On January 11, 1986 at 6:00 PM, KMGG dropped its adult contemporary format, and became the first rhythmic contemporary-focused top 40 formatted radio outlet with the new call letters KPWR and the handle "Power 106, The Fresh New Music Mix." The first song on the newly christened "Power 106" was "Say I'm Your Number One" by Princess. At the time it broadcast what it announced as 72,000 Watts Of Music Power...Less Talk (mentioned in on-air station identifications by Chuck Riley and future WQHT jock herself Deborah Rath), a reference to its then-actual ERP of 72 kW (whose signal coverage can be heard in San Diego, Kern and Santa Barbara Counties), before their reduction to 25 kW in 1993.
