101.9 KQPW - Power 102

KQPW (Power 102) – Fresno, CA – 6/6/91

Recorded 24 years ago today, this is a sample of the morning show at Power 102 (101.9 FM).  The station  went head-to-head with longtime market leader KBOS “B95”. According to comments posted to this B95 aircheck, Power 102 employed a hip-hop-heavy approach at some point.

That’s pretty much all I know about Power 102; Google searches haven’t helped. Any additional, factual information about the history of Power 102 is appreciated.

  2. This station first went on the air in December of 1990 after taking over the KOQO “Super Q” Spanish music station. In December of 1991, it reverted back to KOQO “Super Q” after one year. I was an avid listener of this station. It had a better selection of music than KBOS with more pop and dance-oriented songs.
