Description: KSCA is a commercial radio station in Glendale, California, broadcasting to the Los Angeles, California, area on 101.9 FM. As of 2007 KSCA is the most listened to radio station in the Los Angeles Metro Area.KUTE 101.9 was one of Los Angeles' first fm radio stations, going on the air with a very formal Big Band format. During the 1960's, the studios were located on the 32nd floor of Occidental Center, on Hope St., downtown Los Angeles. Here, during the earthquake of 1969, the studios are said to have swayed 6 feet! It's air staff included Mike Parker and William H. Belter. 101.9 later became an R&B station known as KUTE 102 (and was once called "The Quiet Storm", a name that has been parodied by Tim Meadows on Saturday Night Live).In 1987, it changed call letters to KMPC-FM and played "Full Spectrum Rock", a mixture of classic rock, adult album alternative and progressive rock radio . Many of the DJs who were let go from the defunct KMET that same year could be heard again on this radio station, including Paraquat Kelley, Cynthia Foxx, Jim Ladd and J.J. Jackson, who was program director at this time. In March 1989, KMPC became "The Edge", and later changed its call letters to KEDG and played the same format until May 13, 1989, when the station became KLIT and adopted a soft AC format.KLIT remained on the air until July 1, 1994, when the station became KSCA, and adopted an adult album alternative ("AAA") format (and also featured the Dr. Demento show). It was known as "Southern California's Album Alternative" and later morphed into "LA's Finest Rock". Mike Morrison joined as Program Director from WXPN/Philadelphia. Nicole Sandler, formerly with KLOS and The Mark & Brian Show, joined for middays. The station later hired Chuck Moshontz, also from KLOS and paired him with Nicole to do mornings. After the first year, Nicole Sandler was promoted to Music Director. Others on the staff included Mimi Chen, Rich Guzman, Terry Gladstone, Anita Gevinson and Merilee Kelly. The KSCA Music Hall hosted live performances by dozens of artists who had their debuts there, and went on to superstardom, including the Dave Matthews Band. This format lasted until February 4, 1997, after new owners bought it and made it the Spanish-language station that it is today.When the station was sold to Hispanic Broadcasting Corporation (now Univision Radio) in 1997, it was the last station owned by Gene Autry's Golden West Broadcasters.KSCA's morning host, "Piolín" Sotelo, co-sponsored the massive immigration rally in Los Angeles on March 25, 2006, along with other local radio personalities like KLAX's "El Cucuy" Renán Almendaríz .
