Top Ten Tuesday: KTKS (106.1 FM, Dallas TX), 11/8/1985

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.

Confused yet? Anyway, they were a Top 40/contemporary hits radio station 37 years ago today. Here’s their Top Ten from that date.

  1. ABC, “Be Near Me”
  2. Glenn Frey, “You Belong To The City”
  3. Loverboy, “Lovin’ Every Minute Of It”
  4. Ready For The World, “Oh Sheila”
  5. Phil Collins and Marilyn Martin, “Separate Lives”
  6. Starship, “We Built This City”
  7. Mr. Mister, “Broken Wings”
  8. Tears For Fears, “Head Over Heels”
  9. Stevie Wonder, “Part Time Lover”
  10. Jan Hammer, “Miami Vice Theme”

And that’s Top Ten Tuesday for November 8, 2022.

  1. Yes, loving some of these songs but never heard of the 1st song that was new. I had ro laugh at yhe Loverboy video because I have been in bars where they had acts like that one shown. They are normally..not that great. Nice eclectic mix here.


    1. Funny, I was familiar with the first one after I listened to it. I just never knew the name or the band. And I’ve been in hundreds of hotel lounges that had bands like the one in the Loverboy video, and the bands in a few of them were actually pretty good, but they were the exception, not the rule.
