“The return of 100.9 FM Louisville! WXND – a project of Xtendsound, Inc. – took flight during the Great Convergance on 12.21.20. The frequency 100.9 FM had been silent since January 1, 2020 when WCHQ Crescent Hill Radio went off the air. After that time, WCHQ transferred their frequency along with their extensive local music archive to Xtendsound, a Kentucky-based nonprofit organization. Xtendsound is committed to broadcasting local music and community radio on the airwaves from the rooftop of Rainbow Blossom Natural Food Market in St. Matthews.”
