    KOPE was originally owned by Roy Masters and I believe he used it as his flagship for awhile, ergo “cope”.

    So what you’re saying is, KOPE stood for something like Coping with the world?

    KBBM: Big Band Music

    KYKN: Kickin Country (Now talk format)Call was in Eugene first, (sister station to KDUC) ,1280 kc, and changed to KQAK to go with KDUC.

    KGAY, 1430 kc, (Keizer) changed to KYKN.

    KIQY: As close as they could get alphabetically to K104 (Actually 103.7 but the bumper stickers said K-104)

    I engineered all of the above at one time or another. Been stiffed by KFLS,KSWB,KBBM,KWIP.

    1280 was the old KERG, owned by the Eugene Register Guard, an old line(I believe)CBS station, similar to KOIN radio. In the early 70s, it became Top 40 KBDF. The FCC picks up its Call letter changes, in 1987 with KWOW, KQAK, KDUK, in quick succession and finally KRVM, in 1996. (edit)I just checked with Wikipedia and they support my recollection. I couldn’t find anything else but at some point, the Eugene Radio Guide was back, after 6 years!

    John: Will enter your info. on the master copy. Thanks!

    KBDF is the call for the new station in Diamond Lake.

    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.
