Cat power

KZAP Takeover


There are few iconic images that conjure Sacramento: the Capitol’s dome, the Tower Records logo and … the KZAP cat. This kitty smiled knowingly from many a T-shirt and car window in the ‘70s and ‘80s, it’s image signifying a fan of KZAP 98.5 FM, a rock station which broadcasted from 1968 to 1992. And now the cat is back, this time on the air on UC Davis’ KDVS 90.3 FM. For 48 continuous hours, starting at 6 a.m. on Thursday, November 8, (listen to it by radio or the station’s online stream) deejays from the late ‘60s and early ‘70s-era glory days of KZAP will duplicate the iconic station’s free-form playlist and recount stories. Tune in and turn on.
