Starting tomorrow, fans of K-ZAP will have a new way to listen to the renowned Sacramento rock radio station...to hear artists like Tom Petty, Gary Clark Jr., Beck and The Rolling Stones. K-ZAP will be on Capital Public Radio with a weekly one-hour show.
K-ZAP originally signed-off the air in 1990. It was resurrected nearly 3-years ago online and on a low-powered FM signal.
"One of our biggest challenges," explains Dennis Newhall, one of the original K-ZAP deejays who will host the new show, "is to try and get this out to enough people when you only have a low-power FM station which can generate, at the maximum, 100 watts. Which means that it would cover downtown Sacramento if we didn't have a signal that was compromised for other reasons."
"K-ZAP on CapRadio will be one hour on Saturday evenings, and it's a sampling of how we sound," says Newhall. "And fortunately, CapRadio has such a huge signal that we'll reach out to a lot of people who probably don't know we exist."
K-ZAP on CapRadio debuts Saturday, January 20th at 7 p.m.
