Blue Christmas


On Thursday, December 21st 2023, we turn the studios over to the men and women in blue for our ‘Blue’ Christmas –  Area law enforcement get behind the wheel of KIIC radio for a different type of dispatch – they get to play whatever Christmas music they want – they also get to tell about their favorite holiday memories, or give shout-outs to their colleagues.

Here’s the schedule.  Be sure to tune in over the air, on line, on our smartphone app, or just tell Alexa ‘Play KIIC’
