Actual Sticker Sighting / KZIA

Saw this sticker on the road the other day.  The decal was unique enough that I knew I had it in my collection but it was tough to ID because the "102.9" wasn't clearly visible.  After a little research of every "Z" branded station, I figured out it was from...

..."Z102.9" KZIA, a CHR station licensed to Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
