KAFY (1100 AM) is a radio station broadcasting a Spanish Oldies format. Licensed to Bakersfield, California, USA, the station is currently owned by La Favorita Radio Network, Inc.[1]

History[edit]

KAFY signed on in 1946. In the 1960s & 1970s, KAFY was the top-rated rock station in the Bakersfield area. At that time it was located at 550 AM. KAFY was among the several stations in California using the "Boss Radio" format, similar to KHJ in Los Angeles, KFRC in San Francisco, KGB in San Diego and KYNO in Fresno. In a business deal with Buck Owens, the owner of KUZZ (a country station), the station switched frequencies. On November 9, 2000 the station on 1100 kHz was granted the KAFY call letters.[2]
