106.9 KSES / 94.3 K232CX / 103.9 K280CV

KSES (Kiss-FM) – Palm Springs, CA (surrounding area) – 8/29/97

Recorded 16 years ago today (on a Labor Day Weekend road trip from Phoenix to Los Angeles), this is a sample of a station that served the area around Palm Springs, CA. “Kiss-FM” originated on KSES 106.9 FM in Yucca Valley, with translators on K232CX 94.3 FM in Desert Hot Springs and K280CV 103.9 FM in Cathedral City. The format was essentially an unfocused but entertaining form of Rhythmic AC, with a Soft AC-ish presentation.

I seem to recall hearing that the station was forced to change its name due to its proximity to 102.7 KIIS-FM in Los Angeles; can anyone confirm/deny this?

  4. 106.9 KSES was around from 1996 until February 1998 according to Wikipedia. It’s now KDGL.

  5. KSES was originally a Soft A/C AM day timer, licensed in the early 80’s to Yucca Valley, CA.

    I was the original Program Director.
