KMOD is trying to maintain its reputation was the vanguard of rock in Tulsa, but 2012 provided great challenges and changes that may have negative consequences. For example, as a supporter of the blues with the Smokehouse Blues show (Sunday evenings) that went off the air in August 2012. The problem is that the station said there were technical problems, but they would be fixed and the how returned to the air. This is 2012 and the show's return has yet to happen. Very bad management of affairs. For KMOD to return to its former glory, returning Smokehouse Blues Show to the air would be a good start and a solid show-of-faith to its fans.
