20 years ago, "Manchester's Essential Rhythm" Kiss 102 FM went on air in Manchester, and brought with it a completely new and unique sound to the FM dial in the city. The mixture of commercial and credible dance music of all genres was soon to be heard booming across the city in homes, shops, cars and just about anywhere with a radio. It was an integral part of the revitalisation of the city that began in the mid 90's and was the soundtrack to that amazing time.
Within a year of going on air, the station applied for and won the first regional radio licence in Yorkshire and in 1997, Kiss 105 was born. The small but successful group were sold to Chrysalis Radio later in 97, as the stations had proved there was a market for such a format in the North of England
To celebrate the anniversary, we are having our first reunion at Venus on their hugely successful Venus Classics night.. DJ's on the night all featured on 102 and 105 - Tony Walker, The Slammin' Boys, Nev Johnson, David Dunne, Rob Tissera and Graeme Park, all playing music from the Kiss era, plus we are also using the reunion to raise much needed cash for the Christie Hospital. Although the original Kiss listeners may have a few grey hairs these days, we hope to see them out at venus in November, and hopefully the new generation of clubbers will come and hear what made Kiss 102 and 105 so special.
