KLOO-Corvallis = K- locally owned and operated
KFAT-Corvallis = When Kfat Gilroy, Ca. was sold and changed format
KLOO-FM immediately filed for the KFAT calls and
got them in record time. The former crew of KFAT
who at the time were putting together another station later to become KPIG
were really pissed and accused the folks in Corvallis of “stealing” the
call letters. When the KLOO-KFAT sold in 1995 the GM, former PD who had grabbed the call letters notified the folks at KPIG in California that the calls would probably soon be available since the new owners did not like them. They did not respond and the calls ended up at a hip hop station in Alaska.
