History

Prior to April 1, 1978, this station was known as KDOT, "K-Dot," and programmed the "Beautiful Music" format. The studios were on the second floor of a building adjacent to the Safari Resort hotel, on Scottsdale Road just north of Camelback Road in Scottsdale, Arizona. Every hour at the top of the hour the station would give the Legal ID announcement: "From the beautiful Safari Resort, this is K-D-O-T, Scottsdale." Just before midnight on the evening of March 31, 1978, the station broadcast its last selection from the Beautiful Music format. After a short pause, a new call sign was announced on the air, KOPA, and a format switch to Top 40 began. The first song broadcast on KOPA was "Hello, Goodbye" by The Beatles. The call sign KOPA was pronounced "copa" and reflected the last two syllables of Maricopa County (home to Scottsdale and the greater Phoenix metropolitan area). Beautiful music (sometimes abbreviated as BM / EZ) is a mostly-instrumental music format that was prominent in American radio from the 1960s through the 1980s. ... Top 40 is a radio format based on frequent repetition of songs from a constantly-updated list of the forty best-selling singles. ... ... The Beatles were an English rock band from Liverpool whose members were John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. ...


The station operated as KOPA until February 5, 1986, when the station would again change call signs and format. KSLX hosted a popular morning program in the late 1980s, the "Jones and Boz Show", featuring David K. Jones and Bob "Boz" Bell. Bell is a popular local western artist. The station would later be acquired by Sandusky as a sister station to KDKB and KUPD, thus creating a rock cluster in the market. KDKB is a commercial Rock music radio station in Phoenix, Arizona, broadcasting on 93. ... KUPD is a Active Rock outlet serving the Phoenix area. ...
