If I remember correctly, KRPW and KRWP were both used as calls during this station’s life.
KRPW was never the legal id assigned to the station. 97.5 went from KAYD-FM to KKTT when it began the move-in process to KRWP to KIOL and now KFNC.
KRPW was used on air as unofficial calls. I don’t ever recall hearing an actual KKTT legal ID. It would be a few weeks before they were assigned the KRWP calls.
