    One of the best reasons for living in Olympia is KXXO radio. There aren’t many locally owned radio stations around any more. KXXO was started by two kids who attended The Evergreen State College. In 20 years of broadcasting it has become a mainstay of the community. Local information, local happenings, local people, all good for this great community.

    They raise and give thousands of dollars to needy causes. They give free air time to deserving community organizations. KXXO (Mixx 96.1) is another great reason to live in Olympia!
