Kiss FM was once an excellent radio station. Unlike most other UK radio stations, it stayed away from pure pop, and generally played a mix of hip hop, RnB, not-so-pop Pop and a little bit of rap. It wasn't the most popular station around and I enjoyed listening to it as I hat pure pop (steps, britney etc). Now however, Kiss has become the most popular station in London, and it has been going downhill ever since. Kiss seemed to have realised that there are more townies in London that prefer pop to their current listeners. Slowly they introduced DJs which were pro pop. First things weren't so bad, the pop didn't creep to the level of boy bands. Garage also started to appear, which wasn't too bad. Now however, 99% of the time they play pop. You wouldn't be suprised for britney and n sync to shoe their faces. There is however one thing which has managed to keep kiss in my good books - and that is smooth grooves. Monday to Thursday after 10pm smooth grooves comes on. This is a carefully selected blend of RnB, hip hop and light rap. This strays towards the likes busta rhymes, missy, mya, pink, sometimes destinies child (yes, in england thats RnB) and regretably D-12, who together with Eminem have screwed up the rap world. Regretably smooth grooves don't play as much quality rap as they used to, but it's still a good show. And now, more recently, Smooth grooves is also on on sundays from 6pm to 8pm, so that everyone can listen.
