The “K-Mozart” format and branding appeared on 105.1 from 2000 to 2007 before flipping to Country and on 1260 from February to October 2007. Jazz pianist/Orchestra conductor David Benoit will host an unannounced daypart along with Gary Hollis, P.J. Ochlan, Nick Tyler and John Regan. The station will also be heard on 105.1 KKGO-HD2.
Station owner Saul Levine tells the Orange County Register that the station “will be music that has survived the test of time. It will include Gershwin, Bernstein, Cole Porter as well as Ravel, Beethoven and Mozart. We are also retaining Jerry Sharell’s program on standards and classics on Sunday evenings.”
The existing format will move to 105.1 KKGO-HD3 and Retro105.com.
