KSYU (95.1 FM, "The All New 95.1") is a commercial radio station located in Corrales, New Mexico, United States, broadcasting to the Albuquerque area. KSYU airs a rhythmic adult contemporary music format. It broadcasts at full power from a tower atop Nine Mile Hill west of Albuquerque.

History

95.1 was originally Contemporary Christian KSVA (which is now a Christian talk outlet on 920 AM) when it signed on in 1989, but by 1999 they would target Albuquerque as an Adult Contemporary outlet as KSYU ("Sunny 95.1"). This format also had a rhythmic lean to it as it described as "warm rhythms".

In 2002 after airing an all Christmas music format throughout December they would flip to an urban adult contemporary format branded as "Hot 95.1" that was patterned after sister station KHHT/Los Angeles on New Years Day 2003. Its slogan and format definition was "Old school and today's R&B".

On May 1, 2009, KSYU switched directions from Urban AC to an upbeat Dance-flavored Rhythmic Adult Contemporary direction, using the same musical approach as their sister stations in New York, Philadelphia, Miami and Ft. Myers.
