History and Design

“In some ways, the station is a little ahead of its time.”

Wild Bill Goldsmith

On August 2, 1995, KPIG became the first radio station in the world to stream its audio over the Internet. Since that groundbreaking moment it’s been streaming continuously. www.kpig.com is the online presence for the Triple A FM radio station KPIG 107.5 in Freedom, California about 90 miles south of San Francisco. Although broadcasting at a meager 2,850 watts (a standard corporate-owned radio station in an urban market is between 50,000 and 100,000 watts), KPIG regularly gets high ratings (based on the Arbitron rating system) in the “Adult 25-54” market. Unlike 90% of the Triple A radio market, KPIG’s DJs actually select the music. The station has a decidedly local feel to its programming, with an accent on local events and resources.
