Remembering The Essential Rhythm

Kiss 102 burst onto the Manchester airwaves on Sunday 16th October 1994 at 1.02pm and quickly established itself as the essential rhythm of Manchester. Its sister station Kiss 105 went on air on Friday 14th February 1997 and at the time had the largest transmission area of any UK independent local or regional radio station broadcasting across South & West Yorkshire from Leeds to Hull to Sheffield.

We’ve assembled a whole host of clips of both station’s programming which have been lovingly preserved by listeners and station presenters alike. You can also check out the history of these two revolutionary stations which influenced UK music radio forever.

Enjoy and remember Music is Life!
