KiSS RADiO, broadcast in Vancouver, Chilliwack, and Abbotsford, has become the first fully interactive radio station in Canada, giving listeners musical control.

The radio station is now allowing listeners to select the music played, all day, every day, through the KiSS RADiO app and website.

Starting today, listeners can choose from the station’s playlist, with songs pushed up and down in real time, as listeners vote on what songs to play.

In a release, John Hipper, program director, said audience expectations were changing, and the move would help engage listeners on digital platforms.

“This innovative approach to song selection makes the listening experience a true partnership between our station and our audience by offering listeners the chance to co-create the musical experience of the entire station,” said Hipper.

Listeners can also see a list of the most popular songs recently played and register to get alerts when their favourite songs are about to play.
