Kiss started in 1985 as a pirate radio station broadcasting across the London area under the slogan Radical Radio. It’s now a legal station, owned by Bauer Radio, and broadcasts more widely to a 4.5 million weekly audience with the slogan The Best of the UK. It focuses on dance and urban music and also has some specialist programmes.
Kiss broadcasts on FM across London, the Severn Estuary, Bristol and East Anglia on frequencies in the 97.2-107.7 MHz range. It’s also broadcast on DAB across the UK and is available via the internet as well as on Sky, Virgin Media and Freeview channels. It can, therefore, be accessed using most radios, including car radios, as well as mobile devices and TVs.
