 Gulch Radio – OnAir

gulchradiocopper3Hey Local KidsThe GULCH is happening on the FM airways at FM100.5.

GulchRadio can be heard in most parts of The Verde Valley now, including Sedona, Camp Verde, Cottonwood, Clarkdale, Rimrock, all parts in between and even up to the RIM on FM100.5!

The signal comes in very strong, better than we had ever hoped!

If your radio is part of a stereo system, it probably came with a Dipole antenna, t-shaped pieces of flat lead that will insure a nice solid signal (stereo) inside your home, in most cases.

Most likely, if you are in Jerome, Clarkdale, Cottonwood or Cornville you will be able to receive the Gulch indoors, without an antenna. In Sedona and Camp Verde, the simple antenna described above should work well. If you are trying and can’t get it to work, go outside to your car and turn the radio to FM and then tune to 100.5 to verify if we’re receivable.

If you have a problem, get contact us at GulchRadio – and we’ll help you figure it out.

In some areas the signal may get stronger at sundown.

If you are driving, our fabulous new FM Radio service comes in very clear all over the Verde Valley and as far away as Flagstaff – nice and clear on I-17 if you are headed north or south across the valley and to the east as far as Blue Ridge.

If you are out of our FM reception area, don’t worry, you can still listen to Gulch Radio on the internet:

OUTDOOR FM ANTENNAS ARE STILL AVAILABLE, Amazon and Radio Shack still sell them. If you can get us out in your car a small investment will accomplish the same in the house.

  1. Hello,
    I am a park ranger at the “Douglas Mansion” and we thoroughly enjoy listening to “The Gulch”. Nice variety! Please play more “Pearl Jam”! And if you get a chance to promote “Jerome Historic State Park” it would be much obliged.
    All The Best,

    • Hi Mark – Cool – we’re glad you are listening out there at the Park. We’ll see if we can slip some more Pearl Jamb in.

      We would be happy to broadcast information on any events you all are featuring.

      We listed you on our links page.

      Thanks again,

  2. Hiya.

    I like The Gulch and noted your legal ID no longer includes the AM frequency, just the LPFM frequency. A couple of questions, not really important, but I’m curious.

    a) Did you have to relinquish the AM license when you picked up the LPFM license, or was it just a choice you had (eg, save energy)?
    b) When you were on AM, did you have to broadcast in stereo, which used to be a requirement for licensees in the “expanded band”?

    Thanks. Rock on.


    • Our AM station, KCRJ – 1670 was an unlicensed, very low power, FCC Part15 compliant radio station. We broadcast at that time with 1/10th of a watt power which pretty much covered Jerome during the daytime. No it was not in stereo and I am not aware that expanded band AM licensed radio stations broadcast in stereo. If you are interested in Part 15 AM broadcasting check out:

  3. Thanks for that info. And congrats on stepping up to LPFM status. Local listeners over the air are still the bread and butter of most radio stations. Bon chance!

  4. Listening to you from Iquitos, Peru, on the Amazon River. Thanks to Ted Stratton for turning me on to you.

      • To be a little more clear…I’m an Arizonan (Tempe), but have lived here in the Amazon for many years. Really enjoying listening to KZRJ.

    • Music and Morons is on every other week, they will be on again tomorrow, Saturday April 18 at 6 PM MST/PDT 9 PM EDT – thanks for listening.

  5. I just found your station tonight and really liked a song I heard around 9:30 pm I Was hoping you had a now playing / recently played list so I could figure out the artist. Your station is a great discovery. Thanks!

  6. Had a great time listening from 5-6 with TheGeezer and now Motown! Really liking your radio station. Wake up to Rickandroll in the am…..awesome! I have been telling my friends about the station. The announcer for the Motown program sounds like he’s from Quincy, MA !?!?!?!?!?!? Is he from the Boson area?

    • Hi again Marianna – here is your accent answer from the Motown master himself:”……Lol. I grew up in Dedham MA about 15 min from Quincy MA. Pronounced Quin-zee”

  7. Music and Morons was especially delightful last Saturday! I don’t know if u take requests, but I trust you could find some NRBQ..”Ridin’ In My Car”(I do believe that’s the title. .been so long since I’ve heard my song)..and NEVER hear it on the radio. .I think your listeners would enjoy a splash of NRBQ! Thanks!

  8. We just found your station this morning and were really happy with the variety of music you play. My husband heard one of his favorites Loggins and Massina. Hope you stick around for a while and we will be tuned in to hear more. Thanks, Ralph and Diana, cv az

    • Thanks for writing Ralph and Diana in Camp Verde and thanks for listening. We’re planning on being here for a long time and we hope you will stay tuned in and enjoying the music.

    • Sorry this slipped by us Chuck – we play several versions of the song “I’m Ready” – I’m guessing you heard John Hammond’s. If it was a woman, it was Barbara Lewis.

    • Sorry Laurie – I didn’t see this message until today – that was on the Hermit’s show – show 1535 -go to his and check out the playlist.

  9. We love your station. Many of our friends have been told about it and they love it, too. Congratulations! It is the perfect station for the Verde Valley. We live in Sedona and your station is basically the only one we listen to. Question: How can you afford to run a station commercial free? We truly hope you can continue with that format because commercial free is “freedom” for your listeners. Keep going strong!

    • Hi Loren – thanks for your great letter! And thanks for turning your friends onto us. We are a non-commercial radio station and we will never have commercials. How do we do it? Everyone is a volunteer to start with. We receive donations via our website using paypal, our equipment was purchased with a grant from a local patron. Donations help a lot – one we can use the money for music and fees and two – they’re good for the radio soul – as are letters like yours, they are much appreciated. So, thanks again for listening and writing.

  10. Yo,
    This is Rob, Dan, JK & Scott from outside of Philadelphia we came out here for 10 to do some Canyoneering and found your station 100.5 FM on the top of West Clear Creek Wilderness Area on our third day after climbing out of the Bear Canyon. We have been tuned in since. The only regret is we did not find you two days earlier.

    PS we will be listing to steaming online

    Thanks for a great sound track for our vacation


    • Hey Bob, Dan, JK and Scott – thanks for the note. hope you had a great hike – Clear Creek is one of our favorite canyons. Safe travels home, we’re glad you are listening and will be on the internet as well.

        • Hey Scott – thanks for your support. Speaking of views, check out our new tower cam from our transmitter tower. No doubt the town can handle another hippie or two.

  11. Its.. 3:03. A.m. And im the Most Happy.. I’ve been All… Day… ! The music is most incredable, and I so.. can relate, as Ray Charles.. tells me, what I’ve Need to hear.. simply, so.. All… Day… Thank you, guys for your Expressions.. 😉

    • Thanks for the note Kareen – we’re glad you are enjoying the tunes! We love Ray too.

      Best regards -and check out our live camera, click on “live cam” up above.

  12. If they ever block your stream from reaching me on the interwebs I’ll…well, I just don’t know what I’ll do. But I’ll be really, really sad.
    Tom – Wiesbaden, Germany

    • Hey Tom – thanks for the note – much appreciated. I know of no effort to block internet streaming – I’d be bummed too – I love our world wide audience. There is currently an effort to raise our streaming fees tremendously, I hope not so much that we couldn’t afford to continue.

      Ric and Chaz

  13. Hey Gulch! I recently bought a place in Cornville and was going through the stations and came across The Gulch! fantastic station, I gonna go out there and say, this is most likely the best radio I have heard in 30+ years! and so happy its local, great job Gulch.

  14. I just found you after searching for music I can actually enjoy listening to all day and night. Your variety kicks hella great! Do you ever play any Jackson Browne? The tickets are sold out for his concert in Mesa so I will have to get my JB fix elsewhere.

    • Hey! Thanks for writing. Glad you are enjoying the tunes and listening. We play lot’s of Jackson Brown, but we don’t repeat songs on a daily basis, artists yes, songs no.

      Thanks for listening and writing!

    • Not sure if we follow any rule other than what is required by the FCC at the top of every hour “KZRJ-LP Jerome, Arizona” or what is allowed by the FCC ”KZRJ-LP FM100.5 Jerome, Arizona”

      I think usually we say FM100.5 The Gulch, Jerome, Arizona … but we probably do say 100.5FM The Gulch. Gulch would be pronounced – “Gullch”

    • What’s up with that is once a week we play Zappa for one hour solid. Zappa gets played throughout the week pretty much everyday.

    • Sorry Dave – the terms of our license allow us a restricted broadcast area. Prescott is not allowed for us, you’ll have to listen on the internet. Soon the should be a station on the air in Prescott Valley at 100.5

      Thanks for listening.

    • It’s really cool that you listen – and we love your photos around Croatia. They are fascinating and beautiful to me. Thanks.

      • I am glad you appreciate the beauty here but there is just as much there. You do realize the connection between Jerome and Croatia. There were many Croatian miners there and there are many people still there with Croatian last names like Vojnic, Pecharich and Vladovich.

        • Hi Roderick – yes, I am aware of the Croatian connection. Just talked with Rob Pecharich the other day. There was even a Croation newspaper in Jerome.

  15. Grew up in AZ with progressive radio in the 70’s but have been missing it for a long time. How refreshing to find your station on a drive to Flagstaff. I live in the ‘Dripping Springs’ area near Winkelman AZ and don’t currently have internet but now have incentive. You even blow my satellite radio away. Think you could find some old ‘Grupo Sportivo’?

    • Hey Stephen – thanks for listening, glad you like the station, we’ll check out Grupo Sportivo, I’m not familiar with them.

      Best regards,

  16. hi jerome i have a request for you.when i was a younger man,i was laying my huch listening to recordings from quicksilver messanger service they had one song on there that i never heard again, it was written by Denio Valintta . he was lead guitarist he wrote the song children of the sun.i think this was a capitol record release in 1968 or 1969.could you please look into this for me thank you. will be looking for your comments.

    • Hi Ed – I did a search on Dino, who died in 1994. He did a lot of stuff with Quicksilver, can you give me any more clues? Like what the song was about. I found an album by him on iTunes, the Lost Recordings – you might want to check it out. It’s spelled – Dino Valenti

  17. You wake me up, you fallow me all day, relax with me, shower with me, and end of the day you put me to bed, what a life, when you got 100.5, what else would you need to make your day, Thanks

    • Good morning Thomas – thanks for the great letter. We’re really glad you enjoy the station to the fullest!

      Thanks again for writing, you made our day.


  18. Love this station and the Verde Valley. I can have a little piece of it here in Denver, CO where we also live on mountain stranded time.

    • Hi Donna – thanks for writing and thanks for tuning us in. Us mountain folks – we’re having quite the winter aren’t we, just looked out the window and it looks like it’s starting to snow again. We can all use the water, that’s for sure.

      The best to you and yours,

    • Hi Tom and Betty – thanks for the note, welcome aboard. Glad you like the music, and we’re happy to be commercial free. Safe travels.

      Best regards,



  21. I found your station by accident while visiting from Tucson. Your music is wonderful and gives me something new (or old) to hear every day. To hear John Hartford today just made my heart glad. Good job!

    • Hi Julie – good morning. I love the John Hartford version of Gentle On My Mind. Glad you found us and thanks for writing
