CBS currently owns 3 FMs in Dallas. And every TV broadcaster is 3 'stations'. Licensure regulations change. A lot. Some might say, not always for better.

The current Columbia Broadcasting station in San Fran is KCBS/740, which comes booming down the coast every evening, like it was a local. KYA (1260 KC, "the boss of the bay") is still active on the internet, and plays continual '50's-'60's oldies and period commercials.

I found a list of all Stations in California in 1928.
https://www.radioheritage.net/Story130.asp

=======================================================================
San Francisco also had KGO and KPO and both of them were on the NBC network in 1928.

"Since 1927, NBC had been operating its Pacific Coast “Orange” Network from San Francisco, recreating its New York “Red Network” programs and feeding them to seven western stations (KPO and KGO in thw Bay Area, KFI Los Angeles, KOMO Seattle, KGW Portland and KHQ Spokane)."

This tells me it was not unusual for a radio network to have two stations in one city during this era.
