Mars 103,1 FM (KSRF Santa Monica/KOCM Newport Beach) is an older cousin to Groove 103,1. Mars began as a station on 21 May 1991 and lasted about a year and a half. The station played new wave artists like Depeche Mode and Pet Shop Boys, dance such as Rosalla, and some early electronica/techno. Mars 103,1 was an unique station...some information about the station is given below to remind us of its short but memorable experience.
