"Kix 105" KXKX is a Country station licensed to the oddly named Knob Noster, Missouri. The town's name came from two local hills, or "knobs," that appear in an otherwise flat part of the state. Combined with "noster," which is Latin for "our," and the town's name is essentially "Our Hill."


  1. Thanks for researching the origins of Knob Noster Greg. I've always wondered about that myself. Here's a few more for you to research: Assawoman, Virginia; Dildo, Newfoundland; French Lick, Indiana; & Smelley, Alabama.

  2. My first time to know about the origin of the name of the place.. good work! By the way, the areas accommodates families of the men of the US Air Force.
