KBXR (often known and referred to simply as BXR) is a local radio station located on Old Highway 63 in Columbia, Missouri. Its format has been Adult Album Alternative (AAA) since it went on-the-air on October 15, 1993. The first song was played at 1:06 pm and was R.E.M.'s "It's The End Of The World As We Know It". At the time, the frequency was 106.1, but it has since changed to 102.3.

102.3 BXR interviews bands or singers playing in the city's various locations. These interviews are conducted "Live In Studio X." Past Studio X guests have included . The proceeds from this project go to Boys and Girls Town of Missouri.

Annually, during Thanksgiving and about a week after that BXR has a "B to X" special event where the station airs its entire song library alphabetically with no repeats starting with song titles that begin with the letter B and ending with song titles that begin with the letter X. Many \ lesser known songs by various popular bands and singers are aired right along with more popular chart toppers. Also, this event allows various versions of the same song that have been remixed or remade to be heard back-to-back since the songs are spelled the same alphabetically.
