During KFRC's seven-year run as Magic 61, the station itself underwent a significant change, becoming the final broadcast property in the RKO General stable to be sold. Bedford Broadcasting, owned by Peter Bedford, acquired KFRC from RKO General in April 1991 for $7,419,000. A few weeks prior to buying KFRC, Bedford had also purchased KXXX (99.7 FM) from NBC Radio, which he would transform into Oldies-formatted KFRC-FM.
The last voice heard on Magic 61 belonged to Clyde "Buddy" Hatton, a San Francisco native who had been a Top 40 disc jockey at the Bay Area's original Top 40 station, KOBY (1550 AM), in the mid-1950s. He later became part of 560/KSFO's stalwart air staff in the 1970s. Brian Winters is the first voice heard as the Oldies simulcast with 99.7 KFRC-FM begins on 610.
In April 2005, 610/KFRC was sold to Family Stations and began broadcasting Christian-oriented programming. On October 17, 2005, the KFRC call letters were removed from 610, and the station became KEAR.
