The station began broadcasting in 1982, with the KMGQ call letters and a soft rock format, which gradually evolved to a Smooth Jazz format. In October, 1998, the format station switched to a country format, branded "Country 106.3", and changed the call sign to KKSB. In 2001, the station switched to a CHR format to compete with KIST-FM. However, it failed, and the station went on to air an Oldies format. In March 2005, Cumulus moved its smooth jazz programming back from KRUZ 97.5 to 106.3 and reverted to the KMGQ call letters.
On August 26, 2010, Magic 106.3 began broadcasting in HD-Radio.
On September 24, 2010, KMGQ changed their format from smooth jazz to classic rock, branded as "106.3 The Surf" and changed the call sign to KRRF.
In 2011 KRRF was granted an FCC construction permit to change the city of license to Oak View, California and move to a new transmitter site in Ventura County. The effective radiated power at the new site is 960 watts with the height above average terrain the same as at the former facility on Gibraltar Peak above Santa Barbara.
On March 13, 2013, KRRF filed for a license for the new Oak View facilities, indicating that they had begun operations from the new site. The format thus far has remained classic rock.
On March 31, 2013 KRRF began stunting.
On April 1, 2013 at 6:33 PM KRRF switched their format to classic hits, branded as "Classic Hits 106.3".
