Many think the 1990’s were the first big heyday for KISW. Wrong! The 1980’s were as big as the Seattle Coliseum for KISW. Artists like Van Halen, Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, AC/DC, The Scorpions, ZZ Top, Motley Crue, and Ozzy Osbourne ruled the universe, your radio dial was set to 99.9 FM and your remote clicked to MTV!
Friday, August 8th, KISW brings you Dude It’s The 80’s Day!
Starting at 6am with the BJ Shea Morning Experience all the way through Jolene’s Big Rock Show, we celebrate the decade of decadence in all its glory! We will be scrolling through the KISW archives and posting great pictures of KISW, the bands, the shows, the stickers, the t-shirts, and much more via the KISW Instagram page.
What pairs perfectly with Dude It’s The 80’s Day on KISW? Sunshine, cold beer, bikinis and YOU, Rockaholics! You can also text us any time with your Dude It’s The 80’s requests. Just text “Dude” along with your name and request to 77999! And don’t forget about Dude It’s The 80’s on weeknights at 8pm and on Sundays from 7am - 12pm! To get you amped for the day check out this Dude It's The 80s Playlist.
Turn it on and RIP OFF THE KNOB!!!! (Hey, there were radio knobs in the 80’s yo!)
