KKZQ (100.1 FM "The Edge") is a commercial radio station registered to Tehachapi, California, and broadcasting from Palmdale, California to the Antelope Valley area. KKZQ leases space on KSRY's tower.

History[edit]

KKZQ signed on in 2001 as Rhythmic Oldies "Mojo 100.1 FM".

In 2002, KKZQ flipped to Soft AC as "The Breeze 100.1", formatted very similarly to the already well established KOST 103.5 FM in Los Angeles (which could be received in the Antelope Valley).

In 2003, KKZQ flipped to its current format as Modern Rock The Edge 100.1. The format stuck because there were no other Modern Rock formatted stations audible in the Antelope Valley.

Programming[edit]

The station programming includes local programming starting with Mitchell, who is on during the morning. Gilbert is on during the midday and hosts the Lunchblocks at noon. Barone is on afternoons. Hardrive XL is on evenings. Hardrive can also be heard for two hours Sunday evenings followed by two hours with Full Metal Jackie.
