The station first existed as KCRM from 1982-06-01 to 1993-12-27, before changing its call sign to KHLR. On 2001-04-09, the station call sign became KXCS-FM, which it kept until receiving its existing call sign of KJXJ on 2007-03-29.
Transition to KJXJ
On the evening of 2007 March 19, DJs announced that the station was changing from the Rock/Alternative Rock format. The last DJs that night were Kira (on-air moniker: "The Queen of Rock") to 10 PM, and Dex Peck from 10 PM-midnight. The last songs under the old format: "I Ran (So Far Away)" by A Flock of Seagulls; "Snakes on a Plane (Bring It)" by Cobra Starship; "Joker and the Thief" by Wolfmother; "Teenage Dirtbag" by Wheatus; and "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen, dedicated by Dex to a list of staffers.
The transition day of March 20th was a confusing and motley collection of music not conforming to a single genre. Across the course of the day, listeners heard a bizarre mixture of Rap, Classic Rock, Show Tunes, TV Theme Songs, Reggae, Easy Listening, and others. Shortly after midnight, the audio feed abruptly cut off in the middle of a long string of Irish Drinking Songs, and suddenly new programming came over the air, identifying the broadcast as a Jack FM station. On 2007 April 3, this station began identifying itself as KJXJ-FM.
Return to Rock
On September 20, 2010, KJXJ abandoned the Jack format and became "Rock 103.9."
