Another complaint for Kiss

London dance station Kiss 100 has received a complaint from a listener about a track which contained lyrics which were offensive and unsuitable for broadcast at a time when children were available to listen.

The station played a track by S-Express as part of a Friday afternoon non-stop sequence of dance mixes, and it is because of this that the non-playlisted track made it to air.

Rule 1.14 of Ofcom?s Broadcasting Code states that The most offensive language must not be broadcast (before the watershed or) when children are particularly likely to be listening.

So although Ofcom appreciates that the station was introducing an initiative to include nonplaylisted material during daytime, they say more care should have been taken to thoroughly vet the material and exclude explicit or offensive language. The regulator has welcomed the broadcaster?s subsequent action to make sure this does not happen again, and, in the circumstances, now consider the matter resolved.
