KRSP-FM (103.5 FM, "103.5 The Arrow") is a radio station in Salt Lake City, Utah. It is owned by Bonneville International, a subsidiary of Deseret Management Corporation, the for-profit arm of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.[1] KRSP-FM maintains studio facilities located at the KSL Broadcast House building in Salt Lake City's Triad Center (which also house KSFI and the KSL-AM-FM-TV partners), and its transmitter is located on Farnsworth Peak in the Oquirrh Mountains, southwest of Salt Lake City.

It plays classic rock music from the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s and features blocks of artists during the weekends.

KRSP-HD2, the station's digital second channel, plays "Deep Tracks," lesser-known songs from well-known artists.

History[edit]

Brothers Art and Ralph Carlson (who operated A&R Meat Company) signed on KRSP-AM in 1966 and KRSP-FM in 1967 as vehicles to advertise their meat company. Until about 1980, KRSP-FM was a top 40 competitor to KCPX-AM and in the early 1980s "Rock 103" was an album rock competitor to KCPX-FM. It was not until the mid-1980s, however, when the station had an established morning show (Jon and Dan) and, with virtually no rock competition, KRSP became a consistent ratings winner. When the Carlson family began selling their broadcast properties, the station passed into the hands of Simmons Media Group and in the early 1990s adopted an "All Rock and Roll Oldies" format. From there, it was sold to Bonneville International, and its studios are currently located in the same building as KSL[2]

Translators[edit]

In addition to the main station, KRSP is relayed by an additional three translators to widen its broadcast area.
