History

KBPI started at 105.9 FM in 1969. It is mainly rock, heavy metal, and some industrial music. During the 1970s and 1980s, its television commercials featured a blonde woman lip-synching with bits of popular songs and DJ's voices, and the tagline "KBPI Rrrrrrrrocks the Rrrrockies!" This catchphrase is still used in advertising and for a while the campaign was used at other rock radio stations in the United States and Canada. For the Stargate SG-1 episode, see 1969 (Stargate SG-1). ...


In 1994, KBPI moved to 106.7 FM, which had been the home of KAZY, its long-time competitor. Some of the DJs are Willie B., Uncle Nasty, Matt Need, Double A Ron, Joe Da Russian, Ditch, Wingnut, Taylor. Year 1994 (MCMXCIV) was a common year starting on Saturday (link will display full 1994 Gregorian calendar). ...
