Sacto: Birthday Flash

Even though it launched April 1, 2004, KXCL "Flash 103.9" celebrates its first anniversary tonight (5/4) with a concert by 80's soap star-turned-singer Rick Springfield. Tickets were still available as of early Wednesday for the 7:30pm show at the Radisson Hotel, and can be had through the station website at www.flash1039.com.

When launched with great fanfare, Flash gave away $10K in a "Name The 80s Station" contest at its introductory concert on March 31, 2004. Since then, and following great ratings success, cutbacks have reduced the staff of the station by almost half. Only Program Director Staci Anderson and PM Driver Keith Brooks remain from the original Flash crew.

Flash recently relocated its transmitter to Newcastle and reduced power to 6kw from its original 25kw. KXCL came to life as the FM sister of KUBA-AM Yuba City.
