The New Country 96.3 Online Museum

In honor of the 50th Anniversary of New Country 96.3 KSCS Radio in 2023, we have officially opened the New Country 96.3 Online Museum. Enjoy a variety of great segments from the past 50 years, and incredible photos and memories from the last 5 decades.  Check back frequently for new additions to the Online Museum.  

The Origin – In 1973, classical music station WBAP-FM, a radio station that was started by Fort Worth legendary newspaper publisher Amon Carter, switched formats to become the first country station in North Texas on the FM dial, 96.3 KSCS.  Also know as Silver Country Stereo (that’s where KSCS got it’s call letters) KSCS Radio was the only country station on the FM dial for the rest of the decade. 

In 1988, the station made a bold move to hire Terry Dorsey away from a competing radio station. Terry along with a young sidekick hired from San Antonio named Hawkeye, took 96.3 KSCS to new heights, becoming the most popular radio station in DFW.  

   Terry retired in 2014, and Hawkeye along with Michelle Rodriguez have continued the to bring fun and merriment every single morning on New Country 96.3.  Join them along with our current hosts Al Farb and Rachel Ryan in celebrating 50 years of great country radio.
