Western Theater, the Clear Out West Radio Show, All-Star Western Theater, the Mother’s Best Sunrise Show with Hank Williams, and some other stuff that kind of escapes my mind right now.

So, to answer your question formally, you all can click here and have a gander at our program schedule. (It’s also on the menu up at the top of every page here, under the “About The Cowpoke” deedly-boober, except maybe if you’re looking at this on your transistor cellphone radio device.)

And if there’s a show we should be running that we ain’t running, drop us a line and let us know.

  1. Hi There, just a few minutes ago you played a song, probably called, “Sweet Love”. It’s kinda up-tempo. Could you please tell me who the singer/band is? Thanks from The Netherlands!

    1. Larry,

      Greetings from friendly Banta!

      That’s one of my favorites, too – “Sweet Love,” credited to Glen Ayers, but it’s actually our hero Red Simpson singing lead, with The Keynotes backing him.

      I’m not sure who the sweet-sounding girl singer is, but she provides the too-cute response vocal that puts the song over the top.

      It was released on Bakersfield’s Tally Records in 1957, with Glen Ayers and Red Simpson credited as the composers. Glen reportedly got the artist credit because he contracted the studio time. If the story is correct, Glen was the drummer on the recording.

      You can hear it in all its glory at:

      Happy trails to you,

      1. The sweet-sounding singer is Bonnie (Campbell) Owens.

  2. Howdy from SF Bay Area California! Hoping others find you as I have as a result of watching Ken Burns’ PBS Country Music documentary that finished airing yesterday.

    1. Jojo,

      We have enjoyed a healthy up-tick in listenership over the past several days – and we have to think that the PBS series has attracted quite a few new folks to The Cowpoke. Heck, when I watched it, Mrs. Cottonmouth had to shush me from saying “We play that tune! We play that tune!” every time a song came on during the show!

  3. Hi Cowpoke radio crew-

    Just discovered your wonderful old time broadcast 24/7. I drive a truck in overnight hours in the central valley and your station and format remind of the overnight trucker radio programs when AM ruled the waves. Keep it up, love listening.

    Thank you,
    Frisco Steve

    1. Howdeeee Frisco!

      We appreciate you! Drive safe and stop by for a tall cold one next time you’re rollin’ through — on us!

  4. Janet, 76, in nursing home in Yucaipa California wants to know how she can hear your station in Southern California! She was excited to know a station like yours exists in California–she wants EXACTLY what you offer! If your station won’t reach her area, would you please tell her what station will. Thanks!

    1. Miss Renshaw,

      Our piddly little signal doesn’t quite reach Lathrop, let alone Yucaipa, but if Miss Janet has a computer or a smartphone, she can listen here on our website or on one of a hundred apps that carry The Cowpoke, or an Internet radio (such as this swell one from that you can tune to KWPX.

      It sounds complicated, but it ain’t!

      Oh, and don’t bother trying to find a station just like us. We’re pretty much one of a kind! 🤠

  5. Howdy!

    That song I heard here awhile ago, about a lonely man drinking alone in a bar missing a woman, what’s the title?

    1. Howdy back!

      Was that the one about the lonely man drinking alone in a bar missing a woman who runned off with his best friend, or the one about the lonely man drinking alone in a bar missing a woman who runned off with his dog? There’s another one that involves a man drinking alone with his dog until the dog runned off to chase a squirrel, but that doesn’t quite match the established criteria.

      Our playlist is constantly updated at Online Radio Box, so you can see not only what’s playing now, but what’s been playing for the past few days:
