98.7 Kiss FM

It’s hot in Alabama. Always. So when THEY say it’s hot, well, that’s something. It’s the #1 news story in Birmingham. It’s the #1 thing people are talking about. So 98.7 Kiss FM went out today with coolers of popsicles and gave them out to construction crews and road crews and landscapers and other seasonal employees. Sometimes it’s possible to over-think the obvious.
