“Are you Home?,” takes on a new meaning this week as many who are trying to get home from the holidays. if you got stuck traveling or had loved ones trying to get home, you know that the airports were a little crazy. Even more reason to fly to/from PSP!
Purple Room Palm Springs is taking a two week hiatus canceling shows through January 16th. AsiaSF is going on with their opening January 7th with dinner shows. We’ll have more this week on KGAY 106.5 and in our weekend digest.
I started the new year with FCC approval to transfer the KGAY AM 1270 and FM 106.5 licenses officially to me and my California Benefit Corporation, KGAY PSP. So I now own KGAY and look forward to serving our Coachella Valley community in the coming years along side Gay Desert Guide. Thanks to the many well-wishers on social media over the weekend!
Happy New Year from the entire team to you and yours!
Brad Fuhr, your Gay Desert Guide & KGAY 106.5 Palm Springs
