Closed in 1983, Cal Poly Pomona's student run radio station KCPK (broadcasted on channel 830 AM) embodied the spirit of the university's learn-by-doing approach.

The radio station, which broadcasted Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., played the hits of the era, including “Mr. Bojangles” by the Nitty Gritty band. Unfortunately KCPK is not around to bring students the “jams,” but its spirit will live on in any Bronco who still loves to boogie.
