  1. KOLA

    KOLA is a commercial classic hits music radio station in San Bernardino, California, broadcasting to the Riverside-San Bernardino, California, area on 99.9 FM. KOLA was founded by Fred Cote, first owner and general manager. 99.9 FM originally signed on in 1959 as KFMW, with transmitter located on Box Springs Mountain southeast of Riverside, and "studios" in the Mission Inn in downtown Riverside. KFMW used an early Ampex automation system that was famous for ending one musical offering in the middle while starting another. Fred Coté bought the station sometime in 1968, and changed the call sign to KOLA and switched from KFMW's MOR/beautiful music format to an early Top 40 rock format, then something new in FM. Today the station broadcasts an oldies format, playing music from the 1960s and 70s. The only news of note about KOLA happened back around 1970, when its Harris transmitter was stolen by some local kids as a prank. KOLA's always-marginal signal was even worse for a number of days while on a rented temporary transmitter that was maybe capable of 5 KW. The original transmitter was recovered by the Riverside County Sheriff's Department and was returned to service. KOLA continues to broadcast from the same tower at the same 29,500 watts on its original license from 1959 as KFMW.
