History[edit]

KAYD was one of the oldest FMs in Texas. It originally broadcast on 99.5 as KRIC in the 1950s until interference to viewers trying to watch KGUL (now KHOU) TV in Galveston caused the FCC to swap frequencies with Lake Charles, LA and put KRIC on 97.5 FM. Later the callsign was changed to KAYD to match its AM counterpoint, 1450 KAYC. Later, the callsign was changed to KFNC and a new 2000 foot tower was built for the 97.5 frequency near Winnie, TX so it try to move to the Houston market in 2001. The callsign KAYD was moved to 101.7, licensed to Silsbee, TX. 101.7 was assigned the call letters KWDX on December 10, 1979. On February 11, 2000, the station changed its call sign to KLOI; on April 10, 2002, to the current KAYD.[3]
