KKZQ (100.1 FM, "The Quake") is a commercial radio station registered to Tehachapi, California, and broadcasting from Palmdale, California to the Antelope Valley area. KKZQ leases space on KSRY's tower.
KKZQ signed on in 2001 as Rhythmic Oldies "Mojo 100.1 FM".
In 2003, KKZQ flipped its format to Modern Rock The Edge 100.1. The format stuck because there were no other Modern Rock formatted stations audible in the Antelope Valley.
On March 10, 2015 KKZQ shifted their format to mainstream rock, branded as "100.1 The Quake".
The station programming includes local programming starting with Mitchell, who is on during the morning. Gary Crews is on during the midday and hosts the Lunchblocks at noon.
