KKAL (92.5 MHz) is a commercial FM radio station broadcasting an adult album alternative (AAA) radio format. Licensed to Paso Robles, California, United States, it serves the San Luis Obispo area. The station is owned by American General Media. KKAL is notable due to its linkage to the area's wine industry and culture, both in its imaging (e.g. the "Krush" name, as in crushed grapes) and various wine-related programs that air regularly. The studios and offices are on Sacramento Drive in San Luis Obispo and the transmitter is off TV Tower Road in Santa Margarita, California.[1]

History[edit]

KKAL first signed on the air on November 20, 1972 as KPRA, the sister station to AM 1230 KPRL.[2] Throughout the 1970s, the station aired a country music format. Other previous formats on the station have included modern AC (under the name Star 92.5), CNN news/talk and classic country.
