HistoryEdit

Prior to its current format, the station was, during the mid-1990s (as KCAZ), the home of Radio AAHS, a format that featured children's programming and music. After Radio AAHS discontinued operations in January 1998, Children's Broadcasting Corporation, the station's owner, needed programming for the ten CBC-owned and operated Radio AAHS stations until it could find buyers. In February 1998, KCAZ, along with the other nine CBC stations, became an outlet for "Beat Radio", which broadcast electronic dance music 12 hours a day until late October 1998.
