KCAQ, also known as Q-104.7, is a Rhythmic Top 40 outlet serving the Ventura County, California area. They also cover nearby Santa Barbara County, California. The station, whose frequency is 104.7 MHz with an effective radiated power of 5.1 kW, is owned by Gold Coast Broadcasting LLC and its city of license is Oxnard, California.

KCAQ originally started out as a mainstream Top 40 in 1983, but by the early 1990s it shifted to a Rhythmic Top 40 direction. It still continues that direction today.

KCAQ's musical fare includes R&B/Hip-Hop, Dance and Rhythmic Pop hits.

Prior to becoming KCAQ (originally known as Q-105 when it was mainstream), the station was easy listening KACY-FM. Prior to 1978, the station was soft rock KPMJ (known as K-105). It was one of the first FM stations to go on the air in the Oxnard/Ventura radio market, having signed on in 1962 as KAAR.

The original Q105 on-air staff included E. Curtis Johnson in mornings, Johnny Dolan was the 1st program director in middays, followed by Brian Thomas in afternoons who later replaced Johnny as PD. Nights were hosted by Gwen Johnson and later Famous Amos who pulled an amazing 80% share of teens and Jay Porter hosted late nights. Q105 was an immediate ratings success climbing to #1 with double digit ratings in both the Arbitron and Birch ratings reports. Harold A. Frank was one of the partners of KCAQ and its first general manager.
