KISS-FM (99.5 FM) is a radio station broadcasting a mainstream rock format serving the San Antonio, Texas area. The Cox Radio outlet broadcasts at 99.5 MHz. KISS FM was originally a Show Tunes format which changed to a type of AOR (Album-Oriented Rock) in the late 1970s. The AOR format would last until May 1990 when KISS flipped to oldies known as 99.5 KISS oldies. The owners of KSMG Magic 105.3 - a competing Oldies station at the time - bought KISS-FM and KOOL 930 AM from Adams Broadcasting Corporation in November 1991 and simulcasted KSMG on both 99.5 and 930 AM. As of New Years Day of 1992, the rock music format was back on 99.5 KISS, now called 'Active Rock'. AOR was sometimes referred to as 'All Over (the) Road'. In the early years, KISS DJ's were given a free rein.
