We'll it's been a week of posting and recording airchecks of the final 2 days of "Kiss-FM" 98.7 last weekend, so I decided to go back and post a couple of last shows that are on 98.7. Here they are.
Here is Bugsy doing his final show on WRKS' "Kiss-FM" from last Saturday started at the 3 PM slot, this one is in 2-parts.

After that, at the 10 PM hour, Cool DJ Red Alert doing his final show on "Kiss-FM" last Saturday with the "Thank You Mixtape" where it has disco and hip-hop classics rolled into one. Many of you people who posted on one of the threads, so here it is once again!http://www.mediafire.com/?85v4ngw5j3w72el
At Midnight, WRKS "Kiss-FM" also did an all-night live show at a club in New Jersey where they did their final show for two hours with DJ Qua on the turntables. Along with that including Lenny Green, Sheila, and a few others from the station who throws out a farewell party. This aircheck was edited, because the stream when I was using TuneIn app cuts off in the middle, so I decided to edited out for most of the aircheck. Here it is.http://www.mediafire.com/?ua68l4ip7r508c2
At 2 AM, WRKS also did their final show on "Kiss-FM" called "Kiss Club Classics" and it continued to party until 4:30 AM. This aircheck was heavily edited, because it ran out of tape while I was sleeping, I got up at 4:15 AM to check to see if the tape ran out and turned it over and hear the last minutes of the final "Kiss Club Classics" show. Here it is.http://www.mediafire.com/?69cpucie6dnlv4h
The next day, 10 AM, Bob Slade and the rest of the gang hosted the last "Open Line" show on "Kiss-FM" 98.7, it was a call-in talk show where it was about what was going on the urban community. On this final "Open Line", they were talking about WRKS "Kiss-FM" and the station that has been part of NY radio for 30 years. The guests on that show are Lenny Green, Sheila, Bugsy and the rest of the crew talks about the history of the station and the ratings. Enjoy it in 2 parts.

After that special "Open Line" show, it's time for Felix Hernandez at the 1 PM hour for his final "Rhythm Revue" show on "Kiss-FM" last Sunday. This is the complete show in 2-parts, one of the people who posted the last 45 minutes of the final show is in better quality, but this one is the entire 4-hour show with some edits. Felix Hernandez will also be heard on WBLS starting tomorrow at noon right before Hal Jackson and the "Sunday Classics" show, and also heard Saturdays at 10 AM on WBGO. Enjoy while you can.

And then, Andre Harrel also did his final show for "Kiss-FM" entitled "Bubbles & Champagne" playing all your favorite slow jams past and present. This was heard during the 6 PM hour and this one is his last show. Enjoy!http://www.mediafire.com/?z1vazu6mtdyfxuh
And finally, who will never forget, the entire final 2 hours of 98.7 "Kiss-FM" and it was in the 9 PM hour where Bob Slade hosted a special "Week in Review" show, and "Soul Beginnings" has preempted because it was also the last show a week prior to this one. The rest of the Kiss-FM gang came back once again and reflecting back on the station for the last 30 years and giving phone calls and saying their final goodbyes. The last song that it was played on that station was like I said "Brother's Gonna Work It Out" by Willie Hutch. I tried to recorded the last song, and the stream just cut off, so I have the same song and I finally pieced together to make it the final farewell to the station with the full song with just 15 seconds of blank at the end. No station launch at all. Here it is.http://www.mediafire.com/?99c3x1ol76pfzxz
Meanwhile, on the AM side, WEPN at 1050 ran a promo on ESPN Radio will be moving to 98.7 in just 25 minutes away. This was from last Sunday night while I was recording the last hour of "Kiss-FM" before the flip. This was recorded on AM, due to popular demand, it contains the last 25 minutes of the "Baseball Tonight" post-game show where the Devil Rays played against the Rangers, and after that, you'll hear the launch of ESPN Radio 98.7 where it will be simulcasting on 1050 AM, and you can hear static during the launch. There is a better quality version of the same launch can be found in the Format Change Archive site. The reason why is that 1050 had a better signal in all surrounding areas including the Hudson Valley listening area. I live in Kingston, NY where I can get ESPN Radio at 1050 AM in the daytime and even at night, the signal is 50,000 watts and it goes into Poughkeepsie and Kingston, as you known, Kingston is 90 miles north of the city. ESPN Radio will still be around at 1050 until it will become ESPN Deportes Radio 1050 this fall. Here it is.http://www.mediafire.com/?mbdddoudu2ced3l
