KVAR (93.7 FM, "Alley Cat 93") is a non-commercial educational radio station broadcasting a classic rock music format.[1] Licensed to serve the community of Pine Ridge, South Dakota, United States, the station is currently owned by Alleycat Communications.[2]

History[edit]

The Federal Communications Commission issued a construction permit for the station on August 4, 2005.[3] The station was assigned the KVAR call sign on August 29, 2005,[4] and received its license to cover on September 23, 2008.[5]

Attesting that it had aired no paid commercials since it was licensed and that it had arranged a partnership with a local college, KVAR applied in November 2008 to become a non-commercial educational station.[6] The FCC granted this request on December 18, 2008.[6]
