KTKS in Dallas, Texas is now KHKS, though both were called "Kiss FM" (not to be confused with KISS-FM 99.5 in San Antonio, Texas, which plays mainstream rock). It started as KDNT, playing various formats including rock, disco, oldies, and country, and went through a couple of call letter changes before becoming KTKS, "Kiss 106," in 1984. In 1987, it changed to KOAI, "The Oasis," playing smooth jazz, and in 1992 KOAI moved to 107.5 and "Kiss FM" returned to 106.1, this time with the call letters KHKS.
