Q 96.3 FM traces its DNA from a skeletal structure built by Ozzy Osbourne and Guns & Roses, while the core muscle of our music playlist is heavily built on 90’s hit makers like Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, and Stone Temple Pilots.
We then reach forward embracing newer acts like Greta van Fleet, Bad Wolves, and Disturbed. DNA really is the perfect word to describe the thread that binds together Q 96.3 FM's tremendous variety in texture and era with the strength and balance of familiarity.
The Q is also Carlsbad's local sports station. Broadcasting caveman and cavegirl sports for over 40 years.
