The meaning of «kudl»

KUDL (106.5 FM) is a radio station in Sacramento, California. Owned by Audacy, Inc., it broadcasts a Top 40 (CHR) format branded as 106.5 The End, and is one of two Top 40s in Audacy's Sacramento cluster, the other being Rhythmic Top 40 KSFM. Its studios are located in Foothill Farms (with a Sacramento address) and its transmitter is in Folsom.

The 106.5 frequency in Sacramento signed on in 1957 with the call letters KJML, which adopted a number of format changes before settling with the beautiful music format, commonly identified as "instrumental elevator music."

Royce International Broadcasting headed by Edward R. Stolz II acquired the station in 1977 dropping the beautiful music format in favor of a soft rock/jazz music hybrid with a change of call letters to KWOD, named after quadrophonic sound, as the station was one of the first to experiment with the technology that never caught on. The initial format was programmed by Kevin Childs, who created the method of transitioning from rock to jazz via what was called "The Crossroads of Jazz". With no advertising of promotion, KWOD succeeded in achieving a dedicated following across the Sacramento Valley.

In the late 1970s, Royce Broadcasting decided to drop the adult contemporary/jazz hybrid music format in favor of a Top 40 music format.

By 1985, KWOD was the second rated station in the 12+ age demographic under the programming of Program Director Tommy "Tom" Chase and Music Director Edward "Mr. Ed" Lambert behind crosstown CHUrban powerhouse (and future sister station) FM 102. The popular morning show of this period was "The Doug Masters and Marty Johnson's Morning Radio Clinic Show" featuring Douglas "Doug" Masters and Martin "Marty" Johnson. Other jocks throughout the Tom Chase and Ed Lambert era included Dave Diamond, Dean Stevens, Dave Skyler, Paul Michaels, Gregory Lane, Melanie Evans, John Edwards, Panama Jack, Rick Foster, Russell "Russ" Martin, with Patrick "Pat The Night Hawk" Garrett, and Alexander Cosper. Tom left in late 1987 to program competitor KROY and Ed followed to become KROY's MD in early 1988.

In 1988 KWOD becomes Power Hits KWOD 106, the morning show became "The Tom Sterling and Terry Steele Morning Show" featuring Program Director Jeff Hunter (Terry Steele) and Charlie Simons (Tom Sterling) following the resignation of Marty Johnson, Doug Masters moved to middays. The rest of the full-time line-up of this period included Johnny "Jammin'" Edwards in middays, Panama Jack in afternoons, with Pat "The Night Hawk" Garrett in evenings, and Alex Cosper in late nights. Other jocks included Bill "Wild Bill" Shakespeare, Vincent "Vince" Simon, Rick Neal, with Rick Foster, and Rexton "Rex" McNeill did weekend overnights and was responsible for cleaning the KWOD 106's Power van after late night station parties. Tom and Terry left in 1989 to do mornings in San Jose and were replaced by a temporary irreverent show that failed called the Renegades.
