Sly Stone, KSOL San Francisco | 1967

KSOL (the original incarnation) was an AM station in San Francisco on 1450. AM 1450 was known as KSAN until July 1964, when the KSOL calls were first used. As KSAN, the station had devoted much time to ‘soul’ music, and the change to KSOL meant a change to full time Soul music as a 24/7 format, the first such format in America.
