Experimental high-fidelity (Extended frequency range) broadcast station.

Ann Baker (Ketchum) worked at W9XBY in 1927, which later became KXBY. She started at the telephone switchboard as an assistant staff member in Production and Auditions at KXBY. Gradually she became known as "Ann Baker, Everybody's Sweetheart" and hosted her own program of piano and song three times a week. At about the same time she appeared regularly on the popular "Staff Frolic" program featured on Kansas City station WHB: "The World's Happiest Broadcasters", rubbing elbows with the likes of John Cameron Swayze, Ann Sothern, Pee Wee Reese, Buddy Rogers, Blue Steel, and Ted Weems. At KXBY she ran remotes live from the Sunset Club, featuring no less than Count Basie and his Orchestra.
