However, on the drive home yesterday I was flipping around the dial and caught FM 106.5 from Sacramento. I grew up in Sacramento and have fond memories of this particular station.
- I remember the time a rival station, 102.5, was playing rap and hip hop and alternarock. At about the same time 102.5’s format went more towards the rap and hip hop while KWOD 106.5 went towards the grundge and alterna-rock scene.
- I remember a DJ on 106.5 who decided to play the entirety of U2‘s (then) newest album “Achtung Baby” start to finish without interruption at midnight the day that it was supposed to be released. He was doing this because for some reason the release date had been delayed a few days. I sat next to my stereo with a blank cassette so I could tape the entire album. That album was released on November 19, 1991.  This album was also one of the first prerecorded cassette tapes I ever owned. 
- I remember feeling a little sad and nostalgic when the morning duo jumped to another station, 100.5.
- I was listening to KWOD 106.5 when I learned that Kurt Cobain had committed suicide.
