Will Get Fooled Again: KFJC Pulls Another Elaborate April Fools' Day Prank

If you happen to be driving in the Bay Area today with the radio on and you tune into 89.7FM expecting to hear the usual excellent alternative radio programming of beloved South Bay college radio station KFJC in Los Altos Hills but instead hear Sting or Phil Collins or a drop for "The New KFJC + plus" format of "The Hits of the 80's, 90's, and Today" and you think: A) you're losing your mind, or B) the award-winning station out of Foothill College has followed the tragic path of University of San Francisco radio station KUSF and had their license sold out from under them to make way for some generic commercial entity, fear not. Don't even let the Geico or Cialis commercials or the above elaborately customized "new" KFJC format homepage catch you off guard. The "new" format is merely the latest elaborate April Fools' Day prank by the ever-innovative radio station that a few years ago on April 1st switched broadcast signals with WFMU New Jersey for the day. 

Tune in here online
or on your radio at 89.7FM, or call into the studio line today only at (650) 941 2500 and request some more Elton John, Lady Gaga, Kenny Loggins, or Mariah Carey.
