History:
Signed on in 1994 with the same calls, always as "Kiss 102.7" with an upbeat format.  Despite being licensed to a town in Alabama, has always played to the I-20 corridor towns in Georgia of Bremen, Tallapoosa and Carrollton.  In May 2014, the station received a permit to change facilities to a location east of the AL/GA line, with a little less power and a directional antenna.  In October 2014 the permit was modified to drop the directional antenna, lower power from 1.5 to 1 kW while maintaining the same antenna height.  That facility was finally put on the air in the spring of 2017.
