San Joaquin County Genealogy Databases





        An effort is underway to make even more online data available FREE to researchers. Your data or typing skills can enhance this project. Your help is needed. We have materials that need transcribing. Also, when you survey a cemetery, transcribe a will, a deed, a letter, or any other non-copyrighted document, please consider donating a text copy via e-mail to the San Joaquin County's Golden Nugget Library. The more that we share our information, the more that we will all learn about our ancestors. If you have any data you are willing to share or help transcribe, please contact Nancy Pratt Melton.

Stockton Radio Station KJQ History - Photo 1
  Photo 2  (Donated by Glen Pitts www.kjq.us.com - Thanks!)
Nearly a century ago, KJQ became America's 22nd radio station and was licensed to Stockton, California. On December 20, 1921, Clarence O. Gould was the license holder for the radio station and also operated "Gould, The Light Store", both occupying space at 615 East Main Street, telephone #383. Gould sold radio sets, appliances, electric fixtures and gas/gasoline lights.

KJQ operated on an assigned frequency of 833KC with an output power of 100 watts and could be heard from a distance of 75-100 miles. During its final months of operation, the station was reassigned to a frequency of 1100KC. Station manager and on air personality, D. W. Horstmeyer, aired news and music each week day from 5:00-5:30 PM, music on Wednesday and Sunday from 10:00-11:00 AM and church services on Sunday. Popular music genres during this era were orchestral, dance orchestra, popular instrumental and jazz.

In April of 1925, KJQ's license was deleted from the roster of radio stations, with its successor, KWG remaining on the air to this date.
