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.
