KFYR 550 AM (link)
KFYR (550 AM kHz) is a radio station located in Bismarck, ND owned by Clear Channel Communications. It transmits on a 5,000 watt signal.

Because of it's location near the end of the AM band and because of North Dakota's flat landscape it can be heard in five states and two Canadian provinces. It has the largest land coverage area in the United States of any AM radio station during daytime hours.

KFYR began playing ethnic German Oom-pah music until sometime in the early 1960s, when it switched to popular and oldies format. It was very popular with teenagers by virtue of its "torrid twenty" countdown show which featured the twenty popular hits of the week. It was revamped in the late 1990s and since then has broadcasted a variety of programming, with news and talk radio during the day, and classic rock and oldies music during the evening.
