Kiss-108 wants to know, what did YOU DO last Summer?
It seems that every decade, the trends in popular music rotate back to rock before rotating around to R&B, Hip Hop or whatever today’s stuff is called. 1998 saw so much current Rock product that even an heritage Rhythmic CHR like Kiss-108 was playing a LOT of Rock based music in rotation.
Commercial free Kiss hours (which meant about seven minutes of commercials when the commercial free hour was done), personalities that were still allowed to speak and a heritage format kept Kiss 108 FM on top in the Boston market even during the late 90s.
