KLUV was first established in 1983 and bills itself as a "Classic Top 40" station. Year 1983 (MCMLXXXIII) was a common year starting on Saturday (link displays the 1983 Gregorian calendar). ...


In the late 1950s, the station was first established as KOST. The callsign was immediately requested when the application was sent in 1959. It was then rebranded KROW in 1961 as a Top 40 station in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, owned by Gordon McLendon. Two years later, the callsign changed to KLIF as a simulcast of sister station KLIF (AM). Year 1959 (MCMLIX) was a common year starting on Thursday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ... Year 1961 (MCMLXI) was a common year starting on Sunday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Gordon Barton McLendon (born June 8, 1921 in Paris, Texas; died September 14, 1986) is widely credited for perfecting, with great commercial success, the Top 40 radio format during the 1950s and 1960s which was first invented by Todd Storz. ... KLIF is a news and talk AM radio station licensed to Dallas, Texas. ...


In the 1970s, the station changed to KNUS, while maintaining its top 40 format. KNUS had previously been an all-news and then a progressive rock station, as "K-News." When McLendon sold his AM Top 40 flagship KLIF to Fairchild Industries in 1972, he offered them KNUS as well, but Fairchild declined. As part of the sale, McLendon agreed not to operate any AM station within a 150-mile radius, but since the agreement did not forbid him to operate an FM station, McLendon continued to operate KNUS and morphed it into a rock-based Top 40 station which played hit music without the "bubblegum" and "teeny-bopper" material. Fairchild Industries was created from a name change from Fairchild Hiller Corporation, division and subsidiaries: Fairchild Aircraft Marketing Company, Fairchild Aircraft Services Division, Fairchild Republic Division, Fairchild Space and Electronics Division, Fairchild Stratos Division, Burns Aero Seat Company, Inc. ... Year 1972 (MCMLXXII) was a leap year starting on Saturday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...


KNUS eventually transitioned into a more mainstream Top 40, and it paid off when the station passed KLIF in the ratings in the fall of 1975, becoming one of the first FM Top 40 stations to defeat its chief AM competitor. By the end of the 1970s, however, KNUS had fallen out of the top ten, and the station switched to an adult contemporary format as KLVU in 1981 before adopting the current oldies format in 1983, playing pop oldies from the 1950s to the late 1960s. Year 1975 (MCMLXXV) was a common year starting on Wednesday (link will display full calendar) of the Gregorian calendar. ...

After 1998, 98.7 KLUV, like many oldies stations around the United States, largely removed the 1950s songs from its playlist. Another KLUV station, 1190 AM (coincidentally, the former KLIF), existed from 1998-2000 and primarily played 1950s music. Meanwhile, the main station tweaked its format to pop oldies from the mid 1960s to early 1980s. Starting in 2002, the station was temporarily the "radio home" of the Dallas Cowboys, featuring live broadcasts of their games. In 2006 Dallas Cowboys broadcasts will move to KTCK.
