In June 1956 KEYD was sold, changed its call letters to KEVE, and played full time Country and Western – one of the first in the country to do so.

In 1959 it had a monthly newspaper called Big K News.

In 1959-1960 KEVE had a Sunday remote broadcast from the Fireside in Fridley.

An undated report says KEVE did a remote broadcast from the Flame on Saturday nights from 10:30 to 11:30 pm.
