History[edit]

KAFF went on the air in late October 1962 as KFGT. It was an automated station owned by Gene Philippi.[1] Not long after signing on, the station went silent and was sold to Guy Christian, who changed the callsign to KAFF and put the station back on air that fall.[2]

An FM sister station, KFLG, signed on in 1968, originally playing adult contemporary during the day, country at night and classical music for a few hours on Sunday. The two stations swapped call letters on March 1, 1982, with the FM station becoming KAFF and the AM station becoming KFLG. On December 16, 1986, KFLG changed its call sign back to KAFF.[3]
