KCCT (1150 kHz) is a commercial AM radio station licensed to Corpus Christi, Texas. It is owned by Manuel Davila, Jr., and airs a classic hits format, focusing on pop and rhythmic hits of the 1980s and 90s. The studios, offices and transmitter are off Benys Road in Corpus Christi. Programming is also heard on FM translator K281AV at 104.1 MHz. The station calls itself "Retro 104.1."
On May 6, 1954, KCCT first signed on. It was a daytimer, owned by the International Radio Company. KCCT was a Spanish-language station through most of its history, aimed at the Mexican-American community in and around Corpus Christi. In the early 1980s, KCCT was given nighttime authorization by the Federal Communications Commission to broadcast at 1000 watts by day and 500 watts at night, using a directional antenna at all times to protect other stations on AM 1150.
Sunday mornings from 9 to Noon feature a locally produced automotive talk show titled "MotorHeads". The show is of interest to "do it yourself backyard mechanics", race fans, and fans of classic cars. Personalities include host Micheal Rhodes and James Lee, owner of a local repair shop. They are often joined by Peter Kendig who also owns a local shop specializing in restoration work on classic cars. Listeners are invited to call in with automotive questions, sometimes answered in a humorous style. Local classic auto shows are featured as well as South Texas area auto and motorcycle races.
