102.1 The Edge has been criticized by several of its listeners because the station plays a high number of classic alternative songs from the early 2000s and backwards. However, for nostalgic fans who enjoy songs from the 2000s, 1990s, and even earlier, this might not be such a bad thing!


How the Edge Stole Xmas was first launched in 2002. KDGE (also known as 102.1 The Edge) is owned and controlled by Clear Channel Communications. The station is known for consistently playing "alternative rock" songs. Created and managed from 1989 to 1994 by Wendy Naylor and George Gimarc, "The Edge" quickly attracted popularity around the local music scene in Dallas, becoming known as the only station in the area to play local and national "alternative" songs. Gimarc was responsible for designing the station's musical format, and served as its main DJ.

The station features a yearly music festival named Edgefest. Past performers at Edgefest include Pearl Jam, The Charlatans, Sugarcubes, Tripping Daisy, Seether, The Origin, Nickelback, Staind, My Chemical Romance, Muse, The Killers, Placebo, Kaiser Chiefs, Weezer, The Toadies, Blue October, INXS, Beck, Social Distortion, Everclear, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Default, KoRn, Deftones, Hole, Phoenix, The Black Keys, Cage the Elephant, Cake, Flogging Molly, and Drowning Pool. The inner workings of the first Edgefest were documented in the Jerry Lentz movie Angry Blue Planet.

The station's "unofficial" 20th Anniversary party took place on July 3, 2009, at the Lakewood Theatre, with performances by Zac Malloy of the Nixons, John Easdale of Dramarama, Deep Blue Something, Pop Poppins, and the Bat Mastersons.

The number of hard rock songs that used to play on this station has been reduced, due to the fact that sister station KEGL recently switched back to playing mainly active rock songs. Instead, 102.1 has started playing indie rock artists such as Kings Of Leon, Snow Patrol, and The Bravery, to name a few. In 2012, rock-heavy electronic songs by artists such as M83 and Alex Clare started garnering heavy airplay.

102.1 features a Saturday night electronic/dance music show called "Edgeclub" with DJ Merritt. On Sunday, it broadcasts "The Old School Edge" with Jeff K, "The Adventure Club" with Josh, and "The Local Show" with Mark, which plays music originally recorded in the Dallas/Ft. Worth metroplex. Due to the success of Flashback Café with Daniel, a program playing throwback songs, the station has been playing an increasing number of 1980s and 1990s songs as of late.

The 2009 lineup of How the Edge Stole Xmas included Breaking Benjamin, Papa Roach, Flyleaf, Dead By Sunrise, Sick Puppies, Janus, AFI, 30 Seconds to Mars, The Bravery, and Cage the Elephant. The 2012 lineup at How the Edge Stole Xmas featured Fun, Grouplove, Silversun Pickups, Passion Pit, Metric, The Joy Formidable, and IAMDYNAMITE. Head on over to see what these multi-talented performers have to offer when they perform on a big stage! Don't miss out on all the action and book your seats today!
