History

From the late 1960s until 1987, the 94.7 frequency was home of KMET, a very popular album-oriented rock station which was owned by Metromedia-before that the station was called KLAC-FM. The station's ratings were high until the early 1980s when they lost ground to other competition. Many observers believe the station's ratings struggles were greatly enhanced by embracing the advice of foreign (New York)music consultants, and abandoning their identity as the "Soundtrack for Southern California". Specifically, taking the spontaneity of having disc jockeys pick music played on the air, as well as reducing advertising budgets, resulted in significant ratings drops.

The station changed to a New Age Music/Soft Rock/Contemporary Jazz format with the nickname "The Wave". The initial focus of this new format was primarily non-vocal new age music, but over the years, the station moved to more of a smooth jazz sound.
