KDVS plans Feb. 1 concert marking radio station’s 50th anniversary

From page A9 | January 21, 2014 |

On Saturday, Feb. 1, KDVS will celebrate 50 years of free-form radio with a special event featuring live music, interviews with staff and DJs, and a special appearance by Mr. Turntable Head.
The free event will run from 9 p.m. to midnight at 720 Olive Drive, Suite H, and will be broadcast live on 90.3 FM and online at kdvs.org.
On Feb. 1, 1964, radio station KCD made its first broadcast from the laundry room of Beckett Hall at UC Davis. The station broadcast on the AM band via the phone lines and could be received only in the dormitories. Four years later, the station received an FM license and officially became KDVS.
KDVS is free-form and listener-supported. Its primary mission is educational: to play the music that doesn’t get played on commercial radio. It covers every genre of music, including genres you never knew existed. Its 13,000-watt transmitter makes it one of the most powerful college radio stations in the country.
In 2013, KDVS purchased a new transmitter and antenna, expanding its coverage area by 50 percent to cover most of Sacramento. This was a 10-year project that required the combined efforts of a team of five former general managers to overcome the various technical, financial and legal challenges.
