History[edit]

KLOD[edit]

In the Summer of 1999, 100.1 MHz signed on broadcasting the syndicated LoudRadio hard rock format. The original call letters KLOD, were branded to launch the new Active Rock programming. KLOD was the first station in the United States to broadcast an online commercial radio network.[citation needed] LoudRadio was launched by veteran broadcaster Guy Guiliano, via the Napa, California-based eMusic company.

In the Spring of 2001, the format was changed to Smooth Jazz branded as The Cat. The new format was programmed by veteran entertainer Robert Shields. The format lasted less than one year as programming was changed to Hot Adult Contemporary branded as Star 100.1.
