KFAT (94.5 FM) was an eclectic freeform country music station which also featured a mix of blues, rock music, bluegrass, Hawaiian music, and other genres. The 94.5 frequency now belongs to KBAY.

Time on-air[edit]

KFAT was on the air from 1975 until January 17, 1983. The station was co-founded by Laura Ellen Hopper (1950–2007), Jeremy Lansman, and Lorenzo Milam, who helped start many of community radio's pioneering stations in the United States. Though KFAT is long-gone as a broadcast station, its legacy lives on via Santa Cruz area station KPIG-FM, as well as a few tribute sites and even a streaming webcast station.
