History[change | change source]
In 1971, KRHM changed its name to KKDJ. It changed to a top 40 music format, playing the most popular songs. For a short time, in 1975, KHRM tried an "adult contemporary" or soft rock format. However, it was not successful.
The station changed its name to KIIS-FM in 1975. It went back to broadcasting top 40 music. The name KIIS sounds like the word "kiss". However, the name of the station has nothing to do with kissing. It is spelled with two letter I's instead of two letter S's. This is because the station took its name from its former AM radio sister station — a station that is owned by the same company. The other KIIS station was located at 1150 AM; "115" looks like "IIS".
