KCLZ (95.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a mainstream rock music format, simulcasting KCLB 93.7 FM Coachella, California.[1] Licensed to Twentynine Palms, California, USA, the station is currently owned by Copper Mountain Broadcasting Company.[2]

History[edit]

The Federal Communications Commission issued a construction permit for the station to Desert Willow Broadcasters on February 5, 1993.[3] The station was assigned the call sign KHWX on March 12, 1993, and changed its call sign to KKJT on July 22, 1994. The station received its license to cover on October 21, 1996.[4] On October 6, 1997, the station's license was assigned by Desert Willow to Three D Radio, Inc.[5] On January 26, 1999, the station changed its call sign to KDHI. Following a bankruptcy filing by Three D, the station's license was assigned on July 6, 2004 to the current owner, Copper Mountain Broadcasting. The price for the transaction, which included the license for sister station KKJT, was $350,000.[6] The station changed its call sign to the current KQCM on September 3, 2004.[7]

On October 20, 2011 KQCM and its CHR format moved from 92.1 FM Joshua Tree, CA (now KKCM, simulcasting country-formatted KXCM 96.3 FM Twentynine Palms, CA) to 95.5 FM Twentynine Palms, CA (new frequency that just signed on the air).

On January 1, 2014 KQCM and its CHR format moved to 105.3 FM Twentynine Palms, CA (formerly talk-formatted KRSX-FM), while the 95.5 FM frequency became a simulcast of mainstream rock-formatted KCLB 93.7 FM Coachella, CA, under new calls, KCLZ.
