KBBD (103.9 FM, "103.9 BOB-FM") is the Spokane, Washington, adult hits music formatted radio station whose slogan is "We Play Whatever". The Mapleton Communications, LLC, station broadcasts at 103.9 MHz with an effective radiated power of 39,000 watts. BOB-FM is known in Spokane as playing the biggest variety of music with the largest playlist.

History[edit]

"BOB-FM" was originally signed on the air in 2004 by Citadel with high acceptance by the Spokane market. It quickly became a low rated station until Mapleton bought it in 2007. In the Summer 2011 Arbitron ratings survey, BOB-FM rated #1 12+.

KBBD was previously known as KYWL ("Wild 103.9"), which played hip hop and R&B and called itself "Spokane's party station".

Before Wild started in 2001, 103.9 played classic rock, and before that, modern rock (when the station was known as "Z-Rock").
