KGMG (106.3 FM, "Mega 106.3 and 104.9") is a commercial radio station located in Oracle, Arizona, broadcasting to the Tucson, Arizona area. KGMG airs a rhythmic oldies music format which it launched in 1999 and uses the slogan "Tucson's Old School and R&B". The slogan was added to the station's imaging in July 2007. KGMG also simulcasts on K285DL, a translator signal located in Tucson, Arizona on 104.9 FM.

History

KGMG goes back to the mid-1980s when KTTZ went on the air at 103.1, displacing K276AL which was a translator for KUAT-FM, that moved to 89.5 before the station went on the air. Once on the air it took an eclectic view of rock music, which lasted until August 31, 1997. The next day KHYT moved from 1330 to 103.1 and switched to a classic rock format. That didn't last and in May 1998 they adopted the calls KAWV and the imaging for Los Angeles' KTWV including the slogan 'The Wave'.

Soon that was gone and it went through several other formats and calls. Eventually a frequency swap involving moving the 103.1 frequency to Florence Arizona placed them on the current 106.3 frequency and they got a power increase as well.

As to the 101.7 translator, that was either eliminated or displaced when KCMT first went on the air at 101.9. KGMG got the 104.9 translator sometime around or after that time.

The current format is an outgrowth of the previous format, urban AC, and they took a more classic soul/AC approach following the change of format from rhythmic oldies to 'La Preciosa' at what is now 97.1 KTZR.
