KKMR used to be at 106.3 (as KONZ) and was a simulcast of KONC's Classical format and KEDJ's Modern Rock format. In 1997 it switched frequencies and began its ill-fated stints as a Triple-A and an Oldies outlet before returning to simulcasting KEDJ in 1999.
In 2001 Univision (when it was Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation) acquired the station and changed it to a Spanish-language Adult Contemporary station called "Amor" as a simulcast with KOMR and KQMR. In October 2005, Univision made adjustments to the "Amor" format making it more Oldies-driven, and changed the name to "Recuerdo".
