Call to listen to 986themix in the United States 605.475.4438

Welcome to 98.6 The Mix, KKMX!!

We offer a MIX of music from all decades and genres! Our aim is to keep all content family friendly so that anyone can listen.

We have several different servers for your listening pleasure: a main server, which features both automation and live shows, and a magnatune server. Magnatune is a label that promotes independent music artists and has released over 1500 albums in a variety of genres from classical to jazz. More servers may be added as we attract new DJs and dedicated listeners.

If you want to have closer interaction with the DJs or get up-to-date information on what's coming up on 98.6 the mix, then why not connect with us to find out about our multiple options such as the listeners list, Skype, TeamTalk, and much more!!

We hope you enjoy our station, created with you, the listener, in mind! Please let us know what we can do to improve and maximize your listening experience by using our contact form!

Team Talk

During some of our live show's you can find us on our TeamTalk server. We also stream most of the show's when we are on the server so that smart phone users can listen to the show and chat with us at the same time. Feel free to hang out even when no show is on. We'd love to have you join us!

In order that your experience is a pleasant one on our server, we ask that you please observe the following guidelines. Once you come on our server, you are bound by these rules.

We believe in an open access server for everyone to enjoy! If you have any questions, please email

  1. There will be no sexual talk of any type. This includes conversations/jokes about sex, making direct or indirect advances towards anyone online, or anything of that nature!
  2. Your display name must reflect either your real name or how you want to be known. You may not use the name of another person or represent yourself as someone else. For example, you could have the name Rachel or Mad Dog. However, something like, ďIím in love with Mad DogĒ is not acceptable. We also ask that you do not change your display name while on the server.
  3. Do not repeatedly come on and off the TeamTalk server. Itís fine if you come on and off once to see who is online, but donít do it again five minutes later. If you are experiencing technical difficulties, please either text or send a private message to one of the admins or anyone on the server who you know can help.
  4. Do not do anything intentional to disrupt a dj or show that is currently in progress. This means, do not try to distract a DJ when he/she is talking on air by verbal or text means. We also encourage DJs to mute TeamTalk when doing Voice Breaks. Also, if a show is streaming on TeamTalk, do not use your media stream to override the show.
  5. Only channels that are designated as on air may be transmitted on a show or recording for later use. Anyone who does not want to be heard on a live show should remain silent during talk breaks and inform the Dj that they intend to remain silent. Private show channels are to be considered on air channels. Channels such as the main 986themix channel or ones that do not have the on-air designation may not be transmitted under any circumstances regardless of peopleís consent.
  6. Please use headphones when coming on the server. This is important whether you are on the computer or phone. If you are unable to use headphones, please switch to push to Talk mode so that others on the server do not hear loud background noise or echoes. Also, when not using headphones and push to talk is enabled, please keep your volume at an extremely low level for the same reasons.

If you break the rules, then the following will occur:
