98.7 WRKS “Kiss-FM” New York Says Goodbye, Part 1 | April 29, 2012

The final broadcast of New York’s Kiss-FM starts here. The ‘tape’ rolls at about 9:55 AM at the start of Kiss-FM’s “Open Line”, normally a community affairs program where the hosts take calls, however, this program, being the final one on 98.7, is different. The hosts are taking the opportunity to say goodbye, and open up the lines to chat with listeners.

This is long, running almost 2 and a half hours, partly scoped only to remove the few whole songs and full stop sets. Listen, as some of these callers voice their anger at 98.7 being changed to ESPN!

The history of 98.7 in New York is long and full of twists. We have many airchecks of this station over the years, Click this link to surf our selections from its time as 99X WXLO.
