History

The station came on the air in 1985 as KZAM-FM with an adult album alternative format. In late 1988, KZAM-FM changed to a satellite-fed “Pure Gold” Oldies format. In 1990, new owners changed the call letters to KAVE and started a new adult album alternative format as “95.3 The KAVE.” In 1993, the format changed to the satellite-fed “Z-Rock” simulcasting with AM 1320 KZZK. 95.3's call letters were changed to KZZK-FM. In 1995, the format changed to alternative rock as “New Rock 95.3 NRQ” with new call letters KNRQ-FM. In 2001, after KNRQ's format and call letters moved to 97.9 (the former KKTT) the station changed to Eugene's Smooth Jazz, 95.3 KUJZ. In 2004, it changed to country as “95.3 The Moose” with a jock-less approach. In 2009, KUJZ dropped country and picked up AM 1320 KSCR's sports format.
