More informationConstruction of KECG began in 1972 in the basement of the north wing of the old El Cerrito HS. Mr Maynes woodshop built the studios and the electronics dept under Elmer Peterson installed the electronics.
Originally, KECG was supposed to broadcast "elevator" style music.
Several years delayed activation of the transmitter. Educational station KQED objected to KECG going on the air stating that "They should broadcast over the telephone line". Local ABC news anchor Van Amberg was quite helpful, having continued his FCC certification even after moving from engineering to on-air talent.
By the time KECG began broadcasting, the "elevator" music format plan had been dropped.
After Elmer Peterson died, control of KECG moved from the Industrial Arts division to a more journalistic control. Later, the old campus was demolished and new studios are located on the 2nd floor of the main building of the new campus.
