106.9

KHTT (106.9 K-HITS) – Tulsa, OK – 1/25/97 – Maverick

“The only Tulsa radio station broadcasting from a porta potty in Broken Arrow…”.  106.9 K-Hits was one of my favorite CHRs of the mid-90’s. This montage was recorded a few months after the station moved back into a Mainstream CHR direction (with a Rhythmic lean), following a few years as an Adult CHR.

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?

KHTT (106.9 K-Hits) – Tulsa – 7/5/98 – Grove Budda

“Broadcasting from a porta potty in Broken Arrow…”.  106.9 K-Hits was one of my favorite CHRs of the mid-90′s.  After longtime ownership by Renda Broadcasting, the station was just sold to Journal Broadcast Group.
