KTWV "The Wave"
   Several eras of the music newsletter and mailer from Los Angeles' "Smooth Jazz" station
The Wave is often regarded as the first "Smooth Jazz" station in the United States and it started on.February 14, 1987 when the station changed to a new age music/soft rock/contemporary jazz format. In its second year, it introduced the MusicLetter of which we have obtained numerous issues.
In the early 1990s, the station moved to more of a Smooth jazz sound, yet played a mix of smooth jazz, soft R&B hits, AC songs, and some soft rock hits.
