Bonus! Guest Contributor Post - KZOK

My buddy Dan Sys in Vancouver was kind enough to send one of his many radio stickers along with a bit of station information. Take it away Dan...

Z Rock 1590 is KZOK Seattle from 1990. At that time they split away from a KZOK 102.5 simulcast and carried the syndicated Z-Rock programming from Dallas. That lasted a few years until they became KPOZ with a "positive" Christian format. Today they are KLFE (K-LIFE) with a mixture of Russian programming and Christian Talk. Call letters and formats before the KZOK days included KQUL (Oldies), KJET (Alternative), KUUU (Oldies), KSND (Top 40), KETO (MoR) and originally signing on as KTIX back in the late 50's.

Greg here again. I remember Z Rock very well from listening to Cincinnati's affiliate which came in strong in Dayton. One of my favorite bits was when they played songs backwards or sped up and you had to guess what it was. It was the glory days of hair metal and these guys played it all. By the way, "Hey Stoopid" refers to the album by that name that Alice Cooper released in 1991.
Thanks Dan!
