Clay Freinwald posed the question in his October blog post. The answer: KISW. The Oldest FM station in the Seattle market. This according to CJ Skreen, of the Seattle Times, in an article written in 1961. https://pugetsound.media/pictures/June%2025%201961%20-%20FM%20Guide-4.pdf
Oldest FM station in Seattle? 1947 article in Seattle Times mentions these stations. https://pugetsound.media/wp-content/uploads/2020/10/1947FMRadioforSeattle.pdf and I believe that was the Bullitt station KING and of course KOMO
Further research shows that KISW didn’t go on the air until 1950. So, I am betting on KOMO, which had an FM very early on and later dropped it and donated the equipment to KUOW. My final answer: KOMO FM
I should have checked our own pages here. https://pugetsound.media/2019/01/04/wash-fm-stations-applications-1947/

Turning back your clocks and adding one hour to 2020 is like getting a bonus track on a Yoko Ono album.
Now that would be good.
Happy 60th anniversary to Canada’s CHAN-TV, Ch. 8(Global TV)in Vancouver, Canada. The station that use to be know as BCTV.
I even remember when then Victoria sister-station CHEK 6 once ran an ad for Gull oil. Just when i thought they were based in Seattle, did they really have stations in B.C.?
