The station is closely linked to
(90.9 FM), and the stations
recently swapped signals to their current configuration. KXPR
carries programming from NPR
, and also has
locally-produced features as well as classical music shows.
Although KXPR does have a HD Radio
it has yet to sign on a HD2 or HD3 subcarrier.
Additional shows from KXPR's schedule include: Friday Night at the Opera
, The Metropolitan
Opera Saturday matinee
, Sound and Spirit
with host Ellen Kushner
(with the accent on the third of
four syllables), Musical Stages
, The Thistle & Shamrock
Music Society of Lincoln Center
, From the Top
, as well as A Prairie Home Companion
The station's powerful signal of 50,000 watts can reach both
Sacramento and Stockton areas fairly easily as the location of its
transmitter is roughly in between both metropolitan areas.
Therefore, Stockton residents now also have a full-market
classical-formatted radio station ever since KXPR and KXJZ
exchanged frequencies back in 2006.
KXPR is rebroadcast in the Yuba Sutter area on 88.7 KXJS and in the
Central Sierra on 91.7 KXSR.
