Petition For 99.5 KISS To Play New Rock Music

This petition had 314 supporters

For many years now, 99.5 KISS has been the primary rock station on the radio in San Antonio. The only other major rock station is 106.7 The Eagle, which plays "Classic Rock". 99.5 KISS is labeled as a "Mainstream Rock" station, and the majority of songs that are played every day are ones that are repeated within 24 hours or less. There is no doubt that there are San Antonio citizens who enjoy bands from the 90's and early 2000's. However, there are only so many songs and bands you can play repeatedly without the station losing their audience over time.

Bands such as Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Staind, Green Day, and Guns and Roses to name a few, are played nearly every day but there has yet to be a broadcast of any new songs from different bands, or even the same bands 99.5 KISS-FM plays every day. 

Why is it that the only Green Day songs being played are from the 90's and early 2000's? Green Day released a new album in October 2016, and there has yet to be a sign of 99.5 KISS-FM playing any of those songs. What of other bands that release new albums, but never get their music heard by the people of San Antonio simply because 99.5 KISS-FM refuses to play music released within the past (almost) 10 years. 

The goal when getting the signatures for this petition is to get the people of 99.5 KISS-FM radio station and Cox Media Group to make alterations to what type of rock music is being broadcast. While keeping the same few songs they play currently as of February 23, 2017 is acceptable, the process of incorporating new bands, songs, and genres of rock to the station would provide a much better variety for the citizens of San Antonio.

We are living in the past with listening to the greatest rock hits of the 90's and early 2000's, it's time for the rockers of San Antonio to get current.
