History

The radio station was hugely popular playing top 40 music in the 1960s as KMEN, K/men 129, and battled crosstown rival KFXM (AM) (590) for ratings. A number of radio personalities, who were later heard in San Diego and Los Angeles, were featured on KMEN. These include, but are not limited to, Johnny Darin, Huckleberry Chuck Clemens (great grandson of famed author Mark Twain)[1], William F. Williams, Jim Mitchell, Harry Scarborough, Bruce Chandler, Mark Denis and Dave Sebastian. Before it joined Radio Disney in 2001, this AM outlet (still as KMEN) played a variety of formats, including adult standards, oldies and talk. When the Oakland Raiders played in Los Angeles, KMEN was the Inland Empire affiliate.

On March 10, 2008, KMEN returned as an internet only station as www.kmen129.com.
