As we told you yesterday, 98.7 Kiss FM/WRKS reached the big 3-0.

To celebrate, the longtime Soul and R&B station is reuniting past air personalities. On Thursday, August 11th, Kiss is holding its 30th Anniversary Reunion Party on the plaza at the Adam Clayton Powell Jr. State Office Building (125th Street and Adam Clayton Powell Jr. Boulevard).

The list of guests is a who’s who of Kiss from yesteryear.

Legendary alumni Ken “Spider” Webb, Mike Love, and Diana King are just a few who will take part in the festivities. Fans will also see DJ Ace, Tanya Simpson, Bobby Gailes, and Hot 97 DJ Funkmaster Flex. And there will be many more Kiss on-air notables, including Dean Meminger, Nicole Brown, Raqiyah Mays.

The current lineup of Kiss stars will be at the Harlem gathering, led by newsman and host Bob Slade. He’ll be joined by Shaila, Lenny Green, Bugsy, Felix Hernandez, DJ Cocoa Chanelle, Chuck Chillout, Red Alert, DJ Qua, Ed Lover, Mike Shannon, Lil Nat, and Venus.

From beat-boxing to break-dancing, from double-dutch to drumlines, 98.7 Kiss FM’s 30th Anniversary Reunion is set to take you back in time for the biggest classic outdoor party on the plaza.

The party also features a vintage DJ mix-off and dancing to the sounds of your favorite  jams from the 1980s, 1990s and today.

“The difference that Kiss FM has made in its community over the last 30 years has been extraordinary meaningful because of the talent and unique people that have contributed individually and passionately,” Alex Cameron, Emmis New York SVP Market Manager, says. “I love how much the Kiss family of listeners and staffers take pride in their communities, heritage, values, and each other.”
