On June 22, 2007 at 3PM (PDT) KSCF flipped to Oldies as "K-Surf 103.7." The first song played was "Surfin' USA" by The Beach Boys. They were supposed to be the market's first FM Oldies outlet since 2005, when XHOCL had the format prior to its flip to Regional Mexican. The last song played in the short-lived oldies format was "Bobby's Girl" by Marcie Blane. Following "Bobby's Girl" at 5PM (PDT), the Oldies format turned out to be a stunt as the station revealed its true format, a Hot AC/Triple-A hybrid targeted towards females as Sophie @ 103.7.

Demise of the "Free FM" format

At first, CBS Radio had high hopes for KSCF with extensive marketing aimed at attracting the adult male demos, but ever since they switched formats from KPLN to Free FM, the station's ratings started to drop. In fall 2005, (when 103.7 became Free FM), ratings were 2.2, mainly due to Howard Stern being the morning show host. In the beginning of 2006, 103.7's ratings dropped in half to a rating of 1.1, due to a much less popular Adam Carolla morning show. The ratings would later slip in Summer 2006 to a rating of 1.0, and remained at 1.0 in the Fall 2006.

In the end, the attempt to make Free FM a success in San Diego had proven to be too difficult and like other Free FM stations in New York City (WFNY) and San Francisco (KIFR), which returned to Active rock and Classic Hits respectively, KSCF decided to switch formats in June 2007. To add to the demise of the Free FM family of stations, Its sister station in Phoenix (KZON) flipped to Rhythmic Contemporary at the same exact time as KSCF's format switch (which was also at 5PM Arizona Time, same time zone as Pacific Daylight Time).
