KCSC premiered on March 14, 1951 as part of the Speech and Drama Department in what is now Ayers Hall as a radio drama on the campus public address system.

In the early 60s Chico State’s campus became another world after a handful of radio enthusiasts adopted KCSC and created the beginning of rock and roll radio in Chico. As the 70s hard-rock “thing” waned, KCSC listeners found a new friend in the Livewire — DJs who would always play their requests. Always a few steps ahead of the trend, KCSC was named “Best College Radio Station” in a 1987 SPIN survey.
