In the spring of 1968, Lee Gahagen was approached by some students from Sacramento State University who worked at campus radio station KERS (90.7). They convinced Gahagen to run a “free form” radio station, similar to KMPX and KSAN in San Francisco.

Gahagen agreed, and, on November 8, 1968, radio station KZAP made its debut.
