KDSK (92.7 MHz) is a radio station based in Grants, New Mexico, (population about 10,000), the county seat of Cibola County in western New Mexico.

KD Radio Incorporated (KD Radio) purchased KDSK-FM in January 2001. Having had much success with kdradio.com in California, it was decided to put the massive KD Radio oldies format of 7000 songs on the broadcast sister station, 50-year-old KMIN-AM (980 kHz). KDSK was a hot country station at this time. In April 2001 KMIN began streaming its Sound Souvenir's programming on the internet at kmin980.com. On June 14, 2004 KMIN's Sound Souvenir's format moved over to KDSK-FM. Due to the Sound Souvenir's strong showing in the ratings, number one in its market, management made the decision to move the format to the stronger KDSK-FM signal. This move was made after one week of simulcasting the Sound Souvenir's format on both KMIN-AM and KDSK-FM.

KDSK-FM currently has a construction permit from the FCC to increase its category from a C2 station to a C1 station station by moving its broadcasting tower on the south side of Mt. Taylor 20 miles closer to Albuquerque, increasing the antenna height by 2500 feet, and by increasing its transmitter power from 26,000 watts to 45,000 watts. The station's usable signal previously has been limited in Albuquerque to neighborhoods of higher elevation. The upgrade will significantly increase KDSK's city grade signal level coverage in the Albuquerque radio market.
