In saying a big thank you for one year of loyalty and support, KISS 898 threw it’s ‘First Kiss’ anniversary party on August 13 at the North Lawn at Taj Samudra which featured UK DJ Anna Kiss.
KISS 898 is now one of Colombo’s most popular radio stations. The station sticks to high energy dance as its main format with experimentation carried out depending on listener feedback.
The rhythmic CHR station which has ‘kept it sweet and simple’ for a year now, brought down UK DJ Anna Kiss specially for the party which saw listeners and Colombo’s partiers coming together for one night of partying and celebration.
Having entered the radio station market despite the economic recession, KISS 898 have established themselves as Colombo’s leading and only station in it’s format playing a mix of dance, progressive house, electro, tribal, hip hop and even a little bit of R&B.
According to the KISS 898 management, the station entered the market at a crucial time to fill a void with dance music and has been welcomed with open arms by listeners in Colombo and it was incidentally timed with Colombo’s party scene which took off and has since continued to grow.
The station boasts five main programs on weekdays, namely Kiss Breakfast with Jake Sky, Kiss Konnect with Kisha Fox, Kiss Pick-up with Kiera Kay, Kash Love on Kiss Overdrive and Total Kiss with Kyler.
The KISS 898 management added that the party was more about listeners than about the station. Other events which KISS 898 was a part of during the month of August include the Hikka Beach Fest, Scintillate 2010.
The KISS Entourage is made up of DJ’s Jake Sky, Kisha Fox, Kiera Kay, Kash Love, Kyler, K-Sean Summers, Kit Ryder and Kaze. The station has been mixing up the airwaves and Colombo’s dance floors with a unique sound. Future plans include expanding frequencies beyond Colombo, franchising the KISS 898 brand with a foreign station and continuing to provide listeners more high quality entertainment. (KA)
