The Wikipedia entry for what is now KLOO in Corvallis, Oregon says that 106.1 FM KFAT was on the air from 1983 to 1997.  But was this Oregon KFAT related at all to the original, legendary 94.5 KFAT from Gilroy, California?  The years seem to line up since the one in Gilroy flipped to CHR as KWSS in '83, the same year the one in Oregon went on the air.  Both were Country stations but not just any Country--free form progressive country mixed with Blues, Bluegrass, Rock and what would now be called Americana.  If anyone has any more info about the possible connection between these two fatties, leave a comment.
