Logan's show gets cut to an hour

22 posts in this topic

We, as specialist DJs at Kiss, were recently made aware that as of January 4th there will be sweeping changes to the Kiss fm evening schedule.The long and the short of it is that every show in the 11-1 timeslot will now start at midnight and finish at 1. All shows will only be 1 hour long. Several DJs have been let go as you may have heard if you listened to Jay Cunning's Breakbeat show after mine last night.As you can imagine this has come as a bit of a shock to all of the Kiss DJs. The shift of focus away from upfront specialist music to more playlisted hours is one which the management feel will enable the station to compete with the likes of Capital and Galaxy fm and with Swerve's show now starting an hour later at 10pm all of the genre specific late night shows took the brunt of the hit.The main effect this will have on my show is that it will reduce the number of records I can physically play in half. As it is an already difficult task juggling the established names with the exciting new talent coming through, this will prove a big hindrance. However, hopefully it will cause artists to rediscover the many other platforms we have for promotion, namely regular pirate radio appearances which I personally believe is something which has been lost on the current generation of acts who have grown up in a recording booth, not in a radio studio or rave.

Joke thing is, for his type of set and at the time it's aired, swear he got the most listeners?Probably why they kept him and got rid of other DJs.

Wow, bad move by Kiss.I'd urge everyone to try and listen to kiss from say 10 am through to 3 PM one day. You'll here the same 20 tracks on rotation, very boring stuff. I can't believe that they're moving away from specialist music to commercial stuff. sh*t is boring, it won't make them any different from the other stations.
