The station signed on the air on February 10, 1971.KXTZ was a beautiful music station from 1971 until 1994. The call sign spelled out the moniker "Ecstasy." KXTZ beat the market's easy listening music competitor KEER-FM 97.1, forcing that station to switch formats in 1984.
In the mid 1990s, KXTZ call letters switched from KXTZ to KJMZ. The station was known as "94.1 - Jamz". In 1996, KJMZ became KMXB ("Mix 94.1"). The first song played on KMXB was Nivana's "Come As You Are." In 1998, KMXB was acquired by Infinity Broadcasting, which later merged with CBS Radio.
In 1999, KMXB's morning drive time show, "Mark and Mercedes in the Morning," appeared on an episode of "Everybody Loves Raymond," a popular TV sitcom. "Mark and Mercedes in the Morning," celebrated their 10-year anniversary in 2007.
In December 2007, KMXB's "Mark & Mercedes in the Morning" scored the first post-rehab interview with Lindsay Lohan in a contest where listeners had to get celebrities to call in for Hannah Montana tickets.
