KQDS-FM (94.9 FM, "KQ 95") is a classic rock music formatted radio station located in Duluth, Minnesota. It is owned by Red River Broadcasting, and follows a format similar to that of the well-known KQRS-FM in the Twin Cities. The studios are located at Grandma's Marketplace, 501 Lake Ave South in Canal Park, Duluth. The station's studios also house NU 92, 94X and 1490 The Fan.
