Description: KCSB-FM (91.9 FM) is a joint student and community radio station located on the UC Santa Barbara campus that prides itself on having unique programming and no advertising. It has a range that reaches as far south as Los Angeles County and as far north as San Luis Obispo, California.This section does not cite any references or sources.Please help improve this article by adding citations to reliable sources.

(June 2008)KCSB was started as Navajo Radio (named for the former college team mascot) in 1962, broadcasting 3 – 4 hours of daily programming to the UCSB dorms. It was the first University of California station to be licensed. It gradually grew in to the station it is today, changing frequency in 1976 and undergoing wattage expansions in 1964 and 1983. On April 18, 1970, KCSB was shut down by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department. The department took the measure as a precaution against rioting, which they felt would occur if the UCSB and Isla Vista community became aware of the events of the Isla Vista riots, an outgrowth of anger originating with the Vietnam War that was ignited by the firing of a popular professor. The incident is the only one on record of a police force shutting down a radio station. In 1989 the station was embroiled in a controversy revolving around the dismissal of volunteer host Sean Hannity for featuring a guest who made offensive remarks about homosexuals. The Santa Barbara chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union defended Hannity's right to free speech, and the station offered Hannity his slot back. He did not accept the offer, instead demanding more airtime.
