106.1 KHKS

Dallas Composite | November, 1992

Here’s a short composite of the Dallas/Ft. Worth market in the Fall of 1992. Contributor Marc Viquez writes: This was the first time visiting Dallas, Texas; I was in town for a week for my mother’s teacher’s convention. I found that the city had some great CHR radio stations: Y95 and 97.1 KEGL. They also had 100.3 Jamz, whiched seemed to be leaning towards CHR/Rythmic.

If you enjoyed what Kiss-FM Dallas sounded like in the early 90s, you’ll really love this trip down memory lane to a not-so-long ago time when nights on the radio were still fun to listen to!
