100.7 KHYS “Kiss-FM” Abilene TX | January 27, 2002

Apparently recorded in the wee hours of a Sunday morning, Kiss-FM is jockless for the first few minutes of this scope. The final breaks feature Kid Kelly’s syndicated “Backtracks USA” 80s flashback show.

KHYS here is typical of Clear Channel Communications’ Kiss-branded CHR stations. The playlist is a mainstream mix of R&B, Pop and Rock hits, with similar jingles and imaging to that of other CC CHR stations nationwide. This recording strongly illustrates the great effect that rapid consolidation had on the radio industry, only six years after the landmark Telecommunications Act of 1996 was enacted.

    Hey, if anyone can remember the name of the morning jock that was there when this station first signed on, please email. His cohost was Jada amd there was a weirdo named Chaz. But what was the name of the main jock? joe@93QClassic.com

    • Chaz

      Hey Joe…I’m the weirdo named Chaz you referred to….:) the name of the jock was Sam Stevens. Btw, we had jocks through the overnight hours, this particular scope was taken when we had a jock out.
