Ke Buena is the first Spanish radio station in Spokane and North Idaho that plays 24 hours of Spanish music.
Ke Buena first began broadcasting in Spokane in June of 2020. The radio station is broadcast in Idaho, Coeur d'Alene, Post Falls, and its surrounding areas. Ke Buena is a colloquial expression meaning 'hey how good is that.'
The station plays Mexican music such as ranchera, mariachi and more. The station reaches 500,000 listeners, of which at least 50,000 are Spanish speakers.
Ke Buena's morning radio host Rafael Cardenas said he is glad to bring a full-time Spanish radio station to the area. Cardenas comes from Michoacán, Mexico, and he said becoming a Spanish radio host has helped him achieve his dreams since he planned to start a radio station in the area 20 years ago.
For Cardenas, the most important part of his job is to inform people on time about everything that happens in the area. Cardenas informs the audience about weather conditions, new songs coming out, and inspirational phases for the listeners.
People can listen to Ke Buena on 95.7 FM, 1330 AM and on Facebook Ke Buena 95.7.
