This is weird! My wife told me just LAST NIGHT that she read on the internet that Kiss 105.5 was infact moving to 95.9? Here it has a listing of future shows coming up involving sports. So which is it I wonder??? I don;t know why, but ever since Clear Channel took over, I believe it was Cumulus, they have not been able to maintain a stable radio environment even when the radio show seemed to be successful!
