OMG, they brought KDAY back and on the FM to boot. Preliminary report: came on on 9/20/04, playing classics and current, no commercials or DJs yet. (thus far, Programming has been excellent) may be a slick marketing stroke of genius using "KDAY" as a name and not necessarily the call letters. not sure, may be brodcasting out of redondo beach. KDAY OMG. oh yeah, the part you need to know. 93.5 FM .
