KBRG is a Spanish-language station in San Jose, California. It is the oldest surviving Spanish music station in the San Francisco Bay Area, having first appeared in the 1960s or earlier as 105.3 [1]. It moved to 104.9 (formerly the Spanish station KDOS) in December 1983, and then to 100.3 (formerly KBAY) in a three-station swap on December 31, 1997. 104.9 became KUFX, and later KCNL and KXSC. Owned by Univision Radio, Its studios are located in San Francisco's Financial District, and the tranmsitter is on Loma Prieta Peak on the Santa Clara/Santa Cruz County line.

From 1968 through 1971, KBRG broadcast Oakland Athletics games, with Victor Manuel Torres at the mike.

In 1992, EXCL Communications purchased KBRG (presumably it was independently owned before then). Sometime between 1992 and 1997, KBRG became one of EXCL's Radio Romántica stations, and it kept that format after EXCL was acquired by Entravision in 2000. On January 1, 2006, Univision purchased KBRG from Entravision and switched it to Spanish oldies under the name Recuerdo 100.3.
