KFRC is… back

radioActually, KFRC never left it just changed formats from classic rock to a format “Featuring a combination of rhythmic hits from the 80s, 90s and today.” Now, KFRC Classic Hits is back but now down the dial.

So, what has changed? Here we go… 106.9 Free FM is now KFRC Classic Hits; MOViN 99.7 is now KMVQ, no format change; Free FM’s Adam Carolla, Opie & Anthony and Tom Leykis move to KYOU (KYCY) 1550 AM.

Bad news for those who listen to the “Free FM” personalities as 1550 is not a strong signal in the South Bay. Currently, no information when the KYOU format changes. For now, you can find streams at Free FM Los Angeles and New York.

KFRC On-Air: Dave Sholin, Celeste Perry, Jay Coffey, Steve Moore, Ben Fong-Torres (Sundays)

The San Francisco Sound

KTRB 860A new radio station began broadcasting February 1 on the AM dial, KTRB 860. KTRB will play continuous music reprising the late 60s and early 70s including The Grateful Dead, Jefferson Airplane, Big Brother & The Holding Company, and a number of other Bay Area artists. However, KTRB’s permanent format begins March 1 15.

From their press release: “KTRB will bring a fresh sound to the Bay Area to add diversity to the choices available to the public. KTRB will entertain and inform with fresh, lively content, the likes of which the public does not now have available.”

If you like music from the 60s and early 70s give a listen now as who knows what will happen in March.

For more on this story check this post by our friend Mark Pritchard, San Francisco Metblogs.

Update: The new format will be talk. Returning to Bay Area airwaves are Mancow Muller (broadcasting from Chicago) and John London (broadcasting from Austin). Other syndicated shows may fill other time slots during the day. “The San Francisco Sound” may continue on weekends.

In other radio news: KCNL 104.9 changes format from Spanish alternative to alternative music in English. The new format will include new and older alternative songs, and will draw heavily from listener requests.
