Kiss: The Beat of the UK - Introduction

Updated on December 6, 2017

What's Kiss all about?

Kiss is a British radio station which began broadcasting on October 1985. It has since become London's best dance music station providing a fun platform which accompanies the UK through the day and all the night with the most awesome and massive tunes around from the world of hip-hop, RnB, garage, house, dance, alternative, urban and electronic music. Kiss also has specialist programs dedicated to grime, drum/bass and underground music, most of them are mixed.

Kiss has two spin-off services: Kisstory, playing old-school and anthems; and KissFresh, playing non-stop new music.

The most well-known programs on KISS include:

Rickie, Melvin and Charlie in the Morning. The perfect morning show for you with the best tunes and funniest lolz around! Catch them weekdays 6 to 10 a.m.

Live@Kiss with Alex and Andrea. London's number one drivetime show with the promise to play more music than any other drive shows. Weekdays 3 to 7 p.m.

Friday and Saturday Night Kiss. No better way to kick off your weekend than the two most well-known mixshows in the UK. Who doesn't know Billy Da Kid, Steve Smart, Alex and Andrea, Justin Wilkes, Charlie Hedges and Danny Lee from these shows? These are all about non-stop bangers mixed live until midnight, then they transmit into a more house/electronic format and less commercials. Friday 5 p.m. to 4 a.m. and Saturday 6 p.m. to 4 a.m.

Kiss Hip-Hop. Tiffany Calver (1st hour) and Shortee Blitz and DJ MK (2nd hour) spins the biggest Hip-Hop tunes. Tuesday midnight to 2 a.m.

Kiss Jams. This is when DJ Swerve mixes the biggest old-school, slow jamz and RnB music. Airing 4 a.m. on a Sunday morning and midnight on a Monday morning, this is the most listened to program in London at these two slots.
