History[edit]

This station, launched in 1989, is not related to the earlier FM station launched in 1968 as "KGBC-FM" (106.1 FM),[1] then sold, moved to 106.5 FM, and re-licensed as "KUFO" in 1974.[2] That station, with shifting ownership and declining fortunes, became "KXKX" in 1979 and "KQQK" in 1986 before signing off forever and having its license cancelled by the FCC in March 1989.[3]
