- This station was issued
an original construction permit in January of 2014 and filed a license
to cover exactly one year later, although it's reported they were on
as early as August of 2014. The programming is reported to be a
mix of Christian music and animal advocacy; the name of the station
comes from the owners' deceased pet cat, Flash.
On 21 August 2021, a tornado came through downtown Iuka, taking down
the station's tower. The station posted an update afterwards to
Facebook saying they would be off the air for the foreseeable future,
but was back on air just a week after the storm from a shorter wooden
pole on site.
In November 2022 it was reported that the station was back from a
newly built tower, although FCC filings don't indicate any
height/power/antenna changes during this entire period.
