12/19: THE ORIGINAL MERRY KISSMAS RADIO SPECIAL IS TONIGHT/THIS WEEKEND! DINGBATZ TMS PARTY TONIGHT, MORE
Year end special #2 and one I have been doing for decades debuts tonight on Q104.3 NYC and WAAF Boston at 11P ET. The Original Merry KISSmas special in on! 3 hours of all Kiss. ALL eras, ALL lineups, as it has ALWAYS been. This year I did a special set of all Kiss ballads to close the show. Over the years we have had guests on and also done wall to wall music. Always a hard decisions since in specials like these I find people want as many tunes as they can get around the holidays. So it’s wall to wall Kiss songs this year. As I have always said, regardless of whatever real or perceived drama is out there with me and Kiss, I will always be a fan first and foremost. Even if I’m not down with everything they have done (and who truly loves everything any band has done?) it doesn’t change the fact that this bands music was a huge part of my life and my gateway into hard rock. I’ve said many times if certain members of Kiss refuse to do my shows that is their prerogative and life goes on. But that has never clouded my support of playing ALL eras of their music since I started in radio in 1983, and dedicating complete radio shows to them around Christmas. So tonight it’s KISSmas again with the shows debut in NYC and Boston markets and then heard on all other affiliates over this weekend on the usual stations at the usual dates and times. Please remember most stations also stream so you can tap into the show that way also. Q104.3 streams free via www.q1043.com or with the iHeartradio app. WAAF streams free at www.waaf.com . From the 1974 all the way through Monster, enjoy my KISSmas special this weekend and Merry Christmas and happy holidays to all!
Next weekend is the Holiday Rush all Rush special!
If in NJ myself, Don & Jim will be hosting our annual Christmas party at Dingbatz in Clifton tonight. Live music and more. Come celebrate with us! We will be there around 9, music starts at 7. This is always a blast!
